WeIO - Platform for prototyping and producing connected objects, using the language of the Web

A session at Open World Forum 2013

  • Uroš Petrevski

Friday 4th October, 2013

9:45am to 10:30am (PMT)

WeIO is a wireless platform that enables rapid prototyping and easy development of connected objects, and thus opening the doors to Internet of Things those who are not necessarily low level electronics skilled programmers. In order to achieve that we had to shift the perspective a bit from ordinary approach in this domain. Although powered by Linux, WeIO does not insist in exposing Linux-like interfaces to the user. Instead it provides nice embedded application for development of beautiful web-based interfaces (frontend in Javascript/HTML5/CSS3) and/or backend logic (or mini programs) in pure Python.

There is zero installation, your object has everything already installed - just point your browser and develop and/or control!

WeIO advanced tools offer all the power of writing rich HTML applications that easily control electronics. No need for Linux system programming, cross compiling or low level hacking. WeIO is made with idea that users can concentrate on Design and Innovation! WeIO software and hardware are specially tailored to meet the needs of rapid prototyping and final product integration. It is based upon huge experience in physical computing and product design by Nodesign.net.

WeIO embraces FLOSS philosophy and is published under GPL Licence 3. WeIO is based on confirmed and robust Open Source technologies like OpenWRT Linux, Facebook Tornado, Twitter Bootstrap, jQuery and Python.

WeIO platform is developed and designed by Nodesign.net, Uros Petrevski and Drasko Draskovic.
