One Dollar Board – Cheapest development board on the market

What if you could manufacture a very simple development board that is arduino compatible and have a final price of only ONE DOLLAR!? That’s what some crazy guys from my home country (Brazil) are trying to accomplish.

one dollar board

The main idea of the project is to enable every kid around the globe to leave school knowing how to program, the basic of electronics, and how to apply their knowledge by building cool things. Think like this, with only $25 you can buy 25 boards, which will enable pretty much an entire classroom to own these boards and create amazing things with it. It’s crazy to think the impact that the project can make in poorer areas of the world, enabling those engineering minds to flourish and change the world for better (why not?!).

Check their indiegogo video below and remember that for every dollar invested is one entire new board built!

(of course the project is part of the open hardware movement)

    Olá Daniel.
    A proposta do projeto é tão louvável (e audaciosa) que eu nem me atentei a parte técnica. Apoiei na hora!
    Desejo sucesso neste imenso desafio.
