Neopixel Shadow Limitation?
« on: July 20, 2018, 08:15:52 AM »
whatís the best way to reduce shadows on neopixel strips? I know that 3 strips seem to work well that way but suck up a lot of power. Are there any special diffusers or LED strips (i.e. adafruit skinny), that work well and arenít as energetically expensive as 3 strips?
Thanks

Use 3 layers of packing foam and a few meters of clear gift wrap.

I was just a minute away from starting a new thread, asking if packing foam would make good diffusion for pixle blades!!!! Thanks fir answering my question.
