SmashToast was featured on a WICS spot recently highlighting the incubator in downtown Springfield, Innovate Springfield, where we have an office that acts as a nerve center for our operations.
Innovate Springfield is a great collaborative environment that functions similarly to T-Rex in St. Louis, a co-working space SmashToast is also a part of. One of the most important aspects of a co-working space is the ability to get a different perspective from a fellow entrepreneur. The lifestyle is so demanding and often in the early stages the unknowns can be scary, so being able to commiserate with someone that understands the entrepreneurial struggles can be the difference between a good day and a bad one.
So proud to part a part of the action!

It’s been a bit quiet on the media front, but busy as ever behind the closed doors. So what’s been happening?
The iOS beta process was a success. All the feedback let to a complete rebuild of the app and we are preparing public release to the App Store as I type this post!
The Puck hardware is in production, with a few slight changes to the firmware and board. Expected shipment is mid-October.
Some more cool news – we have been selected to exhibit at Eureka Park at CES in January! The Consumer Electronics Show is the biggest technology conference on the planet, so it’s a huge honor to have space at Eureka Park, which is the startup showplace at the conference.

SmashToast was lucky enough to be in the WICS ABC Channel 20 spotlight recently! As part of her “Made in Illinois” series, reporter Maggie Poteau interviewed CEO and founder Barnabas Helmy in as the beta units were being shipped out late 2015.
Maggie got to see where it all started in the basement of Helmy’s home and also got a demonstration of the beta unit in action.
Puck is designed, developed, manufactured and assembled in the Midwest. The hardware is built by CCK Automations in Jacksonville, Illinois and Maggie included an interview with Greg Serfling, who has worked closely with the SmashToast team.
