Makers, developers and hobbyists that are planning to create electronic projects that require custom lighting solutions may be interested in a new Arduino compatible development board called the TinyGlo+.
TinyGlo+ has been developed by JACK Enterprises and has taken to Kickstarter to raise the required funds to make the jump into production.
Watch the video below to learn more about this Arduino compatible palm size development board that can be used for portable all wearable devices. Its creator explains more :
TinyGlo+ is a custom lighting solution for use in numerous projects. Let your mind go wild with three programmable full color LEDs that are very powerful. Using an optional battery, make it portable or wearable. Add on a microphone to make dancing lights or be the star of the rave with a custom bright LED solution. Your imagination is the only limit. With a low cost, leave TinyGlo+ in your project or combine many of them for a dramatic custom lighting feature. Since TinyGlo+ is Arduino compatible, programming it for your application couldn’t be easier.
TinyGlo+ builds upon the success of the original TinyGlo project, which put on a firefly like light show. With this new generation, many new features have been added including a larger microprocessor, more lights, full color, expandable battery capability, many expansion pins for external applications and the ability to reprogram it easily. All of the original features are also retained including the ambient light sensing capability.
TinyGlo+ is a great platform for learning with integrated features that allow the beginner to realize results quickly for multiple applications and comes with several examples. You can also expand the capabilities by adding on external components with the standard SPI, I2C, analog, digital and serial interfaces.
Jump over to the Kickstarter crowdfunding website to make a pledge from just $7 to be one of the very first to get your hands on the Arduino development board. If you making Arduino projects you may enjoy building your very own Arduino wind speed meter that requires just basic Arduino skills.
