We are reviving several projects, chief among these is our wearable IoT data acquisition platform. This system will combine several new and exciting wearable technologies, all working together in one unified platform, to collect and transmit data in real time from the wearer to server and client-side applications.

Here you can see the FreeIMU-based IMUduino board, which is being utilized in the prototyping stages. As you can see, the IMUduino has a very small footprint but it also offers 10 degrees of Freedom (10DoF), Bluetooth LE (4.0), and an Atmel Mega32U4. A great IoT prototyping platform.

Take a look at the video for a quick example of real time orientation rendering from the IMU data. Please note: this board was fresh off the line, without calibration. There is a bit of drift and delay with the uncalibrated unit, but it is still a great representation of the applications of the 3D IMU data for wearable devices.
Plans are already underway to advance our designs using smaller, more precise, and more efficient wearable modules yet to be released. Stay tuned!

dijit is a small company with big ideas, and we are dedicated to developing these ideas into amazing products. In order to make these products a reality, we are pursuing every possible avenue to help get these ideas off the ground. We received enough votes to be considered for a Chase Mission Main Street Grant, and we are eagerly awaiting news of the 12 grant recipients for that program. Recipients will be announced in January. We also entered our hackerspace initiative, Hack Local, into a start-up competition and the results of that program will also be announced by the end of January. We are also working on a project that could potentially qualify for STEM grants. In the coming weeks we will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for a new product, “The Ripper” (working name), a DVD and Blu Ray ripper that will allow anyone to digitize their movie library and stream for home use. We are trying an old business method known as “throw everything at the wall and see what sticks”. Once we get one of our many products and projects off the ground we will have the resources to bring the others to market. January will be a big month for dijit and we appreciate all the support we have received thus far. Please stay tuned, spread the word, and get excited for the awesomeness 2014 will bring!
