I'm working on this project where I have interfaced a LED strip (a two wire LED strip) with this Arduino (its not an Uno). I have setup every thing correctly according to this instructable. I'm able to make a simple blinky pattern and I turn it on/off with an Android app I made to communicate with the Arduino using Bluetooth on my phone. Cool.
What I cannot understand is, since the strip is two wired, how should I address individual LEDs on the strip to make more complex patterns? Can I use bit shifts? Reading an article from Makezine (insufficient reps to post more than 2 links), it says that I should connect the strup directly to the output pin. IMO, this will fry the Arduino or in a less virulent sway, not light up the strip in any way.
