Re: [tlug] Wanted: LED stripes, controllable from Linux

Hi Christian,

I know -- you said not sold from another part of the world -- but once
you implied "programmable", I thought of Adafruit (based in New York,
I think).

You can take a look at this: .
Or this for the search term: .

I'm sure somewhere in Kanto should have this...  Last time I was in
Akihabara (long time ago; pre-covid), I tried to find a shop that sold
stuff similar to Adafruit, but was unable to find one.

Good luck!
