Kinoma Create--launched today in a crowdfunding campaign--helps software developers become makers, makers tackle projects with less hassle, and designers prototype products faster
Kinoma Create includes the hardware needed to start creating connected consumer electronics and their companion apps. Kinoma Create integrates a power-efficient CPU; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity; a capacitive touchscreen; and numerous input/output options for external sensors, LEDs, and input devices. All this is enclosed in a stylish, adaptable case that makes projects portable, and adds polish to product prototype demonstrations.
Kinoma Create is a full hardware-software product expressly designed to help:
Early-adopters of Kinoma Create have been able to build interesting projects in just a few weeks:
"Kinoma Create is designed to be designed with—a tabula rasa for prototyping. It's flexible and facile, opening new paths to creating everything from personal tinkerings to my research projects to first cuts of new products for testing in our company. It feels inclusive, intuitive, and complete, yet ready to adapt for my (occasionally offbeat) ideas. I'm into rapid sensor integration, and Kinoma Create pushes the boundaries of how quickly I can evolve my projects to get feedback from my teams and users," said Valkyrie Savage, EECS PhD Student and co-founder of Savage Internet.
"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."
