Let me let you in on a little secret… that ugly sweater from the Part 1 guide was my sweater from last year. Yup, that right. I’ve had a year to refine, learn and hack a new sweater. And I have to say that I’m pretty proud of this little project and so I want you to be able to make one as well!
Here is the executive summary of the project along with a video of my upgraded (read “awesome”) ugly sweater. The core of this project is a cool sequencer called Vixen, an AdaFruit Flora (with a FastLED library), and a bunch of NeoPixel stips (or other digitally addressable RGB LEDs) Grab a gift bag, load your laptop, some speakers and tissue paper - you are set!
