MeU

MeU is an innovative, completely open source technology and wearable LED which is a great way to display customized messages. These LED panels are controlled using a smart phone. It is as simple as sending a tweet. You can also program custom content by yourself. MeU can be used to provide company’s message or logo in an attractive way, guide a group your or large hike and the possibilities are endless. It can also be programmed to display your mood.

The team of MeU has nailed down its design and prototype. They want to raise funds to make their first batch of developer kits a reality. The developer kit of MeU includes

  • MeU Square Panel
  • Rechargeable battery
  • Micro USB cable for recharging and programming
  • Hook and loop to attach into clothing (will include regular, tape and/or iron-on for various applications and clothing)
  • MeU Demo Mobile App (iOS and Android only)
  • Instruction documentation

MeU is one of the best ways to broadcast brand messages for marketers and advertisers.

Just a quick post, as wanted to get this free and open source hardware and software project out there, before it closes.

One comment though… I would have liked to have seen this with an ethernet connector on the back of it, to help reduce the RF radiation we all bath in. This is more important now I have a newborn.

The engineers and innovators of Microduino Studio released a new gamepad in respect of the Nintendo Gameboy’s 25the anniversary. The company had launched the popular Microduino Arduino compatible development board last year which has successfully backed over Kickstarter crowd funding website. Now they have come up with new Microduino-Joypad in the form of an open source game console.

The team behind the creation of Microduino explains that the new open source game console is equipped with Microduino TFT Jack, OLED Jack, Panel Jack and Microduino UPin-27 Jack and more. The device is compatible with over 30 Microduino modules. It is also a remote control device, making it more creative and functional. Microduino-Joypad can remotely control plenty of toys and devices such as quadcopters, TV games, BOXZ Mini Robot, PC Game Collection and others.

The best part with Microduino-Joypad is that players can develop their own games according to their preferences. Now Microduino Studio is seeking further funding to secure their supply chain. Want to back this project? Watch this video before pledging this campaign.
