Once upon a time we dreamed of something shiny and blinky to hang from our keychain. However being the nerds that we are we wanted something that could also be programmed with exposed IOs for our next big idea. And that’s how the idea for mBuino got started.
But wait, what’s mBuino? mBuino is a keychain sized programmable circuit board that hosts an ARM® Cortex™ 50Mhz microcontroller with a pinout allowing you access to common busses such as SPI, UART, I2C, Analog, PWM and USB.
Programming the mBuino is very easy as there is no software to install, you only need access to a modern web browser thanks to the mbed platform and tools, read more at http://mbed.org/handbook/mbed-HDK .
mBuino is currently on Kickstarter, please visit Kickstarter for specific details or to show your support for the mBuino and its platform. Once the Kickstarter compaign has been funded and come to a close, we will be offering mBuino for sale on OutrageousCircuits.com.
But wait, what’s OutrageousCircuits.com? OutrageousCircuits was created by some of the engineers at GHI Electronics to share their passion for electronics by creating cheap, fun and outrageous circuits. GHI Electronics has graciously allowed these products to be built and orders to be fulfilled through the GHI production and distribution center.
