Nova Blinky is a single-board microcontroller system designed by, and for, The Nova Labs maker space in Reston, Virginia. It is designed to be used in introductory hardware and sofware classes.
It uses an Atmel ATMega 32u4 processor. It looks like an Arduino Leonardo to the Arduino IDE software. Simply connect the USB interface to a PC and set the board type to "Leonardo".
In addition to all I/O bring brought out to prototyping headers, it has 12 LEDs arranged as a clockface, and two buttons, allowing students to immediately learn about basic input and output (I/O) programming concepts with no additional hardware.
