Connected things collect data. That data plus ANALYTICS allow businesses to target you relentlessly with ads and information that may or may not be personally relevant -- all based on your similarity to other people
Takes a different path, with services and products that make experiencing your connected world PERSONAL and RESPONSIVE
THE XOBXOB SERVICE
WHAT'S THIS SERVICE ABOUT?
XOBXOB's vision includes both products and services to help build a personal and responsive connected world. The XOBXOB service allows Makers and product developers to easily experiment with connected devices using Arduino microcontrollers. You can use other microcontroller platforms as well through XOBXOB's RESTful API.
HOW DOES THE SERVICE WORK?
XOBXOB simply allows you to create small hubs in the cloud (XOBs) . Things connect with these XOBs to be smart.
Currently, there a single type of XOB -- a message XOB. By sharing the same message XOB,
things can send messages to each other.
WILL THERE BE OTHER XOB TYPES?
In the future, we may expand our service with different types of XOBs that support the development of smart networks of devices. We're still thinking this through and will have more information later.
OK, HOW DO I GET STARTED?
First, sign up for an account (look in the top menu). Next, check out the tutorials, below. You can also download the XOBXOB Arduino library from GitHub. Then, make and connect something!
WHAT ABOUT THE RESTFUL API?
XOBXOB supports a RESTful API. There's some information about the API in the forum. Also, feel free to email XOBXOB support with questions.
WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE?
If you're looking for more information about XOBXOB, start in the Forums. If you don't find what you need, post your question. Communicating through the forum is preferred because it adds information for everyone. But, you can also email XOBXOB support.

WHAT'S WITH THAT CRAZY NAME?
If you've read this far, you totally deserve an explanation. So, flip XOBXOB (pronounced zob-zob, BTW) sideways and you have BOXBOX. It's, like, well, two connected boxes. Sweet, huh?
