The BLE-Shield is finally on Kickstarter !

Hello guys,

finally I managed to get the BLE-Shield, teamed up with Jonathan Prevo and Don Mallicot again. See the following link to get to the Kickstarter Project:

I decided to startover on Kickstarter, since the initial poll I made to get an estimate how many people are interested in a shield, showed me that I could never afford it to pay for this amount upfront.

The final design of the Shield v1.0.0 is already finished and the manufacturer is waiting for green light to start production. So there won’t be any delays anymore. Once the project is funded I will start production immediately an the manufacturer will ship the BLE Shields to your hands.

So now it’s your turn, Kickstarters. Pledge for BLE-Shields and get on in october!

Thank you very much for supporting the product!

    Great job, Dr. Kroll! Thank you for putting this shield on the market (soon to be). I hope you let people know that this is not just for the iPhone and Apple products but for all new PCs and devices that are Bluetooth Smart Ready using the new Bluetooth 4.0 standard. Low power usage will open up the number of cool applications that can be made with this technology. Android phones, Windows phone 8 devices, Windows 8 PC with their cool touch screens, etc. The possibilities are endless! Perhaps showing a wide sample of these hosts and devices working with your shield will open up more eyes to what your shield can do.

    I am sure the price for these radios will come down in the next few years and you will see them in just about every sensor and maker project imaginable.

    Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to see these shields for sale at a nice low price!
