How it works //

ndur place engage go

In response to the physical limitations of Arduino and Raspberry Pi hardware, we developed ndur – an interactive case with great, big objectives.

ndur microdevice case description

The Arduino microcontroller and Raspberry Pi microcomputer have general input and output pins used to interact on a hardware level with a program. To make easy use of hardware functions using the devices’ I/O pins, users need sensor implements like ndur buttons to help provide control.

The ndur case for Arduino and Raspberry Pi provides basic interactive functions simply and quickly via a durable design that promotes clean wiring, and a row of pre-wired, LED-backlit buttons. The ndur case includes pin headers and a short ribbon cable to provide a ready connection between the onboard buttons and the microdevice I/O pins, allowing immediate interactivity and relieving extra circuit-building work to the benefit of new users and educators.

The ndur buttons are momentary switch buttons; for each function, users load a code snippet provided by Ventur Inc. on our online platform. Neither device holds an OS upon arrival – a benefit of today’s microdevices – teaching users the process of building and interacting with a microcomputing device via an open, inviting platform.

On the Ventur Inc. team //

Ventur Inc. is a Seattle-based team of designers, engineers, thinkers and doers. We want computer science to be as accessible as possible, and our bounds of possibility span curious minds aged 8 to 108.


Start Something: A case for easy interaction with microdevices

The ndur case is designed to engage and delight users in their command of basic (and not so basic) computer science modeling, providing ready interaction with the Arduino microcontroller and Raspberry Pi microcomputer. Today's microdevices are compact and inexpensive - built to inspire those on the fringe of computer science - yet they struggle to engage inexpert minds with their sharp corners and visible nodes.
