Apio lets you create smart objects in five minutes, while its SDK guides you along the way. 
Apio is an open-source platform for the Internet of Things , which lets Makers and designers create their own smart systems and connected objects in a matter of minutes. The platform is comprised of two USB devices, the General and Dongle, both of which are based on an  ATmega256RFR2 and ATmega16U2 , along with a custom operating system and SDK.

The General is a low-cost, low-power board that communicates wirelessly with a Dongle. The Dongle is then tasked with connecting up to 65,000 General units, and through the Apio OS, controlling them via a mobile device or PC.

This allows for every board to “talk” with one another in a wireless mesh network. Apio makes it super easy for Makers to get started right out…
