Sabertrio, a Malaysia based custom saber company, announced the development of Neo Chip, a neopixel blade plug adapter. How the adapter works is Neo Chip attaches to most standard thick walled blade plugs (3.2 mm thick), allowing lightsaber enthusiasts to adapt the static blade plugs into neopixel blade plugs (thin walled, 1.6mm thick blade plugs would require an additional adapter ring).
