Spark Core: Wi-Fi for Everything (Arduino Compatible) by Spark IO. OBDLink MX WiFi: A Wireless Gateway to Vehicle OBD Networks by OBD Solutions. OBDLink MX WiFi is a pocket-sized, wireless device that enables you to access the data available on the OBD network with your smart phone, tablet, or PC.

OBDLink MX WiFi: A Wireless Gateway to Vehicle OBD Networks by OBD Solutions

The device plugs into the standard OBD port found in all modern vehicles, and requires no tools to install. The average installation time is 3 minutes, including the OBDLink app download. You can safely leave it plugged in: the unique BatterySaver technology will automatically put the device to sleep. Once you plug it in, MX will appear in the list of available networks as a secure WiFi Access Point.

MX supports all legislated OBD-II protocols, plus advanced Ford & GM vehicle networks (Ford MSC and GMLAN). With OBDLink MX Wifi, you can use your phone or tablet as a diagnostic scan tool, trip computer, heads-up display, and even as a remote control (on select vehicles). You'll also get our OBDwiz software, which offers the same functionality on Windows computers. Open Source Single Board Computer. Android device, Powerful computer, Arduino-compatible, ADK 2012 The most powerful and small developing board UDOO is a multi development platform solution for Android, Linux, Arduino™ and Google ADK 2012.

Open Source Single Board Computer

The board is designed to provide a flexible environment that allows to explore the new frontiers of the Internet of Things. UDOO allows you to switch between Linux and Android in a few seconds, simply by replacing the Micro SD card and rebooting the system. At this link you can also find a more technical and exhaustive document, the UDOO’s block diagram. Running Linux UDOO is a stand alone computer itself and since is based on the Freescale i.MX 6 CPU, it runs an optimized version of Linux Ubuntu for ARM architecture, called Linaro (11.10 at the moment). Running Android Android 4.3 Jelly Bean runs smootly on UDOO giving you all the features of an Android device (further Android releases will be available at the time of distribution). Arduino™ Warning: UDOO I/O pins are 3.3V only compliant.

Open source IoT toolkit. Spark Electron The Electron is a tiny development kit for creating cellular-connected electronics projects and products.

Open source IoT toolkit

It comes with a SIM card and an affordable data plan for low-bandwidth things. Plus it's available for more than 100 countries worldwide! Imagine a cellular-connected Arduino, but with a more powerful processor and a SIM card. It also comes with Spark's development tools and cloud platform for managing and interacting with your new connected hardware.

The Electron: Cellular dev kit with a global data plan by Spark IO. Konekt Dash: Cellular Dev Kit + Free Global Data Plan by Konekt Inc. We've devised a couple of shields to make sure you can get started with a project right away.

Konekt Dash: Cellular Dev Kit + Free Global Data Plan by Konekt Inc.

Just add the cost of a shield to your pledge and we'll get you whatever your heart desires when the campaign ends. (Note: all shields will have dual-footprints for the Konekt Dash and Dash Pro) The Konekt Global SIM and Platform is designed to be modular and completely hardware agnostic. The Dash and Dash Pro solve a lot of the hardware problems of building a cellular product for you, but if you're more comfortable on a different platform then you can utilize any of these 3rd Party Hardware Kits.

Plus they ship in May so you can get started right away! You can use all of these features with any hardware, not just the Konekt Dash. The Konekt Cloud allows devices to publish data to different topics, log the data and push that data to third-party applications/servers on the Internet. Onion Omega: The Invention Platform for Internet of Things by Onion. Risks and challenges We have fully functional prototypes of the Onion Omega and we have a team of uber-smart engineers in Boston, Toronto and Shenzhen - who are working around the clock to ensure that we can build a great product and deliver it on time.

Onion Omega: The Invention Platform for Internet of Things by Onion

However, like many Kickstarter projects, there are a number of risks and challenges that we need to mitigate before we can get the Omegas to each one of you. We would like to keep you informed of these potential pitfalls and what we are doing to circumvent them. First off, there are risks associated with the manufacturing of any hardware product. The process of mass production is very different than that of prototype development. Secondly, there are risks associated with the logistics to physically deliver the Omega to you.

Last but not least, we want you to know this: what we value the most is our relationship with you, our supporters.
