Color Changing LEDs

The next idea I had is that I could set up the LEDs in such a way that I can turn them on or off via my computer! This was an awesome idea, I figured I could setup an AutoHotkey script and be able to setup hotkeys to hit while in game!.

But wait, what about colored LEDs? The LED strip I got is just red, and cannot change colors. So why not get an LED strip that has color changing LEDs!

So I ordered one of these:

Individually Addressable Color Changing LED Chain
This is a LED chain, that each LED can individually have its brightness or color changed. Pretty sweet!  But the next hurdle was, how do I get my computer to communicate with the LED chain?
