NEW PRODUCT – BlinkyTape by Blinkinlabs

1605_LRG

NEW PRODUCT – BlinkyTape by Blinkinlabs – BlinkyTape is a very special LED strip, taking the smarts of NeoPixels and combining it with an Arduino-compatible for an all-in-one ready to go design. You don’t have to source your own microcontroller, power supply or connectors. Simply plug in a standard USB battery pack or wall charger, and you’re good to blink.

BlinkyTape has 60 independently controllable full-color RGB LEDs, all wrapped up in a weather-resistant silicone case. All this is powered by a integrated light processor (e.g. Atmega32u4 microcontroller) which has a standard micro-USB connector. This means you can connect it to a battery or power supply to run on its own, or it can talk to a computer for interactive installations.

When you first plug in your BlinkyTape, you’ll be greeted by a colorful rainbow pattern. But the fun doesn’t stop there: the BlinkyTape comes with a full set of companion software to make it easy for you to make the patterns and effects you want. You can graphically draw pattens and animations the LED strip using PatternPaint (http://blinkinlabs.com/software/patternpaint/). If dynamic lighting is more your style, check out our Processing library (http://blinkinlabs.com/blinkytape/docs/processing/) — it has a range of examples that allow you to create an LED light soundtrack to your favorite tunes, a backlight for your monitor, and more!

To power the BlinkyTape, we suggest one of our USB battery packs or a Mintyboost Kit. The current draw is about 300mA for average pattern usage.
