Internet of Things Academy
London, United Kingdom Website
"The internet-of-things has a huge potential to empower users, but could easily end up widening the divide between more technologically literate users and those intimidated or outpaced by new technology. We are looking to address this issue by building a platform that fosters a real sense of community with active moderators, project curation and rolling community challenges. A comprehensive set of tutorials provides a gentle point of entry, allowing potential users to quickly prototype test projects that could actually do something fun or useful. Ultimately, our aim is to augment a relatively neutral learning platform with people, encouraging an active and community-minded user base to give a human face to projects with real technical complexity."

IOTA: Internet-of-Things Academy
This video lays out the vision behind IoTA: To inspire a generation to use the power of the internet-of-things to tackle global challenges through an open, accessible web platform.
Forum for the Future and Superflux are now looking to take it to the next step and build a Beta version. If you are interested in supporting the project we'd love to hear from you.
