With a philosophy based on open source software and open hardware mentality, the Ninja Blocks are cool little devices that let you hook up all kind of sensors to monitor your house, manage your electricty, temperature or take pictures and upload them to your Dropbox. The devices can be programmed easily without the need to know any programming language.
Ninja Blocks are tiny cloud enabled computers that can sense their environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors & can affect their surroundings by controlling lights, power sockets, and other actuators.
At the heart of Ninja Blocks is an Open Hardware philosophy that makes ourelectronics schematics, case designs and source code available to developers and students so that they can learn from them and submit suggestions and modifications.
