Small size, great power! Microduino and mCookie bring powerful, small, stackable electronic hardware to makers, designers, engineers, students and curious tinkerers of all ages. Build open-source projects or create innovative new ones.
All Microduino and mCookie boards are Arduino-compatible. Experienced makers can write their own programs in the Arduino IDE and transmit their code to the hardware via USB, while novices can take advantage of open-source Scratch programming to drag and drop pre-written code.
Microduino dramatically decreases the size and cost of design prototyping, improves usability and flexibility of Arduino-compatible boards, and enhances the user experience for any age with different skill level.
Microduino and mCookie modules, sensors and accessories are typically applied in idea realization, prototype development, low-volume production and etc.
