Makers, developers and hobbyists that enjoy creating projects using the Arduino platform may be interested in a new Arduino prototyping tool in the form of the Lumioto.
The Lumioto has been created by SCALAR Electronics to provide an easy way to add professional LED effects to your concepts, prototypes and projects. Watch the video below to learn more about this interesting new prototyping board.
The Arduino Prototyping Tool project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $2,500 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
“LEDs are everywhere and in everything, but quickly making one do what you want hasn’t gotten any easier. Even the very first steps, like controlling brightness or selecting colors, are filled with unexpected challenges. Things only get more difficult if you want to add animations. You’d think that making a tiny light blink would be among the easiest things in the world, but it can take all day. It can take days.
Almost every modern product, from space heaters to smartphones, contains at least one LED. Most have several LEDs. The same goes for DIY and personal projects. The only thing all these indicators and illuminators have in common is that someone somewhere had to decide their color, brightness, and behaviors, and it probably took a surprising amount of work to make those decisions. Lumioto helps by removing all the technical hurdles, and replaces them with a sophisticated palette that connects directly with your creativity.”
So if you think the Lumioto Arduino Prototyping Tool is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Lumioto become a reality via the link below.
