Makers and developers looking for a new open source BLE Arduino board to help expand their projects with smartphone control might be interested in a new board called the Tah.
Tah is an open source, Arduino-compatible Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) platform for use as a beacon, micro controller, and HID device that allows you to control anything from your smartphone. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Tah project and see it in action.
Tah is equipped with a ATmega32U4 micro controller and 32KB of flash storage (4KB reserved for the bootloader) 6 analog I/O pins and 12 digital I/O pins (7 of which usable as PWM), SPI and I2C peripherals, the Tah Arduino board supports ranges from 10 to 100ft. Its creators explain :
“With the power and flexibility of Tah, it’s now easier than ever to connect your smart devices to everything around you! Tah is an open source development board that helps you create your own projects that can connect to your smart phone, laptop, or desktop via Bluetooth low energy. Its frugal power requirements and onboard USB open up a wide array of applications that weren’t previously possible.
This powerful combination allows Arduino applications to be controlled directly using your smartphone — your phone’s built-in accelerometer, gyroscope, and other sensors can directly trigger events in the physical world!”
The Tah project is currently over on the Crowd Supply crowd funding website looking to raise $25,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
