WiPy is an excellent device for those who know Python (or want to learn) and it’s designed to easily connect to home networks. The board doesn’t draw much power while crunching numbers — only about 14mA — and can drop into a super low-power hibernation state drawing just 5µA. With up to 25 GPIO pins, the WiPy can handle a good number of environmental sensors and actuators.
Why To Buy
The WiPy is a great board if you want to actuate peripherals — motors, LEDs, relays — using Python. It’s also a solid choice as a Python sandbox: a self-contained computational device that interprets Python natively. When you add in the fact that there is native WiFi support, this is a great little device to start your computer programming hobby.
We'll assume you're ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish.
