This next blog entry is for the “makers” in our audience; You know who you are. A Chelmsford-based startup is crowd funding their new uber tiny Arduino compatible device named “µduino.” How small is it exactly? Smaller than a microSD card at 12mm x 12mm! Thanks to it’s size, the µduino is a great building block for your next DIY drone project and at $18 it can fit into most project budgets.
With the increasing innovation in the field of the easy-to-program development boards, we are witnessing new components on such boards to add more functions. But, along with that, the electronics hardware innovators are also trying to reduce the overall size of the board and make everything smaller.
Thinking about something similar, a Chelmsford-based startup is running a crowdfunding campaign on Crowd Supply. Their product, µduino, is possibly the smallest Arduino board ever created. Talking specifically, the size of µduino measures just 12mmx12mm, which is smaller than a microSD card that has dimensions 11mmx15mm.
µduino can be used for building wearables and small-sized projects. As it works pretty well with sensors, one can use it in a quadcopter, GPG logging module, health monitors, etc.
