Industry 4.0: crowdfunding rewarded devices by Zerynth, a startup of UniPisa

Great crowdfunding success for Zerynth: a technological startup set up by four researchers from the University of Pisa.

The startup has “cleaned out” the famous Kickstarter crowdfunding platform thanks to the partnership with Redbear, the manufacturer of  “Nano 2” and “Blend 2” mini-chips for Industry 4.0.

In only three days on Kickstarter, Zerynth has achieved the target budget of $20,000 to fund a very small, very low-energy consumption Bluetooth device, the size of a 5 cent coin, which will lead to the development of an extremely wide range of solutions for the Internet of Things: from the so-called wearable products, like smart bracelets, to solutions for monitoring and controlling systems for industry, retail and logistics.

This achievement, which will allow to start the manufacturing of this device in January, adds up to the positive results obtained by the startup since its launch last year. In particular, Zerynth technology aims to simplify and speed up the development of smart solutions through programming of microcontrollers and sensors in Python, one of the programming languages currently most spread and efficient.
