+ - Beijing Makerspace's Latest Creation: Microduino

Submitted by Microduino
Microduino (3032183) writes "Imagine yourself as a maker, a hacker, a creator. You have big ideas and you want to realize them and make them tangible. To power them you’ll need a micro-control unit. But let’s be honest, technology should not be as big as your ideas; you deserve better than that. Microduino is your solution.

Microduino is a microcontroller, but what exactly is that? A microcontroller is a small computer on a single board consisting of a processor core, memory, and other programmable peripherals. Microcontrollers are typically used in automatically controlled products and devices, such as automobile engine control systems, implanted medical devices, remote controls, and office machines.

Arduino is one of the most widely known and widely used open-source microcontroller boards. Our device, the Microduinom is as small as a quarter, which descreases the size and cost of design; just as powerful as the open-source Arduino board; compatible with Arduino; stackable through the U-shape 27-pin standard interface for ease of use; developed using completely open-source technology; and ideal for the hacker and maker community. The Microduino line is completely open, tailor made for the techie community, and gives users a variety of options. The Microduino line not only features the basic model, but comes in a performance model, a Bluetooth model, an OLED model, an SD card model, and many more. When it comes to technology, size does matter. Microduino: small in size but big on power.

Starting August 28, we will launch Microduino through Kickstarter. In the meantime, drop by our Facebook page and give Microduino a like at:
