Smart home platform Wink has been acquired by will.i.am

Thuy Ong for The Verge:  Struggling smart home platform Wink has been acquired by lifestyle and technology company, i.am+, the company owned by musician and hit and miss (but mostly miss) tech entrepreneur will.i.am.

Wink has had a rocky existence, starting life as part of the failing tech incubator Quirky, only to be spun-off after Quirky went bankrupt. In an emailed statement, Wink said both the app and the Wink hub will continue to operate as before. “Our teams are in the process of coming together to shape our future roadmap and we can’t wait to share what we’re working on,” the company said. “The acquisition doesn’t change anything with regards to the Wink user experience.” The company said it would introduce new in-app features and partner integrations over the next few months.  Full Article:
