Sony’s IoT Kit Facilitates Connected Mini-Inventions In Minutes
MESH Canvas lets users invent smart projects via a visual design app and functional tags
A team of engineers at Sony’s Seed Acceleration Program, MESH, have developed a creative DIY platform that makes it fast and easy for people to create their own connected smart projects.
