Makers, hobbyists and developers that are looking for an easy way to prototype their Arduino projects and creations, might be interested in a new piece of hardware called the tinylab.
tinylab has been created to provide a tablet size development board that is equipped with a wide variety of different modules which are shown in the diagram above. Reducing the time it take to create Arduino projects and making it easier to learn more about the important elements of the platform.
The creators of the tinylab explains more :
Arduino is our hero, we mostly design around it and we realized that we use some common components with it generally. Every time, we need to make same circuits to display, send or sense something. Using a breadboard turns a torture and using stackable shields doesn’t serve the purpose generally. You need more than three shields but you can’t stack more them together due to pin overlaps.
So we think the Tinylab can be the painkiller. So we designed it, used it and love it. So we decided to share it to others. Also, it’s perfect for education. Because it’s compatible with MIT’s Scratch we think it can take place in school laboratories.
Combine all this thing and make your own recipe easily. All of the things are onboard excluding wireless features. They are attachable modules. There are sockets for them on board. Is there a need to communicate something, just attach and code it! All the other things the board doesn’t include, there is a tiny breadboard. Disable the connection of pins of onboard Arduino you need, connect them with jumper cables to the breadboard and rock’n roll.
tinylab is now available to back with pledges starting from just $59 with worldwide shipping included. Jump over to the indiegogo website via the link below for more information
