LEDs are cool. Low power, bright, colourful, and now fully networkable! Use the BlinkM Smart LED to dynamically illuminate your project!

Description [Hide]

The BlinkM Smart LED is a networkable and fully programmable full-colour RGB LED. This means you can link up to 127 of these units in a chain, and individually control the colour and intensity of each one. Or, just pre-program it with what you want it to do, connect it to 5VDC and stand back and watch it do its thing!

Here's what it features:

  • 8000mcd (bright!) RGB LED
  • 140° viewing angle
  • Set colours with 24-bit control using RGB or HSB specifications
  • Randomized colour flow with ranges based on previous colour (no strange colour transitions)
  • Control fads with variable duration timing & fade speeds
  • 18 built-in light scripts (sequences)
  • Can store scripts of up to 49 commands
  • Stand-alone operation - no microcontroller needed for script playback
  • Compatible with TWI / I2C networking command structure
  • Supports addressing of up to 127 BlinkM units per chain
  • Listens to "EVERYBODY DO THIS:" type commands on network chain
  • Able to have network address reconfigured
  • Firmware upgradable
  • 5V TTL standard inputs
  • Sample code available for Basic Stamp, Freeduino SB / Arduino compatible (plugs right into board)
