Blinks SDK

After you have installed Arduino and launched the application, you will notice that Arduino has created a folder in your Documents folder named Arduino. Download the zip file above, then follow these steps to install the Blinks Library:

  1. Unzip the Blinks Library you downloaded into ~/Documents/Arduino/hardware. Note: If this is your first time with custom hardware, you will need to create the hardware folder.
  2. Restart Arduino, then click `Tools` in your menu bar, and navigate down to Board: you should now see Move38: Blinks Tile at the bottom. Select it.
  3. Click on Tools in your menu bar, and navigate down to Programmer: select the programmer Blinks USBTinyISP
