An artistic Arduino compatible microcontroller!
is a complete Arduino compatible microcontroller. The former
comparatively rigid PCBs are well transformed and take on a brand new
vivid outlook with dynamic artistic and design elements into classic
Arduino Leonardo version. If you desire for a unique Arduino , Clio
would be a great choice.
Why Art Meets Open Hardware?
well known that the major reason of Arduino’s popularity is that it
reduces the difficulty in using hardware. This makes it possible for
innovators who have no hardware background to build projects easily.
Seeed has been thinking about presenting Arduino to beginners in a more
friendly way, so that PCB won’t be prohibitive to them. Hence, an idea
that combines arts and Arduino arises spontaneously.
How Art Meets Open Hardware: Clio comes into being!
invited the famous Chinese illustrator Popil to take part in the design
of this product. The appearance of Clio resembles the Russian Dolls,
with electronic elements added, On the premise of functionality and
stability, we all adopted SMT components, and tried to reduce the number
of components to the least, so that the silkscreen on the back of Clio
can be well protected, making the board more concise. In order to make
the doll more vivid, we use the stop mask at the eyes area on PCB. When
the LEDs light up, the bright eyes can be seen even from the front side
of the board.
The “Heart” of Clio
artistic elements and precise design of Clio are based on the same
microcontroller as Arduino Leonardo, the ATmega32u4 chip with 3.3
voltages condition. ATmega32u4 owns 8-bit microprocessor, but the
amazing new feature in-build USB Protocol achieves USB serial-
communication successfully without ft232! So, you can enjoy a cheaper
and more qualified Arduino.
Sharp feature of Clio
Clio is a product for the calling of e-artistic fashions.
design a button lithium battery to afford your masterpiece with one
more flexible choice, not only limited with USB charging. You simply
putting in a lithium battery of 3.0V, Clio will work immediately.
Inspiration of Clio
we have designed a stop mask at the top of Clio, thus it is quite
convenient for the makers to take with, but also a cute decoration for
Al endowed this cute Aduino board with a lovely name
: Clio. In Greek mythology, there were 9 goddesses of the arts. Clio being one of them, her focus was history.
