Introduction

Our "Beetle" series derives its core notion from minimalism without compromising functionality. Beetle aims to solve problems of low-cost controller, ease-of-using properly, and to provide a low cost solution for disposable projects, such as DIY projects, workshops, gift projects, E-Textiles and educational. For students and makers who can not afford too much on hardware purchasing, Beetle can be a great solution for them. 

This Bluno Beetle is another milestone in the Beetle line, which makes DIY users have more options in the project design. It is fully compatible with Bluno in instructions and procedures. Support Bluetooth HID and ibeacon modes.

It not only supports USB programming, but also wireless programming method. With the V shaped gilded I/O interface, it is convenient to screw conductor wire on it, which could a good choice in the wearable market.

    This is cute little board and designed to be more like the Lillypad boards for attaching to clothing. It has wide pads for clips ('wearable' tech is not yet 'washable' tech).

    One caveat is that the holes do not follow standard pitch for breadboards etc. looking at how people use Lillypad arduino boards with clips and conductive threads etc. might give some ideas.

    That said, the four corner holes (gnd and power) can be lined up with breadboard and I notice that this guy below has some good ideas how to set it up for breadboarding.

    Mine works fine with the free phone app, although I am still figuring out what to do with it. There are not many example projects out there specifically for the beetle yet but looking more generally at bluno and arduino projects will lead you to something you could adapt to your needs.

    a small and pleasing package for BLE projects with a wearable bent. (Posted on 9/03/2016)
