While i was searching on the internet a list on Arduino based projects on Kickstarter, i couldn´t find a good list… so i made one! at least the projects i really like.
If you feel there is a project missing, or would like your project to be promoted on the blog… contact us!
You’ve never seen an Arduino™ compatible like this. With a built-in OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode Display) you can see what your Arduino is thinking without having to connect it to your computer.
No more cryptic “Hello World” LED blink sequences or shoehorning oversized displays onto your tiny Arduino™. Development is much easier when you can see what’s going on.
The Spark Core is a complete Wi-Fi enabled development platform that allows users to create connected devices with ease. The Core is code-compatible with Arduino, which means you can use your existing Arduino code with the Core with little or no modifications.*
The Core has a built-in Wi-Fi module, a powerful 32-bit ARM microcontroller and 2MB of FLASH memory. You don’t need any additional hardware to get started. The Spark Core offers Over-The-Air firmware updates via it’s web based IDE, allowing the user to remotely write and transfer code to the Core, as well as a REST API provided through Spark’s free cloud service, the Spark Cloud. All you need is a web browser and an internet connection.
Flutter is a wireless electronics development platform based on Arduino. With over 3200ft (1km) of usable range, a powerful ARM processor, and integrated encryption, Flutter makes it easy for you to build projects that communicate across the house, across the neighborhood, and beyond.
Whether you want to check the temperature of a beer-brewing setup, have your mailbox send you a text message when the mailman arrives, control a swarm of flying robots, or just turn on your lights with your phone, Flutter gives you the range, power, and flexibility to do it.
The Smart Citizen Kit is an Open-Source platform that comprises 3 technological layers: a hardware device, a website and online API, and a mobile app. Below is an overview of them, and if you’re interested, all the gory details can be found on our website.
The first layer is a piece of hardware comprised by two printed-circuit boards: an interchangeable daughterboard or shield, and an arduino-compatible data-processing board. We have nicknamed the shield developed for this campaign ‘The Ambient Board.’ As the name suggests, it carries sensors that measure air composition (CO and NO2), temperature, light intensity, sound levels, and humidity. Once it’s set up, the ambient board is able to stream data measured by the sensors over Wi-Fi using the FCC-certified, wireless module on the data-processing board. The device’s low power consumption allows for placing it on balconies and windowsills. Power to the device can be provided by a solar panel and/or battery.
The BLEduino is a tiny Arduino-Compatible development board with Bluetooth 4.0, a.k.a. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), built in. The BLEduino is both hardware and software compatible with Arduino since it’s based on the Arduino Leonardo. Anything that runs on an Arduino will run on a BLEduino. It’s the easiest way to get Bluetooth 4.0 in your project! Control anything from your phone!
We set out to build a little brother to the wonderful Arduino line of development boards – we were tired of leaving our valuable Arduino’s behind in projects, or worse, ripping apart old projects to build new ones! We also felt the Arduino was too big and powerful for many projects where we only needed a few pins, or an SPI or I2C bus. And so the Digispark was born! To us, the best things about the Arduino is the community, the easy of use, and the IDE – by making the Digispark an Arduino compatible development board all of those remain common. Plug it in, power your project with USB or external sources, program it with the Arduino IDE, and easily use existing Arduino code! But with its small size and low cost you can feel free to leave it in your project, give one to a friend, and use them everywhere!
The energyShield is a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery in the form of an Arduino shield (Uno/Leonardo Compatible). It has three main internal functions including a circuit to boost the battery’s nominal voltage of 3.7V to 5V; a lithium-polymer battery charging circuit; and an on-board fuel gauge IC which allows for the measurement of battery voltage, current, and accumulated charge by means of a Two-Wire Interface (TWI/I2C).
CONTROLLINO is a professional PLC for private and industrial use. A solid hardware build around Atmel’s ATmega328 and the ATmega2560 microcontrollers, ready to run with your ARDUINO projects.via: Kickstarter
Cheap robots for everyone! The idea behind ArcBotics is to become the Ikea of robotics. Provide functional, minimalistic robots with step-by-step instruction that anyone can make, lowering cost as much as possible in the process. Hexy is the first robot a line of many that aims to enable low-cost, easy access to easily modifiable and expandable robots, for everyone from the learning student to the high-end researcher.
The Linkbot is a modular robotic packed with technology and ready to bring your project from idea to working prototype. It’s easy to get started with these built-in modes.
Just because it’s easy to use out of the box doesn’t mean you’re limited in what you can do. A wide range of technology will engage the most advanced hackers and makers. The brain is an Arduino compatible ATmega128RFA1 by Atmel, running at 16MHz. It integrates an 8-bit AVR microcontroller with an 802.15.4-compliant and ZigBee-capable radio transceiver operating in the 2.4GHz band.
L8 connects via bluetooth to your smartphone to displays by light codes everything that happens through the internet and in your life.
L8 is a battery powered mini squared lamp with a multicolor 64 Led matrix on one side and a multicolor super bright Led on the other and several useful sensors, that connects via bluetooth to your smartphone to notify you by light images or animations of just about anything that happens on the Internet: Twitter and Facebook messages, e-mails, game results, outside temperature…. in other words, If exists… it can shine in L8.
We love Arduino and we love space exploration. So we decided to combine them and let people run their own space experiments!
We want to get you into space! Once launched, the ArduSat (Arduino – satellite) will be the first open platform allowing the general public to design and run their own space-based applications, games and experiments, and steer the onboard cameras to take pictures on-demand..
By supporting the project you’re not only reserving your place at a discounted price at the front of the line to use it once it’s in space, but you’re helping us develop a platform to make space access affordable and achievable for anyone.
uArm is an Arduino-powered desktop 4-axis parallel-mechanism robot arm, modeled after the ABB industrial PalletPack robot.
It is made up of laser cut acrylic or wood parts, powered by standard RC hobby servos, and controlled by an Arduino-compatible board. In parallel-mechanism robot arm, most of the masses concentrate on the base, making the robot much more stable and allows the upper Arm to react really fast.
- AttoDuino - Turbocharged, Wireless, Arduino Compatible It's like an Arduino on steroids – built-in bluetooth, battery management, and floating-point coprocessor, in a small, simple package. We love Arduino. But we wanted more power. So, we created the AttoDuino. It's Arduino compatible, but with a lot more power. Basically, it's like…
