We have been working on a whole new Arduino compatible board – FlyBlue, which integrates the IT latest BLE chip CC2560.
With this chip, we implement the wireless programming by Arduino IDE on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
To use the wireless programming function, no AT command needed, nor any configuration is needed, all you need is to plug an USB adapter to your computer, which can be recognized just as Arduino UNO.
With this function, you can make lots of applications that are inconvenient to be programmed by connecting an USB cable.
Besides, integrating the BLE function, the Flyblue can also communicate with other BLE device. We made an android APP for controlling the arduino car.
We really like to hear more about your idea to play with this whole new Arduino compatible board.

Chinese Spring Festival is comming. Happy new year to you all! Gong Hey Fat Choy!
Here we will have the holiday arrangement:
1. Orders will be stop shipping by Feb. 3rd and restore at Feb. 15th.
2. PCB orders made after Jan. 29th will be shipped from Feb. 15th.
BTW, we have a good progress on the project of FlyBlue:
Testing the signal strength of unmatched impendence version of the BLE board.
We will keep you posted and welcome any ideas for this project.
Except keeping the compatibility for Arduino, there are the some changes of Electronic Brick Shield v1.2:
1. Use the breadboard type of though holes, making it easy for soldering DIP ICs.
2. Add an external power input connector and a push button switch, making it easy for power supply control.
3. Use all through hole components, making it easy for manufacture.
The board is under prototyping, and it should be available by the end of Jan. 2016.
Thanks for your support!
Happy New Year!
we put makeduino uno r3 and bluetooth 4.0(BLE) together to make you building your application more easier. And also the bluetooth module support SPP as well, which means the board can connect to the device with bluetooth 2.1 or bluetooth 4.0.
Demo code for Arduino is available.
The Balance Shield is the main function board for the Balanbot. It integrates one L298P for driving motor, and one MPU6050 for getting angle and speed information. The Balance Shield is under Manufacturing now. Here is the photo of panelized board.
