Get Over 1/2 Mile Range With Wireless Arduino Projects

Break Your Arduino Free From Wifi

A $20 wirelesss development board based on Arduino is about to enter the market.  Makers everywhere are excited about the possibilities this brings to their projects.

Flutter Wireless

 Our goal is to provide the community with access to inexpensive and reliable wireless technology. That’s why we built flutter. Based on Arduino, flutter is a wireless electronic development board with an ARM processor and integrated hardware encryption.

Flutter is a successfully funded Kickstarter Project that raised $149,906 of it’s original $80,000 goal.

Flutter offers the following features:

  • 1,000+ meter range
  • 1.2 Mbps max data rate
  • 915 MHz operating frequency
  • Atmel SAM3s ARM CPU at 64MHz
  • Cryptographic key storage
  • Mesh networking
  • 3.3v system voltage
  • 10-40mA current draw (normal use)

Unlike many wifi-based products, flutter boards talk directly to each other – no routers or servers required. All you need to make a flutter network is two flutter boards and power. Whether you’re preparing for Burning Man or just building a project for your next hiking trip, flutter has you covered.

Due to begin shipping in April, this product has serious potential for some amazing wireless projects.  I can’t wait to get my hands on a kit.
