IoT developer device commercially available following successful Kickstarter campaign
Thingsee, a manufacturer of developer devices and platforms, has announced the commercial availability of its Thingsee One device. Thingsee One is a smart developer device for Internet of Things (IoT) application and solution development.
The device is designed for the easier and faster deployment of new IoT applications and services at a fraction of the current cost.
Unlike other developer devices on the market, such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino, Thingsee One is ready for immediate use and is both weatherproof and impact resistant. Developers can use the product to design and implement IoT applications without the need to invest in expensive, time consuming hardware.
Thanks to its robust structure, wide variety of fully programmable sensors, including an accelerometer, magnetometer and humidity, temperature and pressure sensors, and extensive cellular connectivity, Thingsee One is an ideal host for a multitude of different applications. With a battery life lasting up to one year, the device’s capabilities are extensive.
Thingsee One is already being used globally by multiple companies and project groups, including large companies like Cisco Systems. Cisco Systems is using Thingsee One for prototyping new IoT concepts. A smaller team using the device is GPS-Speedsurfing.com, which has used the device to develop complex new applications.
“Cost and complexity can now no longer prevent IoT ideas and innovation becoming reality,” said Pasi Jokinen, Thingsee’s CEO. “This product is the start of the democratisation of IoT development.”
Thingsee One was first introduced to the market via a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign run in late 2014. The manufacture of the device began in Finland in July this year, and the first shipments are about to be distributed.
The company is also launching Thingsee Creator, a visual programming tool, as a public beta. Creator enables the creation of prototypes and new practices in just minutes.
Thingsee One devices can be purchased via Thingsee’s online store.
