Ninja Blocks are tiny cloud enabled computers that can sense their environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors & can affect their surroundings by controlling lights, power sockets, and other actuators.
At the heart of Ninja Blocks is an Open Hardware philosophy that makes our
electronics schematics, case designs and source code available to developers and students so that they can learn from them and submit suggestions and modifications.
The Ninja Blocks mission is to enable real interoperability in the fledgling world of the Internet of Things.
Notes: Following on from their highly successful crowdfunded Ninja Block series the team made a big splash in 2013 with the follow-up offering “Sphere” raising over $700,000 in crowdfunding.
