Making an interactive LED cylinder

I wanted to learn about addressable RGB LED’s, and how i could control them with human input. I ended up making a cylinder where you can choose the color by picking it up and turning it. It was made with a soda can, some crafting foam, RBG leds, Arduino Nano, MPU6050 IMU (accelerometer + gyro), a 12v lipo battery, a 5v voltage regulator. The Arduino code can be found here.
