In 2010, I developed an arduino-like board meant to be cheap, simple to populate, and wearable. I consider it wearable as requires low-power and as it is light and small. Some of the board features are:
- microcontroller programming through ICSP;
- microcontroller placed on socket, allowing its programming using another standalone arduino board;
- hidden components underneath the socket for space efficiency;
- safe connector to power regulator or power source through FTDI;
- input and output port accessible through header pins.
16 of these boards, connected to several sensors and actuators, were used in a contemporary dance show that later participated in the Brazilian Dance Bienal.
