Leon Anavi has just launched his first crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo. He wants to fund the RabbitMax Flex which is an add-on board for the Raspberry Pi. The main board is HAT-sized and hosts the following:
- a relay
- a buzzer
- a button
- an IR transmitter (IR LED)
- an IR receiver (IR photo sensor)
- an RGB LED
- slots for 5 I2C sensors
- slot for a 16×2 LCD display
It’s a bit of an odd beast but is designed to be a home for your Internet of Things projects. The I2C headers are particularly useful and you can get I2C sensors to go along with the Flex HAT as part of the campaign reward levels. Rewards start at 20 Euros and you can take a look at the campaign here.
Leon was kind enough to send me one of the early boards to take a look at. I’m halfway through writing the review at the moment, but I thought I’d post this quick blog to make sure you didn’t miss out on the Earlybirds! Definitely worth a look!
