1. Start with a Base
Each base holds up to four Modulos. Bases can be connected together with extension cables if you need more room.
The Particle Base has a socket which accepts controllers like the wifi-connected Particle Photon, cellular connected Particle Electron, or bluetooth compatible Bluz.Pick your base
2. Select a Controller
The Modulo controller is an high performance arduino-compatible microcontroller that slides into the Base, just like any other Modulo. It’s the most compact way to control your Modulo project. It can also act as a USB bridge so you can control Modulos from python running on a mac, PC, or single board computer.
Alternatively, you can use the Particle Photon, Particle Electron, or Bluz controller to build Wifi, Cellular, and Bluetooth connected projects respectively.
3. Add Modulos
Each Modulo is smart enough to handle all the low level details of its own operation, so you never need to worry about things like pin numbers or registers. We have an amazing set of Modulos available and will create more as time goes on.Take a look at all our Modulos
4. Program It
The Modulo API makes it a breeze to program your devices. You can use it from several development environments.
- Using the Arduino app, with code running on the Modulo controller or any other Arduino compatible microcontroller.
- Using particle.io’s awesome development environment with code running on the Particle Photon, Particle Electron, or Bluz. (Modulo Controller not required in this configuration)
- Using python, with code running on a mac, PC, or single board computer like a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone. (requires a Modulo controller for connecting Modulo via USB)
Regardless of which programming environment you choose, we’ve made Modulo as simple and straightforward to program as possible. Want to learn more? Come join our community, we can't wait to hear from you!Join our community

Modulo has Landed!December, Tuesday 15, 2015
Last week we shipped out all of the kickstarter backer rewards as well as all pre-orders from the online store! That means we are totally up to date now with shipping and can process new orders quickly... usually the same or next day!
Modulo is now shipping!December, Tuesday 08, 2015
Kickstarter Update #16: Modulo is now shipping! We've also completed the python API, finished writing an initial set of tutorials, and published the latest version of our libraries for Arduino, Particle, and Python.
