We’re working on an improved version of blink(1) and have launched a Kickstarter for it.

blink(1) mk2 is an updated version of the blink(1) super status light. The original blink(1) made it easy to connect any data source in the cloud or on your computer to a full-color RGB LED so you can know what’s happening without checking any windows, going to any websites or typing any commands. blink(1) mk2 maintains backward-compatibility while adding better functionality and great new features.

The main new features are:
- Better USB support
- Brighter via dual RGB LEDs
- Independently-addressable LEDs
- Improved Blink1Control application

We think it’s going to be great.

  1. I wasn’t previously aware of the blink(1) but I was given a blinkstick (http://blinkstick.com/) recently and it seems very similar.

  2. Yup, the BlinkStick is very similar. It’s a great product, and has some some really good software for it.
