The company Temboo has presented a multi-device interface that will allow us to connect any Arduino or Genuino board to it to create experiments or projects with the sensors and functions that this multi-device has. It sounds weird, but it is very simple. Many times we have thought of creating time sensors, light sensors, etc ... in a single interface, all so as not to have to go mounting and dismounting. Well Well Temboo offers this in such a way that we just have to connect Arduino for it to work.

But what about the code for this Temboo multi-device?
Another improvement of the Temboo multi-device is the possibility of passing the code via network to via HTTP, MQTT or COAP protocol, something useful because we can use the new software that will allow us to install firmware on our boards without having to be connected to the computer. And all this using low energy sources, since the Temboo multi-device has the same energy consumption as the Arduino boards.
Is Temboo's multi-device really necessary?
The truth is that the Temboo multi-device is something useful for those who need to do many types of tests with their plates, but the truth is, leaving this function aside, the multi-device not really useful for the hobbyist or learning maker. Moreover, if we are looking for economic projects, possibly including this Temboo multi-device is not the best option.
In spite of everything, if we consider each component by its function, the truth is that this Temboo multi-device is unique and has little to do with other components such as shields, or extension boards that exist for Arduino. But the most interesting thing is that it uses the remote installation function, an installation that will be interesting to use with the software Arduino Create.
