This module contains a strip of 8 individually controllable RGB LEDs arranged in a serial (daisy-chain) configuration. Each LEDs red, green, and blue, elements can be individually set to one of 256 intensity settings allowing a over 16 million colour variations. The module also has power and data connection at both ends so that multiple modes can be connected together whilst still only requiring one digital pin to drive them.

What's more, to make controlling these LED's from an Arduino as simple as possible we have written our own exclusive library what will handle all the complicated bits. We also decided to go one better an allow you to stack multiple the strips in columns to create a full colour message display! See our forum or blog for more information on this library and requirements.
