This Kickstarter Project is for a smarter Arduino thanks to a 4.3" touch screen TFT display, speaker, battery, SD card socket, XBee socket and more, in a smart designer case.
Springville, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/31/2014 -- The ultimate gadget for not only geeks but hobbyists of every stripe, Arduino is a tool for making specialized small computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than conventional desktop computers. Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a basic circuit board coupled with a development environment for writing software to drive what Arduino does.
Cool right? Better than cool, it's uniquely able to fulfill almost any gadget-fan's fantasy for very little money and a little bit of coding, all supported by the biggest tech community on the web. Original Design & Development saw something missing in this otherwise elegant tech model; aesthetics. Should Arduino look like it fell out of a five story window and smashed on the sidewalk? Actual project implementation can be more than a little challenging with parts and components spread across a table to make the whole model work. Good impressions being what they are, the technically disinclined won't be very impressed by even the latest technical innovation if it's not packaged in a sleek case.
The solution to these shortcomings? Take everything that's amazing about the Arduino and make it epic. How? The talented Original Design & Development design team put this incredible technology into an eye-pleasing plastic case, slapped on a 4.3 inch touch screen and made it handheld, or wall-mountable if so desired. Omnuino is the next evolutionary step for the Arduino.
Much more than an Italian-designed casing and state-of-the-art touch screen, Omnuino also boasts an awesome FT800 display controller for cool gaming, a Micro SD card socket (for images, game resources, audio files, etc), a speaker, a 3-axis accelerometer, a LiPo battery, battery charger, indicator led's, IR emitter and receiver for all kinds of remote control possibilities. Last, but by no means least, an XBee socket (Zigbee, ?IEEE 802.15.4, WiFi, Bluetooth, and Cellular) for limitless communication flexibility.
What can all this impressive technology in the Omnuino do? Almost anything anyone ever imagined they can do with technology including the creation of a smart home controller, thermostat, weather station, digital picture frame, digital guitar, alarm clock, social media monitor, GPS display, game machine, a portable oscilloscope and even a portable ECG / heart rate monitor among a myriad of other possibilities.
This crowdfunding campaign ends January 23, 2015.
