Nice turnkey solution to interface with BlinkM…with a decent Java library available…which could use more JavaDoc. ;)
My only complaint is the hardware packaging. This module could have been far shorter…and trying to stuff it and a female-to-female USB adapter into a small-sized illuminating device (e.g., build status orb, Munny) is difficult. I find that arrangement preferable to leaving the dongle plugged into my PC and then remoting to the illuminating device with a ribbon cable. In my config, you can use a standard USB cable to connect the illuminating device and your PC…but this dongle is far too long for that arrangement for most f my applications.
Sure, I could bust out a soldering iron and solve the problem, but seriously, if I was inclined to do that, I probably wouldn’t have bought this over and arduino mini in the first place. :)
Wish that it was a third of it’s length…and was USB female by default.
No public wish lists :(
