We all love our Pi Zero, however it does not have any built-in networking or wireless capability; how we wish it could be connected to our beloved Internet or Bluetooth devices without those additional wires, USB hubs and dongles. After our recent successful Kickstarter campaign “RedBear Duo – a small and powerful Wi-Fi + Bluetooth IoT board“, it occurred to us that we had the perfect solution to this inconvenience… why not build a Wi-Fi + Bluetooth IoT HAT for Raspberry Pi Zero!! The red board you see in the pictures is what we are talking about. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11n (2.4GHz) + Bluetooth 4.1 (Dual Mode – Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy) all running at the same time. Moreover, our IoT HAT is using the same WiFi + Bluetooth IC on Raspberry Pi 3. Now get connected to the Internet, Bluetooth keyboard, Bluetooth mouse and other Bluetooth/BLE devices simultaneously with just one module.
