Ramp up programmable LED troubleshooting with the BlinkBox

Arduino TeamJuly 23rd, 2018

Programmable LEDs are amazing pieces of hardware, allowing hackers to add a rainbow of colors to projects at reasonable prices. Troubleshooting these devices, however, can be a pain, so Devon Bray developed the “BlinkBox” to help with this task.

The resulting Arduino-based tester can work with multiple types of LEDs, and is able to cycle through each individual LED module in a string, and change the animation pattern as needed. He had previously done this kind of testing on a breadboard, but his new iteration is much more permanent and professional looking. 

You can find CAD and code for it on GitHub if you’d like to build your own!
