Well-connected: Horn devises gidgets to link objects and people (publicity pic)

SOMETHING being termed the internet of things is predicted to become  a trillion-dollar industry and a young firm in Haggerston may be at the heart of it.

Now Sam Labs, founded by Joachim Horn, is looking for three people to add to its present staff of 15.

The 24-year-old, who studied in Tokyo and London, says his firm is in an industry that is “going to connect objects to objects, people to people, and people to objects”.

He makes Sams, little white gizmos that contain tiny motors, lights, buttons, switches; pressure, motion and temperature sensors and servos. They can be controlled wirelessly by Bluetooth to link to everyday devices that have been chipped.

Horn launched Sam Labs last year 2014 to sell kits to engineering and coding by beginners. Having raised £126,000 by crowdfunding, he is expanding the business.

He is seeking:

* a firmware and hardware engineer;

* two full-stack software developers.

And the sales department needs an intern.
