Pinoccio – An open source wireless hardware and software platform

Posted on Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 in Arduino, wireless by DP

Bryan pointed us to the Pinoccio. It’s an Arduino compatible Wireless platform. It’s based on the ATMega128rfa1 microcontroller with an 802.15.4 compliant radio built in. It also features a LiPo charger and battery, making it easy to recharge over USB. The project is open source and hosted on github.

    That’s pretty cool. Nice that it has a LiPol setup included. There are a few decent WIFI or Similar RF Wireless enabled Arduino compatible boards starting to make there way through.(The Ciseco XinoRF is one I have just got to use and help integrate into Ciseco’s promising EVE project which is due to start its Alpha phase soon – Also Kickstarter funded) Its with out a doubt the natural progression of the whole Arduino system.
    That’s going to be yet another Kickstarter campaign I am getting involved with for sure!

  2. Thanks for mentioning Pinoccio!

    Funny enough, the picture of the prototypes above was taken in a tiny coffee shop in Manhattan, a few hours before we did the NYC tech crawl with the Dangerous Prototypes crew during the Open Hardware Summit a couple months ago. We were walking all over Brooklyn looking for a pub, but ended up at Hall of Science instead. :)

    Holler if you have any questions, we’re happy to answer what we can.
