Linkio Allows Any Electronic To Be Turned Into A Smart Device And Controlled Via Smartphone

Honegger and his colleagues have designed their system to be completely open- enabling developers to create new modules, essentially making Linkio completely customizable. All developers need to create additional modules is the inexpensive Developer Pack, which is currently available for 79 on the Kickstarter page(each additional individual Developer Pack is available for 10).

Consumers will be able to check the status of every product connected to Linkio via the Smartphone app- this means no longer worrying about whether or not the hair straightener is turned off. Linkio also allows users to set up "scenarios" or scheduled actions. For example, parents can ensure kids get their homework done by having all electronics shut off during study time- without ever being present in the house.

Honegger has set the funding goal at 50,000- once the campaign reaches this goal, he and his colleagues will be able to complete the certification process for Linkio as well as mass produce and ship the product. Some of the first campaign backers will be able to get the entire Linkio system for just 79.

Linkio will be running its Kickstarter campaign for the next 30 days. To learn more or to preorder the device, visit the campaign page here:
