Ångström Linux logo

What's with Kinoma Studio "borrowing" the compass logo from the Ångström Linux distribution?

I also have a disconnect with calling Eclipse IDE "seriously easy" :-)

JMO/YMMV

I remeber reading that kinoma was fast and need lower power. If it's true , it could mean  embedded products will be created in javascript. That would be interesting.

@alex_m1, I think it is exactly the point that Peter Hoddie is making in this announcement.

alex_m1 - You've got it. We have been delivering consumer products for major brands using JavaScript for over a decade. Kinoma Create is our way of putting the latest generation of our work in the hands of makers, developers, and designers. Creating products in JavaScript is a lot of fun. We'll be postng early projects built with Kinoma Craete on our Indiegogo campaign page in the coming days and weeks.

@betajet Great products often find inspiration from similar sources. :) As for Eclipse, I suppose it is all perspective - but an IDE that puts everything in one place - editor, debugger, profiler, packager, docs, samples - really helps. We'll be publishing video tutorials shortly to introduce Kinoma Studio and Eclipse to people coming to it for the first time.

Phoddie,thanks, i'll follow indiegogo.

BTW ,what kind of ram/flash/bom cost is needed for basic kinoma device (since i'm assuming the kit is much higher than the minimum)?

@alex_m1 Kinoma Create has 128 MB of RAM and 16 MB of ROM. But, you are correct that we can run with considerably less than that. For example, when we introduced Kinoma Play for Windows Mobile (many years ago!) those phones only had a couple MB of free RAM shared between all applications, and our JavaScript engine worked very well there.

@phoddie: this sound really great. I'm sure many makers could build great stuff with something like this.

Does this mean that marvell will also have a distribution channel fit for makers(i.e. 500-1000 qty, easy way to buy samples, easy way to get price quotes) ?

@alex_ma I'm looking forward to seeing what makers create - the touch screen alone opens up many possiblities. Good question on the "distribution channel fit for makers." That's something my team is working on, so it is easy to move beyond the Kinoma Create prototype. If you have preferences or thoughts on how that should work so we best support makers, please let me know.

@phoddie: The best place to ask is at reddit.com/r/hwstartups a community for hardware startups people.

This is also a good summary of the problems(including the discussion):

http://gigaom.com/2014/03/11/the-new-generation-of-hardware-startups-needs-a-different-kind-of-chip-company/

Also i heard that getting access to touch screens(at a decent price) is quite hard.

Another  thing i hope there be in the future is some sort of design reuse of scehmatic+pcb , like they have in circuits.io or PADS from mentor.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
