Makers, hobbyists and developers that enjoy building projects for the Internet of Things (IoT) may find a new Internet of Thing development board called the Esquilo worth more investigation.
The aim of the Esquilo is to make IoT development much simpler and provides users with a platform with built-in wireless connectivity together with a web-based IDE for easy program.
Watch the video below to learn more about the Esquilo Internet of Things development board that can be powered using a 5V 1.5 amp power source and is also compatible with Arduino shields and boards for easy expansion. Its creators explain a little more about its functionality and features:
“Esquilo is all about making it simple to create connected devices for the Internet of Things (IoT). Everything you need to develop is built-in to the Esquilo hardware. No cloud required. You get a complete development system in the palm of your hand. Just point your browser at Esquilo and go!
No cloud required. The web-based integrated development environment (IDE) is stored in Esquilo’s flash memory and served to your web browser by your Esquilo over Wi-Fi. There is no dependency on an external cloud site unlike other web IDEs. You do not need a connection to the Internet to program and debug your Esquilo, just a browser and a computer.
The web IDE includes a full source debugger that helps you find and fix software bugs in no time. You can click on the source code to set break points, step through code, add watch variables which dynamically update; and inspect the call stack for a function.”
The Esquilo project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $10,000 in pledges, so if you think Esquilo is something your Internet of Things project could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge from $39.
