General Discussion / CleO35 with Camera Demo Video
« on: July 15, 2016, 11:40:21 AM »
To demonstrate the CleO35 camera, we strapped a CleO35+Camera to a tripod and took it for a walk around Singapore. Here is the video taken by the camera. Some post processing was required to balance the colour and contrast, but probably no more than you would with a video taken with a mid-range mobile phone.
We posted it to YouTube - follow this link to view it -

We are delighted to announce that following the release of our first batch of CleO kits to our Indiegogo backers, we are now making the product fully available to all customers. The CleO35 module and full accessory suite including camera, speaker, reverse I/O (RIO) adapter, power adapter and Micro-SD card are now on sale via our distribution channels and on our web shop

Our CleO product page equips customers with additional detail on the products available, provides product datasheets and features key information on the projects and tutorials made possible using CleO. In addition, our dedicated technical support site for the series,, provides a full software release package with instructions on how to work with CleO, a getting started video, and an interactive user forum. Finally, the product press release is available here.

General Discussion / Updates to Firmware, Projects and Tutorials
« on: June 23, 2016, 02:40:57 PM »
Well, its been a few weeks now since our initial release to our early bird ( May ) backers. We are still hard at work, refining the projects, tutorials and documentation to improve the end user experience for our users. For instance, the clock projects now don't rely on having RTC hardware present - if it's not there it will take you to the Time/Date dialog to set up the time/date should you wish. The clocks now include a speaking clock icon. Tap on this, and, assuming you have a speaker connected it will tell you the time in a not-too-bad robotic voice. Cool, annoying or what? Up to you - we do it because we can ;-)
More to come- we just need to get the existing projects/tutorials in shape first.

General Discussion / Spammers..
« on: June 23, 2016, 12:48:53 PM »
We've started to get spam messages posted to this  forum - you might have seen a couple of them before I deleted them. There's been hundreds of fake users ( strange machine generated user names ) registering  on the site so I'm working my way though the list to delete these and block the host/IP addresses to stop this happening.  Sigh...

General Discussion / Hello and thanks
« on: June 09, 2016, 02:04:37 PM »
Welcome all,
After nine busy months of hardware/software/firmware development on the CleO platform we are pleased to finally launch the platform publicly. To our crowdfunding backers, thank you all for your support - I hope you like what we've done to date - this is a just a beginning to the platform and we hope to extend it well beyond a playground into one that's viable for developing commercial products as well.
In this forum, you are welcome to browse it as a guest, however, if you want to reply or post new topics on the forum, you have to register to the forum to do that. Registration involves supplying a UserName ( your real name or anything you want ) and your user defined password - which of course you must remember.
The site sends out an email to verify your email address ( takes about 10 minutes or so ) - you verify that and welcome on board.
Fred and the FTDI team.
