I like to build software.

Bluetooth Smart Electronics Prototyping


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!

Bluetooth Low Energy Shield for Arduino

The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Shield for Arduino is intended for makers to connect an Arduino project to Bluetooth Smart Ready devices such as the iPhone 4S. At this time there are some solutions available on the market to connect an iPhone to hardware projects, such as the headphone jack, Wifi or a serial cable connected to the 30-pin connector.

This shield will allow you to connect to your Arduino project wirelessly.

Galago: tiny rapid electronics prototyping

A new electronics prototyping alternative to Arduino. It features a powerful ARM chip and built-in debugger. The Galago itself will fit on a standard breadboard.

The Galago kickstarter campaign raised $73,383, more than twice it’s initial goal. Stretch goals include new expansion ‘app boards’. Unfortunately not enough money was raised for a BLE app board to be included. However all boards are confirmed to be available for sale in the future.
