Developers and makers that enjoy building projects using the Arduino platform, may be interested in a new pocket sized Arduino development board called the MangoCube which has been created by Bhargav Mistry based in the UK.
The Arduino compatible MangoCube development board is a tiny ATmega32U4 board that is available in three different versions a MangoCube LEO, MangoCube BLE (Bluetooth 4.0) and MangoCube WiFi. Watch the video below to learn more about the three variations from their creator.
The MangoCube Arduino development board has been created to provide developers with a pocket sized, Arduino compatible, stackable header with ATmega32U4 micro controller together with a selection of colourful cases. Mistry explains :
“MangoCube comes in hard shell ABS case. There are 5 different colours to choose from. You can select one of the colours which suit your personality. Apart from case giving aesthetically great look, it protects the core board from surrounding. The case makes it easy to carry. MangoCube’s case also packed with some cool features like holes for Lanyard, Keychain and mounting on uneven surfaces.
One of the great features of MangoCube is that this small case can contain a Bluetooth or a WiFi board. This extra functionality of wireless communication makes MangoCube a perfect choice for your portable or wireless project!
MangoCube family can be used as General purpose Micro controller or for a specific application. It can be powered by a USB through PC/ Laptop or through external 5V batteries. It is highly recommended to use 5V regulated external batteries (Li-ion or Li-Poly). Please check bellow for application can be made by MangoCube family.”
The MangoCube Arduino development board is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise £3,000 in pledges, so if you think MangoCube is something your Arduino projects could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to be one of the first to own one with pledges starting from £10.
