UDOO Neo is on Kickstarter: get the $35 or $45 Early Bird NOW!

Something truly exciting is happening right now: UDOO Neo Campaign is LIVE on Kickstarter!
NEO embodies the same Linux\Android + Arduino™ philosophy into the Wireless and IoT world. It merges the 2 distinct processors into one, featuring integrated Wi-Fi + BT 4.0 and motion sensors. All of this with less power comsumption and a starting price of 49 USD.

The campaign is live since 10 minutes, and our Early Bird offers are going like hot cakes: Early Bird UDOO Neo Basic for $35 and Early Bird UDOO Neo for $45. So hurry up! Back the project and help us spread the word: tell your friends and colleagues, blab it to everyone, confess: UDOO Neo is out! The 9th of April we blew out our second candle, and here we are, back to where it all began. So what are you waiting for? Click the link, jump on board, back the project! Tweet it on Twitter, shout it from the roof! Make UDOO Neo the single board computer of the Post-PC Era!

Back UDOO Neo on Kickstarter!

    Turn your UDOO (or UDOO Neo) into an oscilloscope with VIPER

Turn your UDOO (or UDOO Neo) into an oscilloscope with VIPER

Hi UDOOers,
as you may remember, Viper is a cross-platform development suite for high-level design of interactive objects. Just with ToiShield and Viper – and obviously UDOO or UDOO Neo – you get an easier way to start making.
For those of you who may have missed the post, thanks to Viper you can program with a browser-based no-installation-required development environment compatible with Mac, Linux or Windows your Arduino (regardless it is Arduino DUE or any compatible microcontroller or single board computer like Spark Photon-Core-Electron, UDOO or UDOO Neo in Python) and run it on any Arduino-compatible board. This is expecially useful if you are going to develop a solution for several ARM architectures and you just want to program once.
Today we are going to show you how to “viperize” UDOO. What does it mean? The heart of the Viper experience is the Viper Virtual Machine. Just by installing the Viper Virtual Machine on your board, the board is “viperized” and has a multithreaded real-time operating system running on it, which makes your board able to execute Python 3 scripts. Are you curious to see how it works?

Through the Viper App you’ll then easily discover all the Viper devices in your network, and control it through the interface of the Viper App. An oscilloscope is an expensive tool, which may cost even thousand of dollars, and it’s great to see it done just with UDOO + Viper + only 39 lines of Python code! Toishield is a great expansion shield for UDOO and UDOO Neo, just for all the works it does for you! And if you are moving your first steps in the Maker community Python is a simple language to start [...]

UDOO Neo coming soon on Kickstarter!

Hi UDOOers,
these days we have been submerged by requests regarding UDOO Neo. When will it be available? How much will it cost? And so on. You are very curious about the new board, and we have a lot of expectations too, so we thought about the best way to deliver a brilliant product which fits the needs of the community.

UDOO Neo will be on Kickstarter soon, the dice is cast.
Kickstarter has been the place where we moved our first steps, and we see it as a sparkling platform to crowdfund and even crowdsource a project. The spirit of the community is the launching pad of each innovative project on Kickstarter, and we trust in you guys, as the beating heart of UDOO, for project-ideas, suggestions and tips. You can start right now, commenting this post! To answer your questions, regardless we already announced UDOO Neo, we rely on Kickstarter as a necessary boost keep a low price on the launch and even after. UDOO Neo is the perfect platform for a student to start tinkering with Arduino, Linux or Android: help us make it real, help us make UDOO Neo accessible to everyone around the world.
We are looking forward the date of the launch, and in the meanwhile we are preparing some surprises for you. The pricing will be top secret until the very moment of the launch, which is settled in April.

If you want to be the first to support us, you’ll be happy to know there will be an Early Bird to reward our early adopters. We suggest you to take a look at the Kickstarter alert we prepared for you.

In a matter of two or three weeks we’ll [...]

    Support Viper on Kickstarter, the Python IoT design suite for UDOO, Arduino and Spark

Support Viper on Kickstarter, the Python IoT design suite for UDOO, Arduino and Spark

Hi UDOOers,
today we’d like to spend a few words on a sparkling project of our friends of #Toi, ThingsOnInternet, that we first met at the RIOT Internet Festival last year in Pisa – and it has been a good idea indeed to take part to #RIOT, given that from that starting point BETaaS and Viper, two brilliant ideas UDOO-based or UDOO-supporting, have sprung. Viper moreover is already gaining a small (but remarkable, considering the timing) success in Italy – where the founders come from – with a coverage by Wired and Corriere della Sera! How could we avoid to make a post about it?

So, what is Viper?

First of all, let’s take a look at the cute Viper video on Kickstarter!

Viper is a cross-platform development suite for the high level design of interactive objects, which allows the developers to create in Python for Arduino DUE, UDOO, UDOO Neo, Spark Core and Photon and similar boards.

VIPER = Viper Is Python Embedded in Realtime.

If you are a developer, VIPER will give you a browser-based, zero-install development environment – the Viper IDE – compatible with Linux, Windows and Mac where you can write Python code with extensive library support and have it executed on any Arduino-compatible board.

This way you can forget the complexity of coding and just focus on the functionalities you want to put into the smart object you got in mind.

And there’s even more. The Toi Team will provide a Viper App, which is part of the suite, to control your creations. Once launched the VIPER App will discover all the VIPER devices available on your network. Once one of them will be selected the App will become its interface. The VIPER App [...]

Update your UDOO asap!

This update applies to all the backers who pledged for the kits with the pre-loaded micro SD cards and for those who have already created and or updated their bootable micro SD cards.

UDOO Camera!

Hi everybody!

Today we tried out the UDOO’s camera with Android!

It’s a CSI camera module, 5Mpx with autofocus, connected to the dedicated UDOO’s camera connector. Android recognize the camera with no problem and we were able to use the default Android camera app.

At the moment the camera isn’t available for purchase, but it will, don’t worry!

UDOO shipment progress

Hi guys,

We know you’re all pretty excited the get your hands on UDOO, here a shipment update about how it is going:

190 UDOOs Dual have left the factory for the United States, unfortunately we had troubles at customs which delayed deliveries. Don’t worry, the Duals will be on their way to you soon.
200 UDOOs Quad have left the factory as well, no problem with this second stock.
Starting from next week, we’ll be able to finalize and ship bigger quantities and the Kickstarter fulfillment should proceed smoothly then, for Dual and Quad both.
