Synopsis: TinyCircuits is an Akron-based company and a maker of open source electronic boards that allow the user create custom miniature electronic projects. Their main product is the TinyDuino – an Arduino compatible platform the size of a US Quarter. The TinyDuino platform is completely modular and works like tiny electronic LEGOs, so the user can easily add complex functions, like GPS, WiFi, motor control or graphics displays to custom projects just by plugging the expandable modules (called TinyShields).
