RFduino: iPhone, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Arduino Compatible Board!

The RFduino is the worlds first wireless coin-sized Arduino compatible open-source micro-computer that talks to your iPhone using Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy!

Looks great!

Which version(s) of the IDE can be used?


The RFduino is loads cheaper than an Arduino with Bluetooth. It contains a Nordic 32 bit ARM Cortex-M0 processor. Any idea how this processor compares with an Arduino UNO or an iPhone performance-wise like for image processing?

Very good promo Vid!

Works with this?

I just backed that. Looks pretty cool, I'll find some use for it.

Does anyone know what makes this compatible with Arduino sketches? I suspect that the Arduino sketch has to target the Duo and perhaps the M0 and M3 share the Thumb-2 instruction set, but the M0 uses a "subset" of that instruction set. So I am wondering how compatibility is guaranteed. If they said that the M3 would run code target to the M0 I would say that makes sense, but I'm not so sure about the reverse.
