Use the Red, Green and Blue scroll bars to create a colour (16 bit, each led). Then click on the virtual leds. Alternatively use the checkboxes at the side to have the leds follow whatever colour is created at any time. The 16 option buttons choose which Instance you are working on. There are shortcuts here for copying. Preview the sequence and with different speeds. Choose names for them and save. Next, while holding down the Speed button switch the Ear Ring on. Then release the switch. It is in Upload mode now. Plug in one of the Ear Rings to the USB cable and to a PC port. Open the Uploader program, shown here:

 

To upload Sequence 2 click the relevant button. The South led with flash blue and then stay lit after data is uploaded. For Sequence 1, the North led will illuminate instead. Whichever sequences are uploaded, after pressing the Speed switch again the blue-lit leds will turn green. Press the switch on the programming stub, to swap interface to the other surface. Upload the same to the other side of the Ear Ring. While the first side was being uploaded the second side was waiting for USB signals, because the switches are common to both sides. Uploading mode is exited by powering off. The reversed orientation of one side in relation to another is dealt with internally. Switch the unit on and use the Sequence button and Speed button as required. A press of one second or more will switch to a dimmer setting for the leds. This has three levels of dimming, a fourth press will resume full brightness. Each Sequence has it's own speed setting and these can be 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2.5, 5, 10, 15, 30 and 60 seconds, per Instance. There are 16 Instances per Sequence. Speeds, current sequence and brightness are all saved to non-volatile memory.  

Each Ear Ring is powered by two CR2032 3V cells.
