Danish company monoLit has launched a campaign to raise 500,000 DKK (53,000 GBP) for their handy sized Internet of Things computer designed to help connect electronics to the internet and provide a touch screen to control them.
Mono comes complete with WIFI and Bluetooth and is small enough to strap anywhere. The device is what you make of it, really, but to get you started there are some free apps included: weather, a calendar, accelerometer logging, an alarm clock, a clock, a temperature sensor reporting to your phone, a Philips Hue remote and an app to report on local bus or train times.
To program Mono you’ll need to know a bit of C++, but their SDK should make life easier. Uploading programs to the device can be done via the standard Arduino IDE and being internet enabled it can be connected to switching services like IFTTT making it even more of a breeze to edit.
