This is a small dev board I designed to make experimenting with and deploying the ESP8266 ESP-03 modules a bit easier. As well as breaking out all the pins to 2.54mm headers it has a position to fit either a DS18B20 temperature sensor or a DHT22 temperature/humidity sensor plus the required pull up resistor. It can be powered from 3.3V or 5V+* if the regulator is fitted and there is a footprint for a micro USB connector if required.

One of the main problem in battery powered projects is to choose/use the proper battery size/model/type. As market is flooded now with a lot of low quality batteries claiming thousands of mAh ( Ultrafire fakes stories is just an example) the only way to proper check them is to run a set of tests.
A simple basic tester that will be able to monitor over the entire battery lifetime at least few parameters like, voltage, current, power consumption and stored energy between charges can give you valuable informations about the parameters and health of the battery. And of course also you can see how are looking the numbers against the datasheet claims :).

This is a magic box which will let you monitor the power consumption of your house from anywhere on the Internet! It measures both true power (Watts) and apparent (VA) power, it keeps a running total of electricity units used, and measures mains frequency as a bonus.
The project uses a Particle Core(*) module – a little board with an ARM microprocessor and a Wi-Fi interface – to do all the hard work. To build it, you’ll need to be able to solder and follow a simple circuit diagram. At UK prices, total parts cost should be no more than £50.

Baoshi of DigitalMe wrote an article detailing his ESP8266 (ESP-07/12) Full I/O Breadboard adapter, that is available at Github:
The rise of the ESP8266 WiFi chip was almost overnight with Espressif’s open approach and pushing from Hackaday. While no ground-breaking product has yet emerged, the development on the chip are phenomenon. However due to an unknown reason the ESP8266 modules manufacture seems to prefer non-standard 2.0mm pitch connector, which gives a lot of headache to breadboarding lovers like me. This forced me to make a breadboard friendly ESP8266 breakout board.
The modules I’m targeting are ESP-07 and ESP-12, both having identical pinout but only differ in antenna type. I choose these two because they have all the I/O available, and using same edge castellation (half vias) connectors which is easy to work with.

This is an WIFI-based appliance module using the ESP8266 (ESP12) and a latching relay. The appliance module is powered from the AC line using an inexpensive 5V 1AMP universal input power supply which is attached to the board. There are provisions for local control using a pushbutton switch, and there is an option for a WIFI status LED. The firmware is written in C and the appliance module is controlled using MQTT and JSON.

The IoT development platform that runs Python in real time, and features the perfect blend of power, friendliness and flexibility.
A small, super low power, inexpensive, and 100% Python programmable IoT development board. The WiPy takes the wireless freedom of WiFi and combines it with the power, flexibility, and ease of use of Python. We designed the WiPy from the ground up, with one goal in mind: “Let’s make IoT development fun both for beginners and professionals”.
- Inexpensive, small and breadboard friendly.
- Ultra low power (850uA with the WiFi connection active)
- 100% PYTHON PROGRAMMABLE.
- Lots of GPIOs, interfaces and peripherals.
- Powerful CPU and state of the art WiFi radio.

Wireless, Credit-Card sized, Android + Linux + Arduino™, Embedded Sensors, starting from $49. What else?
UDOO Neo embodies a new concept: a single board computer suitable for the Post-PC era:
- Like a Raspberry Pi, you can program it in any language and run a full Linux environment with graphic interfaces.
- You get all the simplicity of an Arduino-compatible board, thanks to the Cortex-M4 and the Arduino UNO pinout layout, with the possibility of adding most Arduino™ shields, actuators and sensors, both analog and digital.
- An incredible, smoothly-running Android 4.4.3, it gives you the possibility to build new Android-based smart devices.
- You get a wireless module: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n + BT 4.0 (Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy), because we hate cables.
- 9-axis motion sensors are embedded, to build your perfect drone/robot/3D printers/whatever or create new kinds of interactions with the real world.
- Open-source hardware: because we love to let you hack things or create new devices from scratch!
- Starting from $49!
