The Neopixels (a.k.a WS2812B or SK6812) are small in size LED with less circuitry and almost no messy wires since the driver IC is embedded into each LED. Each LED has three colors of RGB light and hence they can be combined to get almost any color of your choice. This makes it a very good choice for wearable electronics and other decorative lights. This is an example of NeoPixels strip lighting up in different colors.
Each LED on this strip can be individually addressed and programmed, meaning each LED can be set to glow in a different color. Also, you can add as many LEDs in series as you like to control all of them with a single controller. LED strips can have up to 200+ LEDs, the only constrain is the power and RAM of your controller. If you are using a controller like Arduino, then Adafruit has a library readily available using which these LEDs can be easily programmed. So if you are looking for easy to use programmable LED light then NeoPixels are what you are looking for.
Neopixels strip male & female connectors are some of the useful accessories that you need to operate the LED strip.
