Internet Things Toolkit Launched by Map and Sam Team
London-based creative consultancy Map, founded by Barber and Jay Osgerby, together with technology firm SAM have developed a toolkit, which is expected to make it easier to create Internet-connected products.
“There was no really easy way to create a product, an app, or a piece of art using electronics and coding,” Joachim Horn, SAM CEO, told Dezeen.
In addition to the digital software, the companies have been working together on the development of the physical modules, which include actors and sensors.
While the actors are responsible for outputs, including buzzers, motors and lights, the sensors ensure input, such as pressure sensors, buttons and thermometers.
The new toolkit is aimed at educating students and designers about the computer science and electronics.
