    interesting, could be a useful device, perhaps with relays as well as LEDs - presumably the USB input deriving from their software running on the PC could in-principle (IIUC) be derived from Cortex, via its macro & API facilities ... presumably such an approach could be used with Arduino & Picaxe boards, too (???) - though suspect all of them would present us (at least) with a steep learning curve !

    I have also seen somewhere on the web RGB controllers based on either the Arduino or Picaxe boards.But most where for single RGB LEDS or at most a row of 3 red, 3 blue and 3green .
    I guess Google is your friend to find out more.

    Don't know if this is any use but can be controlled with a remote (so could use IR commands from cortex...)

    I have bought a multimeter from these guys before and it arrived OK.

    That's an interesting option, thanks. Comparatively low cost but would need to add a IR module as none of the DFPs likely to have line of sight.
