1,025 backers pledged $170,017 to help bring this project to life.

Turn anything into a bluetooth peripheral for your mobile device! - Module Demos.

Dear backers: with less than 1 week left, we have some great expansion module demos to show.  Please submit this update to technology sites/blogs, help us get back in the spotlight 1 more time before the project closes! 

Easy Bluetooth Interface for Mobile Accessories!

Sensordrone is not just a sensor platform, it is an EASY bluetooth interface. This means you can use Sensordrone to connect virtually anything to a smartphone over bluetooth, this video update shows some of the possibilities.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
Ambient CO2 is the key gas the world is keeping an eye on for global warming studies. CO2 in exhaled breath is interesting for a number of medical applications. We are offering an ambient CO2 sensor module for backers.

Water Quality Monitoring
You can do that too! In collaboration with Atlas Scientific, we’re making pH & Dissolved Oxygen sensor modules for Sensordrone so you can read water quality information on your smartphone!


We are creating new rewards for you to get CO2, pH and/or Dissolved Oxygen modules in addition to your Sensordrone. We will offer a variety of other modules in the future as well, like a multi-gas air quality monitoring module, a thermal imaging module, and be working with partners to offer medical related modules.

Module Development Support
For developers that want to connect any hardware to mobile phones, an EASY bluetooth interface means Sensordrone will take care of all the bluetooth overhead for you, and directly display voltage or digital data on your phone. Then, App development is simply focused on data presentation without the need to develop bluetooth firmware/software.

Sparkfun offers all kinds of parts for you to build your own bluetooth peripheral that connects to Sensordrone’s simple expansion connector.

Maybe you’d like to make a printer, a dust sensor, or work with solar panels. Browse Sparkfun’s catalog, and let us know what you want to connect to Sensordrone, and we’ll give you tips on how to do it.

      In order to make sense of the data, we need the protocol that is transmitting over the bluetooth.
      Will there be some documentation on it, and maybe some tutorials, especially examples of using arduinos?

      Two packages, yes, but if one costs 15$ then two should not be 40$. I would perhaps consider 30$, a discount on the second shipment would be much apprexiated though. The NODE project even gave you free shipping for the "ships later" expansion module...

      I can understand the shipping costs, as they'll have to send 2 or more separate packages.

      The easiest is that they accept an increase on your current pledge for an extra module, they should provide the amount the pledge has to be increased to add a module in your pledge (shipping cost are too high for me)

      I'd like to get the CO2 module, but I already got the early bird special. So I guess if I would select the 285 dollar pledge I'd be losing the 26 dollars in "discount" (149 vs 175). Is there any way around this?

      Hrm. Specific gravity / % alcohol sensor? d: For us homebrewers out there...

      You're right Victor,
      But we'll never be able to offer everything...That's why it's open to other developers.

    8. Victor Carrano on July 16, 2012

      Not just pH, but chlorine, total alkalinity and cyanuric acid. Need to easily check all these.

    9. Sensorcon Creator on July 16, 2012

      Yes, these pH sensors are used by people for measuring pH in swimming pools.

      I'm not a developer but I'm a backer and after seeing this last video and saw the Water Quality Sensors, the first thing that came up to my mind was water sensor to check my pool for pH and chlorine levels. Can you do that? Instead of using those dreaded drops and comparing colors against a white background and trying to figure out how many liters of chorine to add or other chemicals to add to lower the pH. It would be great to have an sensor that measures all that stuff and depending on how many litters/gallons your pool is you only need to add X amount of whatever X chemical you need. I hope this makes some sense. I'm from Mexico and english is not my first language. Blue skies!!
