BlinkM + Arduino = BlinkMuino

Todbot has a wonderful article on how to use the BlinkM Smart LEDs with Arduino programs.  You will need a low cost AVR programmer,  some additions to the Arduino environment, and simple hardware hookup.

You can pick up the mentioned USBtinyISP programmer in the Adafruit Store.

I can’t wait to give this a try.

  1. Hmm… am I the only one sick of sticking the “uino” suffix to pretty much every project Arduino is involved somehow? When I connect an I2C clock chip to Arduino, does it become “Clockuino”?

  2. Ok, I admit that’s a little different case – mea culpa 😉 But my gripe about everything-duino in general remains valid 😉
