Internet of Things and Kickstarter

Kickstarter

Internet of Things and Kickstarter.

Kickstarter is becoming one of the largest funding platforms in the world and Makers and hardware manufacturers are continuing to see the site as a quick way to test their product concept on the market, cover bulk upfront supplier costs, and bring their connected products to life. 

Twine, the sensor block system developed by Supermechanical was the first web enabled product to be a breakout hit on the site by raising over half a million dollars in early January, and recently the Pebble watch blew through Kickstarter’s old funding records by raising more than $10 million during its month-long campaign.

…we take a look at some of the successful (and a few not so successful) Internet of Things related projects that are driving this trend and where they currently stand in their development process.

Nice list!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
