BlinkM MinM
MinM, from the Maker Shed, is a tiny smart LED that’s designed for wearable technologies, UAVs and handheld devices. It has all the features of its bigger brother, the BlinkM but in a smaller package. Programming the MinM is easy, simply download the BlinkM sequencer software, plug it into a microcontroller (like an Arduino), and soon you will have it flashing like a police light, flickering like a candle, or fading softly like the sleep light on your computer. After programming, just hook the MinM up to a 5 volt source and it will continue the sequence.
