Break Out: Kickstarter Launchparty of Marvin – the LoRa Developer board for the Internet of Things

November 3, 2016, 17:30 - 19:15

Let’s get this party started!

Everybody is talking about Internet of Things, billions of IoT devices, the next billion dollar business, but where to start? Introducing Marvin: the LoRA developer board. With this developer board you can make your own IoT device within one hour!

We’re from RDM Makerspace and together with our partners from the IoT Academy we help people to create their own Internet of Things application. To do our best to help as many people as we can to get started, we created a tool that does the work for us; the Marvin developer board. Marvin is easy to use, arduino based, plug and play grove sensor compatible and works with the KPN LoRa network. Yes, LoRa, the new standard for Internet of Things solutions. There are various communication protocols available nowadays and we think that LoRa is just another, yet a very useful addition to the connectivity scheme. Long Range Low Power is what marks the development of IoT.

We need your help!
We want to lower the barrier to technology not only by making it easier, but also by lowering the cost. That’s why we will launch a kickstarter so we can produce the Marvin in big numbers, driving down costs, which we will benefit you as a backer of our project.

Join us the 3rd of November where we will launch our Kickstarter at Venture Cafe @ CIC Rotterdam.

17:30 Walk in
18:00 Launch Kickstarter
18:15 Start Hands-on LoRa Workshop

As a bonus we will:

1. Provide an exclusive free class Hands-On LoRa from 18:15 till 19:15.

2. If you back us on Kickstarter during the event, you will get the Marvin board on the spot! (limited availability!)

See you then! The RDM Makerspace team
