Design Consultation Offer: Two technologies that will change the world


Technology is rapidly changing the way we live. More importantly, Internet of Things (IoT) is changing or will change the way we do things – from our fridge ordering milk before the one inside expires to our washing machine sending us a message that it’s done – these are just some of the innovations we’re expecting to see sooner rather than later.

That being said, here at Gumstix we’re also revolutionizing how innovators prototype their IoT with Geppetto. It is our online design-to-order tool. It allows engineers and makers to design a custom expansion board or carrier board into their specifications. Just drag-drop and connect your processors to your sensors to your LEDs among other things you might need. wrote a blog post about Geppetto and IoT entitled, Two technologies that will change the world.

Not only that, we are running a promo with them. We will offer all TurboCAD readers 1.5 hours of free design consultation. Learn more on their blog post!
