The Contiki operating system, known for its super-slim IPv6 stack, has been updated to version 2.7 with support for new Systems-on-a-Chip: single-chip devices with a microprocessor and an integrated 2.4 GHz radio. This new version has a much strengthened IPv6 wireless mesh networking setup that allows a bunch of chips to autonomously form wireless networks that can be connected directly to the Internet.

Mesh networking

I didn't know Contiki had mesh networking.

That's cool.

But at first glance it doesn't look like it is interoperable with any other mesh networking protocol.

That is unfortunate.

Well, there is still a lot of research in the field. So maybe that is OK at this point.
