Makers, developers and hobbyists that enjoy building projects using the Arduino platform might be interested in a new Arduino compatible gadget and development platform called Mono.
Mono has been designed to be the first open programmable gadget housed in a simple yet stylish and practical casing complete with a 2.2 inch TFT touchscreen display.
Features of Mono include an ARM Cortex-M3 processor together with a 3-Axis accelerometer, WiFi iEEE 802.11g and Bluetooth LE connectivity all powered by a rechargeable 420mAh battery. Its creators explain a little more about Mono.
“Calling makers: Are you also tired of spaghetti wiring and stranded projects? Do you need a platform to quickly test and share your ideas? Are you an Arduino or Rasperry Pi buff, who wants the same accessibility, but in a beautiful casing?
A warm welcome to our newest classmate: Mono – The first open programmable gadget in a handy case. Mono (referring to monotasking in case you were wondering) is a compact and inexpensive development device with long battery life, wifi, bluetooth and sensors. Mono is open source, supports the Arduino IDE and has an extendable hardware interface.
Mono sits comfortably between the too dumb single-purpose devices, such as alarm clocks and weather stations, currently occupying your home, and the smart devices, that are too big or expensive for certain tasks.”
