teensy prop shield idea

Hi everyone newbie arduino guy here, i have this idea of creating led nunchaku/poi that can understand the direction of rotation and light up a predefined color, say forward rotation green backward rotation blue, diagonal swing red and flat rotation yellow. Could this be possible using the teensy prop shields gyro and accelerometer or is this just pie in the sky. I would use adafuit neopixel strips maybe 16 long on both sides so 32 leds per poi/ handle powered by an 18650 battery boosted to 5v. Please let me know if this could be coded and calibrated to give the effect i want or if im just being silly

any thoughts anybody
