Let us introduce you to Hatsuhiko, a brand new test-marketing platform that brings the very latest innovations from within our Seed Acceleration Program (SAP) to the world. Not only can you have a peek at our very latest ventures, you can also share ideas and contribute feedback to the developers. It’s co-vision and co-creation on a global scale; innovation at it’s very best.

The first product launched on Hatsuhiko is MESH, now available for pre-order in Europe – it’s new tech allowing anyone to transform ordinary everyday objects into smart gadgets.

Instead of buying lots of smart devices, MESH allows you to build your own or integrate with other household objects via Bluetooth or WiFi. You can also use IFTTT to link to hundreds of connected home gadgets such as Amazon Echo, WeMo, Nest and apps like Gmail or Twitter. There’s no need for electronics or programming – simply drag-and-drop directly within the MESH app and get creative!

Already available in Japan and the United States, MESH will start shipping to Europe from May 2017 – so act quick, as the pre-order ends this week!
