Ever built a project and sealed your board inside, only to find you left a bug in your code? With Bean, you can program wirelessly from any of your devices. No more unscrewing screws and ungluing glue.
Bean and Bean+ both come with a built-in accelerometer, temperature sensor, and RGB LED. You can start blinking and building right out of the box—no soldering required.
Bean+ comes with a LiPo battery and charges just like any other micro-USB device. If you need more capacity, simply solder on your own LiPo as a replacement.
Grove is a system of components designed for makers. The Grove ports on Bean+ make it easy to add parts without soldering.
The built-in headers on Bean+ make it easier than ever to build your own addon boards. Just spin a PCB, add headers and plug it in!
Bean+ operates at either 3.3 or 5 volts, so it can talk to all your favorite peripherals. You won’t have to limit which parts you can use because of incompatible operating voltages.
Bean comes with a coin cell battery from the factory. It’s turned on inside the box, so you can start blinking your Bean before you open its package!
At under 3 inches long, Bean is just the right size for any project. You can also saw off the protoboard if you need more space.
If you’re adding parts to Bean, the protoboard gives you plenty of space to solder and wire components. It’s also great for mounting headers to connect to larger protoboards or PCBs.
We want to make the LightBlue Bean incredibly simple to use. Bean works with Arduino, so your favorite libraries are ready to use. Just plug, program and play.
Are you on-site at the art festival trying to reprogram your giant disco ball? Bean Loader works on Windows, OS X, iOS, and Android. You’re ready for development anywhere.
