There will be about 20 billion devices connected by 2015, and around 50 billion devices by 2020, with predicted industry revenue of $19 trillion. We need a HW and SW platform that will enable rapid prototyping and creation of wirelessly connected objects that will make structure of Internet of Things. This platform should be easy to learn and inspiring to use. It should be also affordable and open source, so that it can become significant tool for the whole community.

To solve the problem of rapid prototyping for Internet of Things, we produced WeIO – an innovative hardware and software platform for easy creation of wirelessly connected objects. WeIO removes a burden of technically complex embedded and system software programming by adding layers of abstraction, making sophisticated object design easy and intuitive. WeIO empowers users in the way that they can focus on the design and innovation. WeIO consists of the development board that interacts with digital and analog I/O and a sophisticated WeIO IDE that is web based and accessed from the browser. All development tools are already provided on board – there is nothing to be installed on users PC.
