Miniature Wireless Computer By Intelligent Electronics
February 11, 2015 17:41


The Russian company “Intelligent Electronics” collected the amount of money necessary to start the production of a miniature wireless computer of its own design via Kickstarter.

The surmounting of the mark of 25 thousand dollars was announced on the website of the crown-funding resource. Black Swift is a miniature wireless controller of the size of a five-rouble coin. The developers have shown it on the product presentation page that the use of a chip worth only $ 19 allows you to turn the ordinary speakers into wireless ones, to create a garland controlled from a smartphone and an electricity meter with the readings which can be monitored in real time, lying on the sofa in the living room.

The developers claim that Black Swift can be used for any “smart” devices and components of the Internet of things: from elementary turning-on of the kettle with a few touches of the phone screen to the integrated automation of home and office. The use of the OpenWRT operating system, that is similar to Linux, facilitates the selection of developers.

Oleg Artamonov responsible for marketing in “Intelligent Electronics” explained to “” what competitive advantages the device has in comparison with the minicomputer Intel Edison announced last year: “Black Swift is two times cheaper, which is important, because the power of Edison level is rarely needed in “smart” things. In addition, unlike the Intel minicomputer with its non-standard connector, the Russian novelty has a pair of popular micro USB ports”.

The project involved Alexander Nikitin whose previous three projects on Kickstarter collected $ 2 million. The Software Development Company is based in the “Dubna” special economic zone.
