It's a 1.8" by 2.95" double-sided circuit board with a mounting pin on the back side that requires assembly and soldering. It has 35 single or bi-color LEDs that will display various user-selectable patterns and text messages. There is an IR emitter and receiver for two way communication to other blinkie boards. This blinkie design was introduced in 2006 at Duckon 15

One of the special features of the 5x7 is the ability to customize the first scrolling text message. The programming guide is available in [MS Word] and [PDF] formats. Go to the section labeled "Programming Mode" and follow the instructions.

One caveat, with all the extra goodies, a bit more soldering skill is needed.

Some beginners (and some experts) have had trouble soldering the four battery holders and the mounting pin to the board. The circuit boards come with these components already soldered on.

In 2007, an updated version of the software was released, adding support for single color LEDs.
