A tiny USB stick that runs JavaScript - control things in the real world in just seconds!

The Espruino Pico is a tiny USB stick that runs JavaScript code (it doesn't need to be plugged into a computer). You can program it with nothing but a serial terminal program, but there's also an IDE that runs in the Chrome Web browser. It's got a syntax highlighted editor as well as a graphical programming language.

Once you've uploaded code, you can inspect and change variables (including functions!) while your program is running.

There's loads of documentation, tutorials and support for a huge range of different hardware too.

Why did you make it?

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!
