Aquila has been in the works for six months now, we are currently teaching to use the platform to the first users and developing the Hub UI.
The board designs (Altair and USB-Serial) are ready and we have already assembled the first batch. The firmware has the basic functionality finished, P2P communication, Actions, Events and Interactions are working correctly. We are planning on adding multi-hop packet sending and AES-128 security encryption.
The Hub interface is in a basic working state, you can control actions, see all the connected devices and configure interactions, However there are still some stability bugs to address. We are working on extending the hub and exposing an API so you can write your own customized App for your device, and also for connecting to web services such as weather and IFTTT.
