Modulo Modular Programmable Electronics: Slidestorms

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen programmable electronics that use magnets or Bluetooth instead of wires and solder to connect its parts. But those kits are mainly meant for beginners, and are not as powerful or versatile as more advanced computers such as the Raspberry Pi or Arduino boards. Modulo Labs has developed a middle ground in the form of Modulo, a modular development board.

Like the aforementioned beginner kits, Modulo does away with soldering thanks to modules that simply slide into a base circuit board. The base board has slots for up to four interchangeable modules; there’s also a variant that has room for a Spark controller in addition to the modules.

These modules are advanced enough for complex projects. For instance, the microcontroller module is Arduino compatible and has six i/O ports. The whole system also integrates easily with single board computers, and you can daisy chain multiple Modulo boards.

Snap into Kickstarter and pledge at least $69 (USD) to get a Modulo kit as a reward.
