Fascinating Kickstarter project for blink(1): the world's best indicator light. Basically, a small gizmo no bigger than a bluetooth adapter that fits in any USB port. The device can then easily be configured to give you all sorts of information (email, weather, etc.) simply with colours, rate of flashing and brightness. I wants.

blink(1) is a super status light: it packs three dimensions of information (color, brightness and pattern) into a single tiny package that fits into any USB port on nearly every device. It makes it incredibly easy to connect any data source in the cloud or on your computer to a full-color RGB LED so you can know what's happening without checking any windows, going to any websites or typing any commands.
