Basic BlinkMs are ultra-bright wide angle smart LEDs. It can put a bright spot of any color in just about any project.
BlinkM is a smart LED that creates sophisticated lighting effects without having to know any electronics engineering or programming. It can be an LED that fades from deep red to bright purple, ashes like a police light, "breathes" softly, or ickers like a candle.
BlinkM consists of an ultra bright wide-angle RGB LED attached to a microcontroller. Open Source sequencer software and libraries for C, Java and Processing makes it easy to create nearly any RGB color or pattern. Once programmed, the BlinkM works as a standalone light that can be reprogrammed thousands of times, or stay tethered and be controlled in real time.
• Full-color RGB LED w/ 24-bit color control • Can plug directly into Arduino or LinkM, no wiring or other components needed! • Specify colors using 24-bit RGB or HSB • Fade between colors with variable timing and fade speeds • Randomized color selection, with ranges and based on previous color • 18 built-in light scripts (sequences) • Create and save light scripts of up to 49 commands long • Stand-alone operation: No microcontroller needed for light script playback • Up to 127 BlinkM channels on a single two-wire network • Low power consumption • Java, C, and Processing libraries and programming examples
