Teagueduino: making things really simple

A brief intro:

We love making interactive things and want to help more people join in the fun!
Teagueduino is an open source electronic board and interface that allows you to realize creative ideas without soldering or knowing how to code, while teaching you the basics of programming and embedded development (like arduino). Teagueduino is designed to help you discover your inner techno-geek and embrace the awesomeness of making things in realtime — even if you’ve only ever programmed your VCR.
Teagueduino is designed to for 3 key areas:
1. make making things really simple.
2. make learning about electronics and programming intuitive.
3. make teaching engaging and exploratory.

Teagueduino makes learning about electronics and programming intuitive.

Beginners can jump in without needing to know how to solder or write code. Of course, there’s still lots of room to grow and we’re working hard to make the transition to more advanced topics as easy as possible.

For those interested in learning how to work with electronics, there will be step-by-step tutorials for wiring up custom sensors and outputs. If writing software is more your thing, there will be arduino project templates to help you migrate to working directly in C.  And for the truly advanced, the main control board (Teensy++) can be popped off the the Teagueduino board for full-out embedded development.

Technical Details

Each board has 5 inputs and 5 outputs, and a full kit comes with a variety of each (knobs, buttons, speakers, lights, servos, and more). These can be easily combined in countless ways and programmed using the Teagueduino software and then shared with the community to use and build on.

Teagueduino on Kickstarter 

Kickstarter is a great way to bring Teagueduino to life because it focuses on getting the community involved from day one.

Making an ecosystem of boards and software is expensive. To bring the price down, we need to reach a minimum production budget and make Teagueduino at a larger scale than we have so far. The goal of $22k ensures that we’ll be able to produce kits with a variety of components that make creating things fun right out of the box.
