The 1Sheeld+ is a single add-on board for Arduino Microcontrollers. Unlike any other normal shield that have expensive sensors integrated onto the board, this shield uses multiple sensors that people carry on a day to day basis that they probably don’t know or forget.
It’s your Smartphone! Load with Fingerprint sensor, IR Sensor, Microphone, Speaker, LCD Display that has touch capability, Gyro, Accelerometer, Sim Card for Data, Camera in either front or backwards facing direction, Vibration motor, Proximity Sensor, Compass and many more depending on the phone you carry.
This board uses the latest HM-10 Bluetooth module allowing users to use either Apple iOS 9+ or Android 4.3+ based phone to access the sensors via serial!
Although you could purchase simply a Bluetooth module, the user interface is what makes this feat remarkable and intuitive to use.
Imagine the savings on cost, reduce cost on sensors, shields and even Bluetooth modules! You could make multiple prototypes and reuse them. Once you like the project you want you can get the specific sensors you are looking for to make a permanent module.
