Ryan Simmons / 2 years ago
A company that goes by the name of Spark has announced it’s Photon board, a $19 device that makes adding Wi-Fi connectivity to electronics easier.
The board is being marketed to people making their own gadgets who want a much more efficient and less technically demaning way to get them connected to the internet. The little board contributes to the idea of “the internet of things”, making anything and everything connected. The company, that grew out of successful Kickstarter campaign, is calling the device “the next Raspberry Pi”, as it believes it will be used by the same sorts of people – educators, artists, designers, children and tinkerers.
