With the Blinkstick

The Blinkstick is another very bright and colourful LED display device from the UK.  This one connects to the USB port rather than the Pi’s GPIO port.   That means this works alongside the version of ISSAbove with the LCD display.

I purchased the pre-assembled version (I’ll try some soldering sometime… maybe).  The kit version costs £9.99 and the pre-assembled version is £14.99

Mine took a couple of weeks to arrive from the UK (seemed to take forever).  However it was well worth the wait.

I could not find the pre-assembled version for sale in the USA… but you can get the Kit version from Adafruit.
