The Blinkt! provides a wash or controllable color that is ideal for mood-lighting, 1x8 pixel art, persistence of vision effects, status indications, or just blasting color into your surroundings.
Each pixel is individually controllable and dim-able allowing you to create gradients, pulsing effects, or just flash them on and off like crazy.
