An Open-Source Environmental Monitoring Platform consisting of arduino-compatible hardware, data visualization web API, and mobile app.
This is a breakout board for the WS2812 RGB LED, a smart RGB LED with an embedded constant-current LED driver (WS2811) that uses a single Data Input line to control brightness and color of its 3 LEDs.
In its tiny 5mm x 5mm package, the WS2812 includes 3 super bright LEDs (Red, Green, and Blue) and a compact driver circuit (WS2811) that only requires one data input to control the state, brightness, and color of the 3 LEDs.
This kit includes everything needed for assembling a monophonic synthesizer powered by an ATmega328 microcontroller. The audio is generated using Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS).
This is a breadboard-friendly, breakout board for the RN52 Bluetooth Audio Module, a small form-factor, fully integrated solution for delivering high-quality stereo audio over a Bluettooth connection.
The ultimate, flexible, weatherproof strip of WS2812 RGB smart LEDs. This high-density version offers 60 LEDs per meter, and each of them can be individually controlled. These strips can easily be cut to any length!
The ultimate, flexible, weatherproof strip of WS2812 RGB smart LEDs. This standard-density version offers 30 LEDs per meter, and each of them can be individually controlled. These strips can easily be cut to any length!
These flexi-strips are without a doubt the most convenient, cost-effective option for using the WS2812 RGB LEDs in any lighting project. They can be easily cut down to a 1-LED piece, or interconnected to form a lengthy, continuous strip. Each strip includes a 3-Pin JST connector Male/Female pair, and silicone end caps that tightly seal the IP65 waterproof rated strip. Each WS2812 on the strip includes 3 super bright LEDs (Red, Green, and Blue) and an embedded driver circuit (WS2811) that only requires one data input to control the brightness and color of the 3 LEDs.
While we wait for the Smart Citizen boards to be manufactured and assembled, we are taking some time to work on other projects. Atop the endless list of things we'd like to get done is our tutorials page. While we get everything to our liking on our site, we are using the awesome platform Instructables.com for hosting the documentation. For instance, we made a guide for how to use the RGB LED WS2812 breakout boards for adding smart LEDs to any project with minimal hassle (http://www.instructables.com/id/Best-RGB-LEDs-for-any-project-WS2812/).
Our very first Kickstarter campaign has ended and we are one happy team! We've achieved our funding goal (and then some (:-) to continue developing the Smart Citizen Kit. We want to express our immense gratitude to our supporters, and get to work right away for fulfilling the rewards in a timely manner. This goes beyond the funding; when a few of us we embarked on this adventure 3 years ago with a couple of Arduinos and a $500 budget, it was impossible to imagine that we would build something that people would embrace as you have!
Through a collaboration with Fab Lab Barcelona, we've put together our first Kickstarter campaign. The awesome folks from Kickstarter have reviewed and approved our proposed project, so the campaign is now live and kicking! Our goal is to raise at least $50,000 to continue the full-scale production of the hardware for the Smart Citizen project, as well as further develop the online, data-visualization platform, and finish the enclosure and mobile app.
It's official (we have all the paperwork to prove it (:-)! After a couple of months of planning, we can finally announce that Acrobotic Industries LLC is open for business! For now, you can meet our tiny-but-hardworking team. Don't forget to check back from time to time to see what neat devices we've been crafting in our shop. We are avid social medialites (is that even a word?), so feel encouraged to follow us on any of the social networking platforms listed at the top of the page. Amidst a whirl of emotions, we set sail for the first time on the 'startup sea'. Wish us luck while we undertake this exciting new venture!
