4 LED RGB controller

[Steven] was inspired by the BlinkM and Shiftbrite modules, but really wanted something that could be controlled via RS232. He decided to build his own RGB LED module capable of PWM that fit his needs. He’s using a PIC16F628 microcontroller as the base. Each module has 4 individually addressable LEDs with multiple intensities for each color. The units can be daisy chained as well. The schematics and PCB files are available on his site for download.

    why do so many projects get on this board that just make lights blink?

    This guy managed to get video and sound to play on an 8 bit processor and do TCP/IP at the same time

    DerAxeman: I suppose not everyone is a pro. The dude in that video you posted probably started off with blinking lights, too.
