DIY Miniature and Wearable Electronics, on Indiegogo now!

Great DIY wearable project on Indiegogo now, 36 days left. Let’s help them reaching the target!

We love electronics, especially Wearables, and that is why we have made super cool modules that include heart rate detection, movement, non contact temperature sensing, and ultraviolet (UV), infra-red (IR), and light sensing technology. We are also one of the first in the world to have combined our modules with a variety of open source 3d printed cases, which will take your projects to a whole new level!

Almost everything is open source so that you can easily create your own modules and 3d cases, meaning everything is completely adaptable and reconfigurable. We will even be releasing tutorials on how to create your own!

These are some of the smallest modules on the market, measuring less than 2cm X 2cm (0.79″ X 0.79″), and so are perfect for miniature and wearable projects. We have also chosen some of most interesting sensors we could find, from heart rate sensing to measuring temperature at a distance. The addition of the RFDuino Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module and the OLED screen gives you so many possible options for your projects!


Every module can be connected to almost any microcontroller, such as Arduino’s, PIC’s, Mbeds and so many more! This is because each module uses I2C for communication, which is super easy and only uses 2 pins (SDA & SCL)plus the standard power and ground pins, so we are calling this series EZ-I2C (i.e.Easy I2C). This allows us to make the modules as small as possible, and yet still be able to attach them in hundreds of different configurations. The MiniWear modules have 6 pins in total, the 2 required for I2C, 1 Ground, 1 Power, 1 extra general purpose pin that we have  labelled  LPW in case of extra Low PoWer modes (but it can be used for anything). We also have a BAT pin, which batteries are attached to so that we can add multiple  batteries, regulate their power centrally, switch them all on/off, and recharge them all at the same time. It also opens up the possibility for alternative power modules in the future.
