Toolset consists of multiple components, including the world’s first 64-bit quad embedded computer with built-in 4G/3G/2G
Blink’r, a start-up that designs hardware and software tools to empower and enable innovation for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced its “Internet in a module” toolset that aims to dramatically reduce development time for IoT applications.
At the same time, an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign is also underway to help bring the toolset to market.
The all-in-one development kit seeks to remove the barriers for rapid prototyping and development of IoT applications. As a result, the time to bring a connected device or IoT application to market can be reduced by months, even years, claims Blink’r.
The Blink’r toolset consists of multiple components, including what is thought to be the world’s first 64-bit quad embedded computer with built-in 4G/3G/2G.
It also features wi-fi/Bluetooth to connect to the Internet and rich peripherals to interface with the physical world. A seamlessly integrated, full-function cloud backend, visualisation dashboard, and multiple developments tools provide the resources for creating a wide range of innovative IoT applications.
Target applications for the Blink’r toolset include fog/edge computing devices, IoT gateways, fleet management, smart home security (smart locks), dashboard cameras, automobile navigation systems, drones, voice interface systems, cell phones, game consoles and much more.
The intuitive interface of the blink’r toolset means that it can be used by developers of varying skill levels, from the most experienced to the novice programmer, in individual or enterprise settings. Its ease of use also makes it perfect for use in educational environments.
“There are countless IoT applications just waiting to be developed and brought to market,” said Baoguo Wei, founder and CEO of Blink’r. “The all-inclusive Blink’r toolset allows developers to make their IoT dreams come true.”
The Blink’r toolset will range in price from $50 to $300, depending on the package.
