My teammate bought rgb lights from adafruit for our robot, and he said he read somewhere you can connect them to the vex cortex (not v5). If that is true, can someone tell me how this could be done?
You can’t do it with the neopixels because of the timing requirement of their protocol. There are some from pololu that work with 2 data pins and are more forgiving with timing. We used those a lot until we switched to V5, timing on the ADI is whack and they don’t work with it.
