The XYO Bridge is Raspberry Pi 3 with a custom case and MicroSD card which is formatted with the correct software to collect bound witnesses from the Sentinel and send the data to a Diviner server. The bridge is basically a middle-man between your devices and requires little power to operate. It should be noted that the original XYO network which passes data from the Sentinel to the bridge, diviner and ultimately the archivist is still in development but when completed will reward users for their participation.
