This product is no longer available for sale. The seller may be offering an improved version or it may be hanging out on the beach, enjoying the retired life.
We'll be at Embedded World in Nuremberg from 16 Feb to 1st March. Anything ordered during that time will ship on the 2nd.
Once you've uploaded code, you can inspect and change variables (including functions!) while your program is running.
I was amazed at how difficult it was to get started with (and then to debug) most Microcontrollers (especially ARMs), and the lack of support for different platforms. I thought that by putting the development tools on the device itself I could come up with a microcontroller board that could be programmed easily from almost any kind of computer.
Not only that, but your source code is on the board itself. If you make something with an Espruino board and need to change it a year later, your original code is still there waiting for you!
I recently launched the Pico on KickStarter, but while manufacturing the 4000 boards a significant amount of them suffered superficial damage, and I didn't feel happy sending them out to backers who had pledged for a 'perfect' board.
These are those damaged boards. On the edge furthest from the USB connector, the PCB is slightly damaged near the pins (as seen in the pictures). This does not affect the functioning of the board and everything still works perfectly. The last pin on the board may just be very slightly weaker than it would be otherwise, so you'll want to be a bit more careful when pulling these Pico boards out of breadboard.

We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
I've been making things for as long as I can remember, and first programmed a microcontroller around 20 years ago. For the last 4 years I've been working full-time, supporting and improving both the Espruino firmware and boards.
