Spark is a platform for the Internet of Things.
Our first product, the Spark Core, is a tiny Wi-Fi development kit that helps engineers, designers, and Makers in the earliest stages of developing a connected hardware product. The Spark Core is a open source “fork” of Arduino, with integrated connectivity.
The Spark Core connects to the Spark Cloud, a cloud platform that provides a development environment, global access, and a REST API for all Spark-powered products.
The Spark Core launched on Kickstarter in May 2013, raising $567K from more than 5,000 developers and engineers. Spark began shipping to customers in December 2013, and now has thousands of developers creating products on their platform.
