Like we promised in the Zerynth and XinaBox partnership announcement, the XK12 IoT Starter Kit is now available for purchase with a Zerynth license already onboard.

An out-of-the-box device that is programmable with Zerynth – IoT developers all over the world will get a chance to experience this highly advantageous and fast tool for evaluating and prototyping.

This revolutionary IoT development kit will dramatically simplify building electronic devices. By combining modular electronics by XinaBox with an ecosystem of software tools in Python development time, speed to market, and costs will be vastly reduced.
