<h2>What is this thing?</h2>
<p>blinkyboard is a miniscule, open-source device for controlling flexible LED strips. It supports many of the most-common LED strips on the market, including those sold by <a href="">SparkFun</a> and <a href="">Adafruit</a>.</p>
<h3>Comming soon to Maker Faire, the blinkyboard Kickstarter project! </h3>
<p>We'll be launching the official blinkyboard Kickstarter at Maker Faire New York 2012. We hope to get funding for our first run of production blinkies. The blinkyboard is so small that we've gone ahead and embedded it right into the LED strip itself. Want to get started with your own blinky LED strip? Just plug the blinkyboard into your computer's USB port, fire up the easy-to-use color sequencing software, and you'll be blinkin' away in no time flat.</p>

<h3>Hackers and Makers</h3>
<p>In addition to being open-source, the blinkyboard is entirely maker-friendly. It's based on the Atmega 32u4, same as the <a href="">Arduino Leonardo</a> and the <a href="">Teensy</a>. The bootloader shows up as an Arudino Leonardo, so you can reprogram the blinkyboard using the Arduino IDE with no modifications. </p>
<p>In addition to supporting several different configurations of LED strips, there are several additional pins of the 32u4 exposed for hacking purposes. We'll provide support as best we can, so go crazy and let us know what you make!</p>
