Using ttl OR-Gate as Logic level converter for NeoPixel with WeMos


I want to control the NeoPixels (150 leds, 5 meters) with a WeMos pro mini. Now when I connect it to the data wire, nothing is happening. I think because the WeMos is 3.3v, and the leds are 5(.2)V

Now I know the logic ttl ic chips have an input voltage min. 2V.

Is this gonna work, or do I need an actual logic level converter?
I don’t know the logic or gate can switch fast enough…

It worked!!!
