Button-sized module from Intel will power development board for students.

Intel first showed off Curie at CES in January. Despite it’s small size (about the size of a shirt button) it comes packing motion sensors, Bluetooth Low Energy support, and battery charging circuitry, making it ideal to applications in always-on health and wellness devices. “Empowering budding entrepreneurs and young students has always been a priority for Intel, and by partnering with Arduino, we are bringing the power of Intel to a new generation of makers,” said Josh Walden, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s New Technology Group. “With the advanced features of the Intel Curie module embodied in the Arduino 101 board, young learners as well as developers can now bring to life truly unique, smart and connected creations.” To help kickstart its use, the board will be the featured prototyping tool for contestants on the reality show America’s Greatest Makers airing next year. It will also be incorporated into Arduino’s Creative Technologies in the Classroom computing course which is currently deployed in over 300 schools around the country. “Through our work with Intel, we’re able to reach a global community of entry-level makers and students with a comprehensive introduction to physical computing and now with a more advanced, powerful technology solution that will help them bring their creative visions to reality,” said Massimo Banzi, co-founder and CEO, Arduino.

Arduino 101 will go on sale during the first quarter of 2016 for a suggested retail price of $30, a price comparable to other similar boards such as Raspberry Pi.
