DIY LED Learning Kit


Regular price $45.00

These LED kits created by Caine Barber - an engineer at Rave Cravings - were designed to teach people with no programming knowledge, how to program individually controllable LEDs. These are the types of LEDs you see at festivals, concerts, or the ones you see on peoples houses who do the light shows during Christmas time.

The kit includes all of the hardware components, instructions on how to setup the Arduino software, and a set of lessons developed by our engineer, Caine Barber.

The pre-assembled version only requires that you have: a computer and a micro-USB cord.

The pre-assembled kit includes:

  • 1G Thumb Drive with instructions, examples, and 7 lessons
  • 1-meter strip of 30 WS2812b LEDs with female JST connector
  • Rave Cravings - Light Up Your Life pre-assembled LED controller

The unassembled version requires that you have: a soldering iron, a hot glue gun, needle nose pliers, breadboard(optional), a computer and a micro-USB cord.

The unassembled kit includes:

  • 1G Thumb Drive with instructions & examples, and 7 lessons
  • 1-meter strip of 30 WS2812b LEDs with female JST connector
  • Rave Cravings - Light Up Your Life PCB Board 
  • Arduino Leonardo 5v
  • 2 - push buttons
  • 1 - on/off switch
  • 2 -10k ohm resistors
  • 1 - (300-500) ohm resistor
  • 1 - 3xAA battery holder
  • 1 - 3-Pin male JST connector
  • 3 - silicon strip mounting brackets

The assembled LED controller is able to be powered by the 3xAA battery holder and can be turned on and off by using the on/off switch. The controller may also be powered using the micro-USB port so it can be powered through your computer, a mobile power bank, a mobile phone wall charger, etc.

Note: For people with no programming experience, it is recommended that at least 1 day is spent on each lesson before moving on to the next. This will allow you to be able to focus on learning a few new things a day so it doesn't seem too overwhelming. Some lessons may take more than 1 day to get a good understanding.
