ESP8266 became known as a cheap Wi-Fi chip.

ESP8266 is known as a cheap Wi-Fi chip that must be used in conjunction with other microcontrollers. But the story from the CPU that is strong enough and the way ESP opens the specification for external developers to access later, we see the ROMs from external developers that can be used more conveniently than acting as an extra module. digiStump, the developer of the Digispark using the AVR chip, previously turned to developing the Oak platform using the ESP8266 chip

Oak boards set on KickStarter at $ 13 per board. It is not interesting when compared to a board from China at a price of less than $ 3, but the advantage of Oak is that digiStump will prepare software for another 25 board, similar to Arduino that supports a large number of child boards. Thus we do not waste time connecting basic equipment such as monitors or sensors. In addition, digiStump will provide RootCloud services to manage Oak nodes via the web, develop firmware, upload new firmware, and store values ‚Äč‚Äčthat Can be obtained from the sensor directly into the cloud

DigiStump promises that after the project is completed, it will open the firmware code, hardware, along with the server version for the Raspberry Pi. In the future, we will not be able to put the firmware on the cheap board. But if anyone wants to support the project, go to buy at KickStarter.
