In the quest to improve Meshcentral, no challenge is to tall and today thanks for lots of help from my group, I am presenting pictures and video of the first ever Intel® Galileo tower! A cluster of 16 Intel® Galileo devices assembled into unique tower design using a simple and elegant 3D printed part. The resulting devices is just as impressive to see as the software running on it. The design came out of necessity when my group had ordered late last year 15 more Intel Galileo devices. For people who don’t know, these little computer are designed around an Intel® Quark processor and are perfect for many different projects what require the smarts of an Intel processor in a small package. It’s used to build all sorts of things and is one of the building blocks for the Internet-of-things.
Meshcentral.com announced support for Intel® Galileo boards last year and since then, we made improvements and pushed out Mesh agent updates to the public. In the quest to continue improving Meshcentral to make it and outstanding solution for the Internet-of-things, I am enlisting the help of this new tower. Designed in less than 2 weeks, the 16 Intel Galileo devices are arranged in a circular tower with the network and power cables going thru the center for perfect cable management. For people with 3D printers, the part is available openly on Thingiverse. I made a first quick YouTube video about the tower.

The tower was fully designed using Blender ahead of time. A virtual
Intel Galileo board was used to make the design fit correctly.
With outstanding software to go with the hardware, the Mesh agent forms a peer-to-peer
network within the tower and allows for secure messaging and scalable Internet control.
