Hornbill is a development platform for the Internet of Things. It’s a set of hardware tools, firmware, and templates for local and cloud-based apps for controlling your project. It’s for makers, engineers, and small companies who want to build secure and robust network-connected things at a fraction of the cost of other platforms.
Hornbill helps you build better prototypes with affordable, secure, and feature-rich hardware based on solid firmware and Open Source, platform-agnostic app and cloud-based software.
The core objective of the Hornbill project is to develop tools that are open, reliable, and consistently supported and expanded over time. We believe the real value in connected things lies in use cases that provide real insights, that help conserve resources, and that reduce costs.
The aim is not to build yet another IoT platform, but to use the best of open tools to help you build a solution, the way current web technologies work.
Hornbill hardware empowers you to build better prototypes. Hornbill hardware was built to serve our prototyping needs, so we are confident it will serve you well. It’s time to get rid of loose wires, double-sided tape, and tin cans!
Hornbill ESP32 dev is breadboard-friendly dev board with tons of features. You can build your next connected thing with just this one board.
We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
The background. . .
If you're going through an Electronics Engineering Program in India, or have already done; you'll know what 'practical engineering' is about! It is all about rote learning and mugging complex equations and theories. Yes, of-course there are few exceptional colleges. We knew that this is not the case, electronics is definitely not boring! In-fact, we when did our final year engineering project, it was quite a revelation. It is fun stuff, it can give you goosebumps, it can bring a lot of joy. We turned our college lab into junkyard in those 6 months. There were few people turning out to do stuff on their own, and we had complete control over proceedings! In-fact we bunked classes and were at the lab for how much ever time we could.
The story. . .
Then we moved into our jobs for a couple years after engineering and found out that it was no fun as it used to be in the lab! In the mean time though we were building stuff, learning to design Hardware, coding and hacking all the way. We started to think if we could change the way, things are taught and learned, could we contribute and make electronics learning a little more fun? We could we help people build stuff? and thus was Explore Embedded born!
With the same spirit we intend to make awesome tutorials, build development kits which are open to learning and hacking and enable you the makers to build!
