  • You can see most of the colors well enough without a diffuser, but no doubt it would help. I have 5 dozen of these purchased from another site, and they're pretty darn bright even in daylight!

  • You can always check adafruit (they have these as 'NeoPixels') as they have a usage guide. But basically each led takes 24 bit color information (RGB) and you send out 24 bits x however many LEDs you have chained and the IC removes its color data and forwards the remaining to the next in line. There are very specific timings needed but its doable with arduinos.

No public wish lists :(
