I soldered new header pins to the light strip to replace the flimsy wires. The badge was going to have an LCD screen, and I purchased a cheap one, very cheap. I connected the display according to the pin labels, which was my first mistake. The documentation for the screen was lousy, and I had to hunt for help decoding the pin functions. I found a terrible video describing how to upload some Arduino code for a clock display, but the hardware assumed a typical Arduino with an unknown shield. At this point, I discovered the protocol was not I2C but used SPI, which turned out to be a problem because my ESP32 board didn't expose those pins. I will need a different board to continue testing.
