NinjaBlocks!

Madeleine Moore, Marcus Schappi, and Mark Wotton created Ninja Blocks as an “Internet of Things” platform. The BeagleBone and Arduino-based block computer let’s you “hack your world” and collect sensor data to be aggregated in the NinaCloud.

Light, Button, PIR, Distance, and temperature sensors.
