When Ben turned 16, he purchased a 1998 GMC pickup…Ben was born in 1998 so this pickup is as old as he is. I thought it would be fun to install NeoPixels on the front of his truck. Since he was a student at GHS (Greenville High School) it only made since to replace the GMC logo with a GHS logo. I did 3 different versions for his truck, and when I started the 3rd one I decided I should chronicle the process.
The truck lights are run by an Arduino Mega 2560 with a Bluefruit BLE to control it from his smartphone via bluetooth. There are 80 NeoPixels in the parking lights, 144 across to top of the grill and 256 NeoPixels in the GHS logo for a grand total of 480 Neopixels on the front of his truck.
Here is a video I made for the vendor of the LCD screen I was using as a controller. It shows the system including the in-cab controller.
