This has been an idea created by Berlin TTN Community, and Zoltan in Hungary (www.zane.hu) kindly catched the idea and did it. Great! Thx!

It has been designed especially for your first LoRa, LoRaWAN experiments, workshops, lectures and so on. It can also serve tons of other multiple purposes. You are no longer dependant from instable breadboard experiments, when leaving the workshop....

We will test it further and report the results here.

Esp. our experiences with the inbuilt 3-axis accelerometer, that could extend possibilities @large.
