It’s a Nodana 96BCE robot!

June 1, 2017 | Celine Marie Barrozo

Every now and then, Geppetto users send us images or photos of the amazing and cool things they are doing with our boards. Take for example, Chris Barrett (@CBScript) who created this robot using our Nodana 96BCE board.


Nodana 96BCE is our expansion board that brings Intel Joule® module™ to the fast-growing, open-specification 96Boards community. It is designed using Geppetto, our free online design-to-order tool. If you want to learn more about Nodana, read the post from our Gumstix Guru about it last January!

This kind of messages from our customers make our day! If you have any cool projects you want to share with us, be sure to Contact Us either by email or through one of our social media accounts!
