Photon – A Wi-fi Microcontroller for $19
Dearest Spark friends,
Our new hardware is here! In case you’re not feeling the length of this post, here’s the short version:
- Today we’re launching our new development kit, the Photon! It’s the spiritual sequel to the Spark Core (backwards compatible), and it’s faster, better, and cheaper. You can pre-order it now for $19, and we’re targeting March 2015 for delivery.
- We’re also selling our own Wi-Fi modules – the P0 and P1 – for $10 and $12 respectively, in low volumes (10 units). These modules come with free cloud service, so they’ll do everything the Photon does, and they’ll come pre-programmed with our firmware. We’re doing this to help you transition from a prototype to a manufacturable product.
- We’ve got accessories from our friends at IDEO, Adafruit, Seeed Studio, and Fritzing! They love us, and we love them.
- We’ve also launched Spark Dev, our professional IDE built on Github’s open source Atom project. Available today!
