The brightness and colors (RGB) of each LED on the ring can be controlled separately. It comes with pre-burned bootloader which has several built in led scripts.
Allows I2C/Serial communication from any MCU and can be serially linked to make a beautiful Art piece via I2C.
Can be programmed using standard Arduino IDE by FTDI breakout board.
