Sapphire Open Systems announces the launch of a Kickstarter campaign today supporting Sapphire, a full stack, open source, low power, wireless mesh network platform for the Internet of Things. Funds will go toward initial hardware production and FCC certification.

The Sapphire core technology enables hobbyists, makers, and professionals to connect every device to any other device — lights, temperature, and motion sensors; Twitter; receipt printers, mobile devices, or databases, for example. Developed in response to inadequate available offerings, Sapphire integrates flexible, low cost hardware; a powerful embedded operating system; and a suite of network connectivity tools for top-to-bottom coverage. Sapphire is architected for security, scalability, and easy use while maintaining extremely low power profiles. Additionally, any Sapphire mesh network can be seamlessly established as a standalone network independent of the Internet.

The Sapphire open source philosophy means the entire codebase, all hardware designs, and demos are being released to developers with additional API documentation and design guides in the works. This maker-style philosophy made Kickstarter an appropriate release platform.

With features such as multi-hop routing; intelligent, low power management; and tightly integrated automation technology, Sapphire is poised to disrupt the Internet of Things by providing an enterprise-grade, yet open source and accessible, solution to a burgeoning market space. Sapphire provides all of the hardware and software necessary to build and connect Things, and everything from top to bottom is open source. Anyone can build their own Thing that can join the conversation.

To join the Sapphire open source community and engage with this new way of computing, visit the Sapphire Kickstarter campaign: http://kck.st/18W0JnB. The campaign will run until 3AM ET Friday, June 7, 2013.
