Imagination Technologies Crowdfunding IoT Dev Kit

Guest Author








Here's yet another IoT development kit, but this one is being developed as a Kickstarter project by Imagination Technologies, maker of MIPS processors. They are hoping to raise £20,000 which is about $30,199.

Here's a quote:

 Why does Imagination need to 
go down the crowdfunding
route? It’s more about
wanting to tap its target
dev community during the
product development phase,
says Imagination's Alexandru
Voica.
"Using Kickstarter allows us
to directly communicate with
the maker community, start-ups
and individuals interested in
new dev kits and get their
opinion on how and what we can
improve..."

So, if Imagination Technologies is just using Kickstarter to "communicate" with the developers of the maker community, they don't need the 30 G's, right? And, that means they can give away their IoT Dev Kit for free to the maker community, right? What better way to "communicate"?
