Introducing the BITalino, a (comparatively) low cost biomedical data acquisition dev board that allows you to create projects using physiological sensors and tools. Each BITalino is presented in a "ProtoSnap style" making it able to be programmed as a whole board or snapped apart for use in future projects. This dev board also has no shortage of programming APIs which include Python, Java, Android, and more.
The BITalino is equipped with nine removable "blocks" which can be used straight out-of-the-box and include an MCU, Bluetooth, Power, EMG, EDA, ECG, Accelerometer, LED, and Light Sensor! At the heart of this dev board is the tried and true ATMega328 micro-controller that can be configured with a sampling rate up to 1000Hz and capable of supporting six analog inputs (four at 10-bit, two at 6-bit), four digital inputs, and four digital outputs. With the attached BC417 Bluetooth module, triaxial MEMS accelerometer, and physiological sensor inputs will find it difficult to run out of ideas for projects.
In the Documents section below you will will find a link for OpenSignals, a new software that empowers your BITalino. OpenSignals allows you to playback your previously recorded sessions and zoom in and out of specific periods, plug in architecture available for future optional add-ons to help you analyze your signals, customize transfer function definitions, and more.
Note: The BITalino only communicates via Bluetooth with your computer.
Note: Due to the requirements of shipping the battery in this kit, orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Additionally, these batteries can not be shipped via Ground or Economy methods to Alaska or Hawaii. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Included on the Board:
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

It's a nice kit, very usefull
There was a problem in the python example code. With their help, I got the python example to work.
I am now trying to get the C++ example to run. There is a problem. I am on day five trying to get both the python and C++ code supplied by Bitalino to run.
