While its northern neighbor is preparing for war and the end of the world as we know it, South Korea is investing in a friendlier future where the children of today develop the technology of tomorrow. To achieve this goal it was decided to rework the Arduino platform a bit to make it safer for children.

Indeed, based on the Arduino Uno, the Korean maker platform Kokoa fab has created the Orange Board which is supposed to be safer for children because it is built with surface-mount technology (SMT) components where possible in order to keep the board surface smooth. More interesting in my opinion is their Orange Board BLE that has disconnectable on-board Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) thanks to an nRF51822 chip from Nordic.



Both bright orange boards are said to be 100% Arduino Uno compatible and they are fully supported by CodeBender, the online Arduino development platfotm.
