If the Arduino wasn’t friendly enough, along comes the Teagueduino from the folks at Teague Labs. Breadboards too confusing? Code have you cross-eyed? Ready-to-go plug-in components and a realtime editor give beginners the training wheels they need to get experimenting right away, while minimizing the fear of breaking something along the way. [Thanks, Adam!]
Teagueduino comes from a long line of hacks and experiments within our design studio and across the open source Arduino/Freeduino community (particularly inspiring were LittleBits and the Grove System). While the more engineering-minded among us have been quick to dive into Arduino, it has become increasingly clear that Arduino is still too technical and daunting for the majority of other creative types just getting started. Teagueduino is our first major step toward an embedded development stepping-stone that makes building projects simple, while exposing key details (such as code syntax, electrical signal values, and physical hardware integration) that provide a scaffolding for learning more advanced systems and tools.
