Have you wanted an LED that can fade from deep red to bright purple? Flash like a police light? Turn on with the subtle fade of an incandescent bulb? Flicker like a candle? That's BlinkM.
A BlinkM is an ultra bright wide-angle RGB LED connected to a micro-controller. Using BlinkM Sequencer, software that fuses a color picker with a drum machine, you program BlinkM to be any color, and blink and fade in virtually any pattern.
When you've programmed your BlinkM, you unplug it and pop it into your project. Apply 5 volts, and it does its thing, whether that's glowing your favorite pinkish purple or pulsing like an old Neon light.

(NOTE: An Arduino I/O board is required to program your BlinkM. Once programmed a BlinkM can be unplugged and will work in stand-alone mode)
- Super bright (8000 mcd)
- Can glow almost any color (24 bit)
- No programming experience required (just plug in and follow the well written quick start guide)
- Standalone operation (once programed attach power (5v) and it will run through the programmed sequence)
