Wow, wow, wow… B-Squares are finally coming. Couple months ago, this project blew up the Kickstarter and created a 580% funded record. Totally, 1110 people have backed the project. After a long-time waiting, those early guys will get their packages sometime next month. What about the other who missed the opportunity on Kickstarter? Don’t worry! You can now get this neat product at Seeed Studio.
Basically, B-Squares is a 3D modular electronics system with an emphasis on solar power and expandable energy storage, enabling the hobbyist to prototype clean-tech and Arduino inventions faster than ever before.
The Squares have magnetic contacts on each corner which allow them to easily snap together without wires. These magnetic contacts are also used to transmit electric signals between the Squares. This design allows users to quickly assemble Squares into arrays, with power flowing through the array, without wiring or soldering. There’re six different functional squares, including Battery-Square, Solar-Square, LED-Square, Proto-Square, Arduino-Square, and Dock-Square.
We currently offer 4 different types of pre order.
B-ginner’s Kit (including 1x Battery-Square, 1x Solar-Square, and 1x LED-Square)
Developer’s Kit (including 1x Battery-Square, 1x Solar-Square, 1x LED-Square, 1x Proto-Square, and 1x Arduino-Square)
All these pre orders will start shipping at mid-October, 2011.
