Introducing a new project - GadgetBox!

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, I'm working on a new product line for GadgetFactory that might you might find interesting. It's called GadgetBox and in a nutshell it is an Arduino that solves the shield stacking problem and fits into a nice sleek case. There are eCogs - which are like Wings - that form the top of the case when they are plugged into the board.

Don't get me wrong, I love FPGAs but sometimes they are just too expensive for simple things. GadgtBox is meant to take a proven and affordable platform, the Arduino Leonardo, and do some innovations that will hopefully solve the problems people have with it. The biggest problem I see is shield stacking and the ugly mess of wires/pcbs that you end up with when you make something with it! GadgetBox is going to be super inexpensive - hopefully less then $20 and result in an IoT device you won't hesitate to deploy in your house.

Hello,

Working out the manufacturing, funding, and bringing it to market has been a challenge so far. Right now I have some eCogs and the Arduino Pro Mini version available at the Gadget Factory store. I also have enough boards to sell the NodeMCU version as well but do not have it in the store yet due to the documentation not being done yet. If you have a project in mind and would like a board just let me know.

Jack.
