Particle (formerly Spark) is Heroku for hardware. We provide an easy-to-use platform for connected hardware that makes building WiFi-connected products dead simple.

We have two products:

The Spark Core is an open source development kit that adds Wi-Fi to any electronic product, and successfully launched on Kickstarter in May, 2013:

Raised: $567,968
Goal: $10,000

The Spark Cloud is the mothership that the Core and other Spark-powered products communicate with. The Spark Cloud provides a secure, reliable infrastructure for connected products and a REST API so products powered by Particle can be extended with apps and connected to other online services.

Particle is a U.S. company.
