MESH was originally an indiegogo project. It is a simple way to use a main app as a central hub to program and connect MESH blocks (IoT devices and sensors) to the internet.
According to TechCrunch, “The team behind Mesh notes on its Indiegogo campaign page that it is ‘a small team of passionate engineers at Sony’s seed acceleration program.’ Sony formed a new business unit focused on fast-tracking new projects that don’t fit the mould of its existing businesses.”
From the MESH Getting Started Section
If you’re interested in the Internet of Things, MESH is a go-to tool for tinkering, prototyping, building, and customizing devices. MESH IoT blocks are designed with everyone in mind, so you can skip the programming and circuitry with our visual coding app or hack away with our SDK.
Each IoT block is a wireless sensor or module with built-in functions to make it easy to prototype and build projects for the Internet of Things.
Price $39.99 (one block)
Prices range from $39.99 - $59.99, choice of seven individual different blocks, or higher prices (but lower per each block) for kits.
