Wow. It’s been an amazing few days.
We announced our Kinoma Create campaign to the world yesterday.
And thanks to you—our early Creators, and in many cases friends—we’ve blown past our 40-day project goal.
Our team is at SXSW in Austin, and it’s been amazing to witness the reaction to Kinoma Create. We’ve been talking to Creators of all kinds, from makers, to professional designers, to front-end and back-end web developers who are itching to start making “things”. And the response has been as positive as we could’ve possibly hoped.
As SXSW winds down, you’ll be hearing lots more from us.
Some early-adopters of projects include:
Ultimate Aquarium Controller (Missouri) – Removable Wi-Fi system for keeping check of temperature, power consumption, salinity, water level, light, and pumps of aquariums.
Cowboys (Toronto) – Interactive game that tests the strength, intelligence and social media skills of players, as well as how much they’ve had to drink.
Reassuring Box (Tokyo) – Home monitoring system that gives piece of mind before leaving the house or going to sleep.
“Product engineers have been working on fragile development boards with complex embedded tools for too long. It’s time for a change. Kinoma Create is the next wave of hardware for developing consumer electronics,” commented Peter Hoddie, Marvell’s Kinoma VP. “We’ve rethought the developer experience from the outside in. Innovations in Kinoma Create’s case are just a hint at the software innovations inside. We’re launching Kinoma Create to help software developers, makers, and product prototypers bring their ideas to life.”
