Open Hardware and Software
Make hardware research, understand the schematic, and improve it. Use as a platform for fast prototyping.
Arduino IDE, VS code/PlatformIO, MicroPython, and LUA compatible
Learn to code. Check all the ESPboy opensource software, improve it. Write your own applications in standard IDEs using a wide range of compatible libraries. Visual programming & firmware constructors
If you are new in coding, but full of ideas, try to draw your first program or use online program constructor just selecting options or moving blocks: scratch.mit.edu, visuino, fl-prog, wifi-iot, mysensors.org
Update the firmware in a minute, using WiFi and selecting the App from the list right on the ESPboy. No programming, buggy libraries, compilation, fighting the bugs, and wires. Little Game Engine web dev-kit, Arduboy library port & ZX Spectrum, CHIP8/SCHIP, Game Boy emulators
Make your first game in a few hours using online web Little Game Engine IDE with the help of community, documentation, and samples. Play retro old games the youth of your parents, touch the most famous platforms of the past, learn how emulation works. Explore the world of Arduboy: platform, community, and games.
Extension connector & gadget modules
All useful interfaces on the expansion connector: I2C, SPI, I2S, UART, ADC, few MCU GPIOs and additional GPIOs from the MCP23017 GPIO expander. Connect and control anything you want. The ideal prototyping mobile platform to test and improve your digital ideas. Turn your ESPboy to the fully functional gadget in a minute with a standard expansion module or make your unique. MP3 player, GSM phone, FM radio, GPS navigator, LORA messenger, DAC AY38910 player, radiation meter, weather station. Play with it, understand the hardware, software, protocols, interfaces, create another one.
Pen-testing and offensive security modules
Research the protocols and make penetration tests of communication networks and security systems. WiFi attacks, storing your office cards RFID/NFC with it's reading and emulation, storing iButton keys, remote control of the 433Mhz barriers, and garage doors, use as a universal IR remote control all of your devices, use as U2F security token and play with BAD-USB payloads.
Internet of things and online services & mobile phone integration
Learn the world of IoT. Connect the home automation sensors and actuators. Control them all or make the ESPboy one of them. Using WiFi onboard, get the data from the net, provide remote wireless control and monitoring of your home, send telemetry data to the online databases and services like www.thingspeak.com, www.cloudmqtt.com, cloud.google.com, www.hivemq.com Take control of your ESPboy and other devices, connected to it with your smartphone. We are supporting blynk.io and RemoteXY.com
There is WiFi onboard. But thanks to attachable modules to expansion connector, you can attach any transceiver: HC-11 for UART 433Mhz (excellent to control your robot or rover), CC1101 for 315/433/868Mhz (for controlling garage doors and barriers), NRF24le01 for 2.4Ghz, HC-06 for Bluetooth, LORA modules and so on. The great thing that there is a huge quantity of open-source libraries for Arduino IDE so you can compile the included example and test the module just after the connection. No need to learn the datasheet and then do low-level programming.
Try electronics and programming a fun way and get kids interested, hack the world or impress it with your creativity.
