FAQ

COST

I’m currently targeting a price of $50 for an assembled Arduboy… but that’s not all! You’ll get access to a special section of the forum for backers only. This area will be your place to give feedback and get extra support.

TIMING

Very soon! Arduboy is launching exclusively on Tindie! If you have been following my Twitter or YouTube you know I’ve been very busy working on improving the design. I have added a larger screen, a replacable battery and made it very easy to attach a programming cable!

PROGRAMMING

Arduboy is powered by Arduino! You will need a serial to USB adapter known as an FTDI cable to connect to the card. The cable will plug directly into the card without having to solder any connections, more details soon!

GAMES

Flappy Ball, Space Rocks, Snake, Hangman, Breakout, Chess, and we are also working on Ardumon (A pet collecting and battle game)… but the most exciting will be made by you!

BATTERY

I have updated the design so that the battery can be replaced with a standard CR2016 you can buy at the grocery store or anywhere online! The battery slides right it doesn’t add any thickness!

MANUFACTURING AND KITS

I’m working hard to lower the cost of manufacturing the Arduboy! I’ve got some great help and want to share what I’m learning as I go. Also on the agenda is how to produce and support kit forms of the Arduboy. Stay tuned for an exciting announcement soon that will allow me to elaborate more on this!
