MakerNet is in the concept stage, although there have been some light exploratory prototypes. Some of the intended features:
Pre-made modules: A small library of cool modules such as a rotary encoder, 8x8 matrix, capacitive slider, MCU board, neopixel driver, LCD/OLED screen, 4-way control pad, sensors, etc. All of them will be compatible and interoperable
Bus Architecture: MakerNet will be built on a bus architecture (initially I2C, later RS485) that allows true "plug and play" for most projects
No Soldering: Everything is connected with JST-SH 6 pins and can be daisy chained
Case plans: Every component has a clear mounting strategy, eliminating guesswork on how to put it into a case. Mix and match modules to create the control panels of your dreams! Everything flush mounts with countersunk M2 hex flat-head screws.
Low Power: All modules can be shut down into a low-power state consuming only a few microamps, meaning your projects won't need on/off switches
Battery management: The base MCU board will support lipo charging and charge monitoring
USB programable with Arduino: The core MCU will be either the SAMD21 or possibly the Teensy 3.2. The core module will expose a USB port to the outside of your case.
Common libraries: Programming will be largely event-driven
