ESP8266 Tamagotchi is a electronic pet from the 90s. It can eat, shit, sleep and everything else what comme il faut pet should do.
Key component of the board is a Wemos ESP8266 mini board, that is connected to SSD1306 OLED screen with 128 by 64 pixels resolution (which is plenty, considering 32 by 16 resolution of the original). You can power it from two AAA batteries and take it with you.
