ThingM’s blink(1) USB-connected LED indicator light is programmable to suit your needs
Ever wished your desktop or laptop computer had a flashing LED light that kept you informed on various events, similar to the flashing light of a BlackBerry? Well, ThingM has just the solution for your needs, a simple programmable USB-connected LED light called the blink(1). Using a full-color RGB LED, the blink(1) can be programmed to flash with different colors, brightness levels or in different patterns to inform you in about events like Twitter updates, your computer’s processor load and the like. Also, the designers have come up with open source tools and applications for the blink(1), allowing you to program and use this little LED flashing light, that is currently looking for funding on KickStarte,r just as you please.
