About

[We have exciting news. Check out the "updates" tab above!]

Love making electronics projects? Here's the platform right for you!

What is Nibble?

Nibble is a portable device made for users, developers and electronic enthusiasts. Employ it to create amazing projects, develop games/utilities or learn how to program. The only limit is your own imagination...

Nibble integrates everything you need and it is so tiny that fits in your pocket.

Never worry again about buying an external battery life for your project because Nibble already integrates a 300mAh LiPo battery that lasts for ~6 hours of playing/coding/making.

It also stands out for a powerful 802.11 b/g/n programmable WiFi module, a microSD card slot, a micro USB port (for data / charging) and an expansion port (ICSP, I2C, digital and analog pins)...

Main specifications

these informations are refered to the latest prototype (currently V2):

  • ATMEGA328P - 16 MHz
  • Wifi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi Direct, TCP/IP
  • 128x64 OLED Display
  • LiPo battery - 300 mAh - 8+ hours battery life
  • 8 push buttons
  • MicroSD slot
  • IR transmitter
  • 2 Channel Piezo Speaker
  • Overvoltage protection
  • Programming: Arduino IDE, AVRDude, etc...
  • ...

refer to the "Prototypes building" chart for complete specs

Incredibly small

Nibble is so small compared to a credit card...

...or some coins :D

Expansion port: connect your world!

Nibble has a lot of features but what about using external electronic components?

You can use them!

Thanks to the "expansion port" Nibble is able to read inputs (example: button push, twitter message, sun light) and turn it into an output (example: turning on an LED, moving a motor)

The expansion port pins on the Nibble can be configured as either inputs or outputs.

Here's a simple example with a LED:

Control your TV!

Did you know that Nibble has an IR transmitter and can be used as a TV Remote?

Nibble loader: one app to rule them all

Every Nibble device will ship with a utility called "Nibble Loader".

This utility integrates a File manager (MicroSD), an IR remote app and components diagnostics utilities.

We're also testing HEX binary loading via MicroSD.

You have the control

Even if we have a fully working prototype we know that Nibble project could be improved. And here comes your time!

We'll constantly publish surveys to better understand users' desires.

Do you want a bigger screen? An additional notification led? Write us and we'll add this request into the next survey.

If users will like your idea and our budget permits it we will integrate that feature into the project.

"With great power comes great responsibility" Keep this in mind :P

It's Arduino, as you know it.

We developed an Arduino IDE library exclusively for Nibble.

You can use it to create games and utilities. We will also provide examples and tutorials. Coding will be extremely easy even if you're a beginner!

If you are a programmer you'll be happy to know that Nibble's library is completely open source, feel free to edit and redistribute it.

Hello world on Arduino IDE :)

FDTI Chip inside: Nibble just needs a micro USB cable to be programmed!

Forget about buying external programmers to program your device...Nibble integrates an FTDI chip so you just need a micro USB cable.

microUSB port is also used to charge the battery up.

Your Nibble, your style

Every Nibble box contains replacement button caps to make your Nibble unique and good looking.

You can dress Nibble with black, blue, gray, red, green and yellow caps.

There are hundreds of color combinations!

Have a look at the "Box content" section to discover how many repleacement buttons will be included. We'll also make caps available separately.
