The bluetooth enabled electronics prototyping kit SAM is now live on Kickstarter. Go and pledge now – they’re awesome.
We met the guys behind SAM a few weeks ago and what they’ve made is really impressive. Each module does something, whether it’s a motor or a switch and they’re all connected via bluetooth. The beauty of SAM is in the ability to create circuits without connecting a single wire. Just use their super simple drag and drop builder and connections are made instantly.

SAM Labs are asking for £50,000 to mass produce the kits. There is little risk here. They’ve already got a manufacturer they’re happy with and have used before to produce around 200 kits and the product has already been perfected.
You can get a SAM kit for as little as £45 but I highly recommend SAM pro for £200 if you can afford it because it comes with the cloud module to make circuits internet-enabled.
This is their Kickstarter page. Go there now.
