Little Wire is multi-featured USB controlled open source hardware tool packed in a minimal form factor designed by ihsan Kehribar. Even though it has minimal form factor, and packed with full of features, there aren’t any SMT components involved, therefore it is very suitable for beginners to assemble.
This tool has to take instructions at run-time over USB. It can’t work in a computer-less environment.
When i saw simpleavr’s implementation of usbtiny on attiny45 , i thought it would be cool if i make a kit version of this with a minimal form factor. Then i designed a PCB and sent for first prototype. Later on i thought, if i want to sell this, it would be much cooler ,and more suitable with “Open Source Hardware” concept, if i bring this project one step ahead. So i tried to fit anything extra to the device and this project came out.
We are giving away 2 Little Wire! Leave a comment on this post with an idea for a Little Wire project, and one of these could be yours on Thursday.
The Little Wire is available for $19.00 from Seeed Studio.
