Is an Internet of Things Operating System On the Way?

Jul 08, 2014

An OS for the Internet of Things may be on the way thanks to $4.9 million in funding for Spark Labs. According to Gigaom, the "Series A funding came from Lion Wells Capital, O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures, SOSventures, and Collaborative Fund as well as a consortium of strategic angel investors." Spark Labs is best known for having created a development board that allows users to create cloud-connected devices.

Spark Labs CEO Zach Supalla says he wants to use this round of funding to "build Spark OS, which will consist of a messaging framework, data storage options, an application layer and then finally a management layer for connected devices."
