Aiko is a collection of protocol specifications, along with specific server and client implementations that are designed to enable an Internet of Things.  With the creation of open-source hardware devices, such as the Arduino microcontroller and OpenWRT routers, it is possible to inexpensively customise and deploy an extensive range of devices that can flexibly interact with each other.

This web-site aggregates a variety of software and hardware projects (along with repositories, forums, blogs) that comprise a distributed system based on the Aiko protocols.

This conceptual diagram highlights the pieces of the puzzle that are now available ...
