    My Segments Display

    My new Trafopop jacket! A customized segment display made from a strip of 186 Neopixels. In code the strip can be separated into as many individual segments as possible – the design of this display makes use of 20 separate segments to display the entire roman alphabet. A microphone detects sound amplitude (volume) and is used to time the sequencing of the display to the beat of the music.
