    Seebo Virtualizes the "Things" of the "Internet of Things" to Accelerate the Transformation to the Connected World

    SAN FRANCISCO, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Seebo, a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, dedicated to helping companies plan, develop and integrate smart and connected products across a variety of industries, has announced today the launch of its new virtualized hardware environment, the "Simulator" as part of its new IoT Creator – empowering manufacturers and developers to reduce cost per unit and accelerate the introduction of smart products to the market.

    The IoT environment is rigid, firm and complicated involving sensors and hardware components. Seebo eliminates this complexity, transforming the new physical parts introduced by the "Internet of Things" into virtual and simple to work with through cutting edge hardware virtualization technology. The virtualized environment eliminates the need to code against actual hardware and brings product and developer teams into the IoT fold empowering them to build smart products quickly and easily while reducing costs. As a result, developers can build smart applications that can operate hardware, without acquiring new skills or tools.

    "The IoT revolution is taking place right now, and many manufacturers are struggling to remain relevant in today's smart and connected world," said Lior Akavia, CEO of Seebo. "Building IoT products can be complicated, expensive and risky. It is a comprehensive task to coordinate the world of hardware, sensors, software, firmware, PCBA factories, mobile apps, cloud and security – while integrating them into a smart, connected product. Seebo bridges that gap for manufacturers by providing the resources, skills and tools to easily and seamlessly incorporate IoT technology thus helping them to create or revitalize products and manufacturing processes for our connected world."

    Seebo's IoT Creator allows manufacturers to ideate and explore smart features in the virtualized environment – giving them the ability to acquaint themselves with a variety of hardware components and their costs. Seebo's IoT Creator has a unique proprietary algorithm that matches the right hardware combinations based on product concept, design and other technical specifications. The platform automatically configures the SDKs, Simulator, IoT dev kit, and testing application, allowing long, labor intensive and complex IoT planning and development tasks to become short, easy and flexible.

    "There are thousands of developers who are struggling with IoT applications development given the complexity of sensor related coding," says Jeremy Padawar, Co-President/Partner, Wicked Cool Toys. "Seebo has solved this complexity through its simulator, which provided our developers an incredibly agile one-stop shop environment. While producing our smart device with Seebo we experienced dramatic utility in both the speed to market, and the integrated iterative approach of design, development and testing."
