The most talented BLE Arduino with Grove Connectors – LightBlue Bean+ is launched at Kickstarter this week for crowd funding. With four new Bluetooth Low Energy profiles, solderless connectors, 16 GPIOs, a rechargeable battery and enough range to program neighbor’s neighbor’s Beans, the Bean+ has become the latest addition to the LightBlue Bean family: a line of easy-to-use, wireless Arduinos. It can be wirelessly programmed from OS X, Windows, iOS and Android platforms.

The Bean+ comes with a built-in accelerometer, temperature sensor, RGB LED and a new amplifier. There are two Grove connectors (Analog and I2C, respectively) added for users to hook up with a variety of Grove sensors quickly and easily. There is also a Grove shield that adds 8 more. “We’re proud to see Grove connectors got adopted and excited to help build up the synergy.” Said Eric Pan, founder and CEO of Seeed Studio.
