Meet MICO, Arduino users' new best friend

Photo-main

MICO makes it easy for Arduino to talk on Android & iPhones, so that you create even more awesome projects!1: answering machine + remote control: see video where I use MICO to start my car's engine: http://youtu.be/xdTZt-yp2os I used one of MICO's output to toggle a remote starter previously installedHere's another example, this is the demo shown in the first Kickstarter project. It shows MICO answering the call and presenting the user with a voice prompt: http://youtu.be/04EI8nkBZUE?t=1m20s5. TWO MICOs calling each other and transfering data: take advantage of the fact MICO can decode DTMF and generate tones (stored as sounds in the MicroSD card)MICO's initial development was funded here at Kickstarter. There were 45 supporters who made possible for me to go from a breadboarding prototype to a neat board professionally made and assembled final prototype board. Development went through 3 board revisions, and lots of hand soldering components until the final product. Check out the original project here.Now on phase 2, the objective is to take the proven design to a next level. I need funding to mass produce MICO. An order of at least 500 units to lower manufacturing cost. Benefiting the supporters with a more attractive price, in line with other shields. Create a community of Mico users.
