This project was inspired by my hobby of poi spinning . The project was mostly built with stuff found around the house: yoga ball pumps, silicone, packing tape, rope, and ball bearings. I had to purchase silicone tape, moldable silicone rubber, LEDS, and Arduino Feather boards. This is honestly the first step in the project. I intend to add more intricacy to the light patterns, more color options, and eventually will have a Bluetooth app to use as a color picker. Please feel free to build your own poi and share any cool additions.

Here's the code, it has a couple libraries and the Feather does not register on the boards menu of Arduino, I had to install Arduino SAMD Boards (32-bits ARM Cortex-M3) in the Board's Manager and then select the Arduino Genuino Zero in the boards menu.
