A programmable usbstick for psychedelic blinky applications and more.Designed by overflo, Ships from Austria
SORRY! NO SHIPPING INSIDE THE EU FROM TINDIE.COM - But you can find all my work and other things at https://hackerspaceshop.com as well and we ship worldwide from that store.

The usblinky is a very small USBstick with a cable that you can use to drive digitally addressable ledstrips.
You can use WS2811, WS2812, WS2812B or any other ledstrip that has support in an arduino library.
The USBstick has 4 pins on the end of its PCB.
Pin 3 can be used to attach a Button to GND and you can use this button to switch programs, turn on/off your ledstrip or dim the brightness.
Example code how to use this is available on github and the usblinky comes already preloaded with code to drive 20 pcs WS2812B.
One usecase for the usblinky is to connect it to a 20pcs WS2812B ledstrip and insert this into a 3D-printed object. Reference designs are available on thingiverse.
But you can use it for so much more. It is basically a programmable USB 1.0 device .. Think about keyboards or mouse funtions and i bet you can come up with other usecases as well ;)
By default usblinky ships as a KIT. This means you need to assemble it yourself, enabling you to build exactly what you want. If you dont feel comfortable with that we can assemble it for you for a small fee.
The stick comes preprogrammed with the bootloader and a demo programm that drives 20 leds and uses a button to switch patterns, dim and turn on and off the leds. To write your own effect you can simply use the Digispark Arduino environment.
Also available are the 3D ORB KIT accessories. This parts allow you to build a 3D ORB yourself. Simply download the .stl files from thingiverse or our github and print your own ORB on a 3D printer.
We might also sell the whole thing assembled and printed for you. But this is timeconsuming and therefor expensive. Please contact me for a quote.
