GROVE Starter Bundle [Alpha]! Can’t live without a logo…

Now you know our next generation Electronic Brick system will be called: GROVE. GROVE is an open modular toolset, designed to minimize the difficulty of fundamental electronic engineering. It is formed by functional modules TWIG and interface board STEM. Each TWIG has unified 4pin interface and standardized jigsaw shape for easy combination. They can work with major existing development platform (like Arduino and compatible boards, beagle board, Xbee, and etc) via STEMs.

Community based – satisfying needs through voting, democratized design, project and recipe sharing, profit sharing business pattern, Renting and Reuse.


Sprout mode: Cluster, Jigsaw, Blade (Developing)

Grove System is our new baby and we want to add a nice logo on it. So there is your chance! If you have the skill, why not design a logo for us?

The LOGO will be printed on every board belongs to GROVE system, in silk screen.


Logo design must:

• Be equally presentable in small format uses (e.g., letterhead and publications)
and large format uses (e.g., banners and presentations);
• Be printable in colour and in black and white;
• Not produce trademark problems due to potential similarities to existing trademarked material.
You can submit your design by sending mail to fan(at) before 31th October,   Submissions must be in high‐resolution JPG and/or PSD, CDR, AI etc… format.
As a award, we will give 1X Grove Starter bundle to the 1st winner, we will also add him to our VIP list so he/she can always buy our products with discounts.
Other participators will also have chance to get GIFTs from SEEED.
Please feel free to leave any suggestions in comment, thanks.

  1. Thanks for the followup on jigsaw mode. One concern I have is that solder, by itself, is not well suited to handling mechanical stress. Bridging the boards together would be fine for doing a prototype or short term project, but I don’t think I would depend on it over the long term. I’ve chased more than a few cold solder joints in my career and they have to be one of the hardest problems to solve, in my experience.

    Not sure if my design has been received, didn’t got a notification but I guess its all fine since it wasn’t bounced. Anyway, exiting for the drawing :D .

    Sorry for didn’t notify you. We’ve received a lot designs, your should be included. The result will be published in recent 2 days. Thanks!

  4. I have been assuming you can solder bridge the boards together it you want a permanent connection. From the latest pictures you can clearly cable them as well. Only certain types of boards would make sense to chain. I also assume a puzzle like shallow plate with pins or edges could hold a jigsaw like configuration together.

  5. For “JigSaw mode”, I’m a bit unclear on what’s keeping those modules together. There doesn’t appear to be any way to mount the modules to a case (without using epoxy or something similar). What’s going to keep the modules together so I don’t have a bunch of circuits banging into each other, possibly creating short circuits or other problems?

    I’ve been following the posts on Grove with interest, but it looks like it would be nightmare to work with without some way to solve this problem. The Arduino handles this issue nicely due to it’s stacking nature and the fact that it does have a set of holes in the board for mounting.

  6. Can’t wait. Will you have the pressure sensor like the film unit? I will have to try for a logo, but I am not skilled here.
