Wireless made easy

Easily control anything from your phone or tablet via bluetooth.

The BLEduino

A tiny Arduino-Compatible development board with Bluetooth 4.0, a.k.a. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), built in.

Everything you know and love about Arduino, but with wireless. Fully compatible with Arduino shields and designed to work with the Arduino IDE.

Easily control your BLEduino via a simple mobile application. No need to be an expert. You can simply use the app or build your own using our libraries.

Effortlessly implement your project. We've abstracted all the nasty stuff so there's no rocket science involved. Unless you're building rockets of course!

Made for you

Versatile and unique, just like you. The BLEduino is breadboard compatible, tiny enough to fit in most enclosures, and compatible with standard Arduino shields when you combine it with our Shield-Shield accessory. For more details on the Shield-Shield or the BLEduino, visit our Kickstarter page.

Just one app

A single app with multiple applications. Rather than having a ton of examples fractured across different apps, we have all of our examples within one simple and elegant app. Each example, or as we call it, module, is fully expandable and powered by the BLEduino iOS library. You can build apps based on our modules or scrap the whole thing and just use our BLEduino library.

Completely open

Built with the community in mind, the BLEduino is as open as it gets.

All of our software, including the iPhone app, will be free and open source. We can't wait to see what you build!

Our schematics, board design, bill of materials, and firmware, will all be open source. We love open hardware and hope you do too.

The BLEduino is 100% community funded. We launched our kickstarter in June and already have 1000+ backers in our community.
