Clifton Roozeboom has been in touch. He and the team at PocketLab are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund PocketLab Voyager and PocketLab Weather. They are small devices that are packed with sensors and communicate with a host device over Bluetooth.
Clifton has said that they have just enabled Raspberry Pi support. They’ve built a Python library and example code that communicates with the PocketLab devices over Bluetooth LE.
Here is what they have to say about the devices on the campaign page:
PocketLab Voyager is an all-in-one science lab that is capable enough for a professional engineer and simple enough for a 4th grade student. Voyager can measure motion, light, magnetic field, and weather, and you can attach an external temperature probe.
PocketLab Weather is a rugged weather center that can measure temperature, humidity, light, barometric pressure, heat index, dew point and can connect to an external temperature probe. Weather combines precise measurement equipment in a portable device that you can take anywhere.
They are very cute packages that have a lot of capabilities. They have rechargeable batteries inside, making them very portable. You can pledge for the PocketLab Weather for $78 + postage and the PocketLab Voyager for $128. That’s not a bad price range considering the capabilities.
