In the Maker Shed: MinM

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.

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
