As a company, our goal has always been to make it easier for people to develop ideas into products as easily and smoothly as possible. To that end, we’re working on new hardware which should improve that process.
We’re still working out the finer points of the design, but you can expect a product announcement around the end of February.
Here are some of the points we’re working on addressing with the new hardware:
- Node.js / IO.js compatibility
- JS execution speed
- Wifi stability
- Ability to embed the board in a product
We’d love your feedback on any particular specs you’d like to see in new hardware. Our module ecosystem and APIs will be forward-compatible with new products.
If you’re currently developing a hardware product, on Tessel or another platform, we’d like to talk to you and make sure our next product fits your needs. Please email us and we’ll set up a call.
If you’re in the Bay Area, we’d like to invite you to drop by our Berkeley office and try some hands-on user testing. Please email us and let us know if you’re interested!
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Kelsey, Kwyn, Ken, Jon, Eric, Jia, Tim, and Kevin
