MinM is a tiny smart LED that's designed for wearable technologies, UAVs and handheld devices. It uses a wide angle SMD RGB LED to shrink the footprint to be 0.5 cm on a side, and less than 0.25 cm high.
, its older sibling, BlinkM MinM is a smart LED that can glow any color and blink and fade in virtually any pattern.
Once you've programmed your BlinkM MinM, you unplug it and pop it into your project. Apply 5 volts, and it does its thing, whether that's glowing your favorite pinkish purple, or pulse like an old neon light. All for under $15.
In addition, MinM:
Has open through-holes that make it easy to sew onto garments or mount in unusual locations.
Has no protruding components, so it lies smooth and won't snag.
Comes packaged with an unsoldered 4-pin header that can be soldered in or friction fit for programming using standard 0.1" headers, like a standard BlinkM or MaxM.
Smoothly mixes colors from the individual LED dies using an integrated diffuser.
Can read inputs on its programming pins, which means that it can run standalone and switch between sequences with no external control.
Can be a drop-in replacement for existing BlinkMs in tight spaces.
Allows for digital input. The BlinkM control language contains like commands for using the programming pins as inputs to switch between scripts.
Has a long duration pause command for up to 91 hours, so it's appropriate for architectural or ambient display installations.
Acts as an I2C master and can control other BlinkMs, MaxMs and MinMs on the same I2C bus, eliminating the need for a secondary controller in certain circumstances.
Is very bright (of course!).
