Controlling LED Strip Light Color with VEX V5

I finally got around to making this work while I got some animations rendering.

@jpearman would there be any way to do this without the mc29’s?


Would that not be considered functional if it was used in tandem with robot mechanisms for scoring? I thought it was a general rule of thumb that any form of decoration can’t give cues into any other mechanisms.

What? It doesn’t. It’s purely decoration. It doesn’t give any cues to anything. What do you mean?

Very epic, now I can have blinkers on my bot to tell my ally when I am going to turn so we avoid crashing into eachother.


Honestly, how did you do this in the first place?

3 mc29’s, a soldering iron, some broken VEX wires, and a lot of patience.

You can use the mc29s to control non-vex parts? That’s pretty cool

Yes. All they do is take a power, ground, and signal, and convert it into a 2-wire power source with a power level I can change.
