Microduino mCookies, Arduino LEGO-compatible modules. Everyone will be a child again!
If there’s one trend that is continuing to evolve throughout the Maker Movement, it’s modularity. DIYers are constantly seeking expedited and efficient ways to piece together their projects, all while bringing their ideas to life without the hassles of soldering and wiring messes. Joining the likes of littleBits, Modulo and even the latest product from Arduino, Modulino, the Microduino crew has launched Microduino mCookie, a small, stackable electronic hardware kit for designers, engineers and curious tinkerers of any age and skill set.
You may recall their first Kickstarter campaign from back in September 2013. The next-generation of Microduino consists of quarter-sized hardware components inspired by the incredibly popular Arduino platform that not only connect magnetically, but can be built into predesigned projects or used to innovate new ones as well. Each open-source module is color-coded and is designed to be stacked on top of a main processor to perform one core function — whether that’s expanding Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities, GPS and sensor hubs, audio and battery management, or a core USB.
There are three microcontroller modules in the mCookie series, all of which powered by Atmel. The mCookie-CoreUSB is built around the ATmega32U4, while the mCookie-Core and Core+ are driven by an ATmega328P and ATmega644PA, respectively.
