LEDs are great. But with any project there comes a point where flashing is simply not enough. For these cases an RGB (Red, Green, BLue) LED is the answer.
With an RGB LED you'll be able to produce any colour glow your heart desires.
At first using an RGB LED seems quite complex, but it quite quickly becomes clear that its no more difficult than controlling one of their single colour counter parts.
What follows is a quick guide to get you started controlling an RGB LED first with wires then with an Arduino microcontroller.
