Andras has posted on the Facebook page that he is reworking the site for changes. Maybe contact him there for a board.

Ah okay thanks. I don't have Facebook so I guess I'll just wait for his site to come back up. The new Infinity board sounds worth waiting for anyway.

Hi ! I'm planning to build a Homebrew lightsaber, but for now I'm gathering informations about components. I wish to know if these strips are worthy for a neopixel blade (144/m) ?

@xl97 Thank you ! And what do you think of this DFPlayer ? https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/32832586627.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.58396c37ewdBe3

DFPlayer = no

Looks t be a clone.

* Which may or may not still work,....but whatever library you will end using, the chip may not fully support it.

True DFPlayers and the default DFRobot library (and I would imagine the ones used in this project) support the YX5200 chip set I believe.

Not the one displayed in the images from the link you posted.

@xl97 Thank you for your quick reply ! Maybe this one is a better choice ?

While neopixel stripes from AliExpress might conform to the WS2812B (or similar) spec, they are of inferior quality. Please do yourself a favor and do not order from AliExpress.
You can get good quality neopixel stripes from Amazon, many ebay sellers mostly from US and EU sources sell reliable stripes as well.

One more hint: ships specializing in saber parts like JQ or KR from England (I mention them as they are still EU for 2 more hours...) sell stripes for comparable price like other vendors. Worth to have a look! Same applies probably to US-sources.
