Two pins will be for power and 4 pins (universal inputs/outputs with digital/analogue capabilities) so that you can connect different types of sensors and actuators.
Indeed we will ensure no shorting can take place. The PyGo will in any event have such a circuitry protection built in.

We’re also thinking of making some of the pins available on the PyGo device itself (whilst still retaining its IP67 properties)…
I am glad to hear this. By implementing these pins the PyGo will become very interesting platform for wearable products for which using Enterprise cradle would be impractical.
Please make sure that:
it will be possible to power external circuitry from PyGo (and vice-versa?)
it will be possible to init UART, I2C or SPI bus on available pins
it will be possible to use of-the-shelf mating connector on the host device
In my opinion it is also important that to find a way how to fix PyGo onto the host device without any structures required on the housing of the host device which would be too difficult to manufacture (mold, CNC-machine, 3D-print). Maybe magnets?
