Adding GPIO

by Akshar Vastarpara

One of our backers made a great suggestion: why not add GPIO expansion to Maypole? We liked the idea so much, we decided to do it! To that end, we designed a revision with four GPIO so that Maypole can be used to interface with sensors and other hardware add-ons. These pins can be used for SPI, I²C, UART, or analog input.

This will allow you to, for example, attach a I²C temperature sensor, record measurements onto Maypole’s MicroSD card, then access the data either via USB or over the network.

Design Files for our 3D-Printed Enclosure

Last week, we showed off some photographs of our 3D-Printed enclosure but we forgot to link to the design files. Oops! Here they are!

Electronics was just all about engineering at the beginning, but the hacker community turned this industry into an artistic creative fun thing. We, Vicharak, are particularly interested in developing various kinds of hardware which will eventually serve people and hackers. We have already launched our first campaign with Maypole and some more cool projects are in the pipeline too! We want to try every possible electronics segment which can be hackable and make it more easily hackable. Our main goal is to develop simple solutions with major features.
