Now you can make fully functional projects with much smaller board at half the price. V2 even has an on board power regulator.
“How many Arduinos or other microcontroller projects have you done that you now use in your day-to-day life? The answer was sadly few. This is something I’d like to see change…” - Gareth Branwyn on Makezine.com
I'd like to see it change too. That's what the ExtraCore is all about. Giving you a cost effective and space efficient alternative to full on development boards.
Over 600 ExtraCores were purchased by makers just like you last year and the ExtraCore Facebook Page has over 500 followers. Arduino is very popular on Instructables with millions of mentions. The Arduino channel has 850+ projects with Arduino in the title alone. All these people are making some really cool stuff but most of them look like a wire factory puked on a pile of electronics. We can do better.
Buy an ExtraCore now and make your project permanent.
It depends on how many pre-orders there are. If there are enough I have outside investors who might commit to funding a production run. We need to get the number of pre-orders as high as possible. Of course my preference is to make the goal.
There is a large price break at this number of boards, so to keep the price down we need to make a lot. Also, I will funnel the "profits" from the fundraiser into even more boards so I can keep tindie stocked for a good while yet.
Once I have the money it will take 5-10 weeks to get the boards manufactured and they will start shipping as as soon as I get them.
ExtraCore V1 came out a year before either of those products. Noboby copied anybody really. More importantly all three boards are quite different and equally awesome. Digi-spark is a low cost very small 6 pin board. FemtoDuino is a slightly higher cost (than ExtraCore), tiny board with an Atmega328. All are great boards and you should buy the one that suites your needs.
