IoT: Tessel, JavaScript microcontroller

Technical Machine:

"Tessel is a microcontroller that runs JavaScript. 
It's Node-compatible and ships with Wifi built in. 
Use it to easily make physical devices that connect to the web."


  • 180mhz ARM Cortex-M3 LPC1830
  • 32mb SDRAM
  • 32mb Flash
Compared to RaspberryPi ($35) it is much less powerful and much more expensive ($99). In fact node.js can run on RaspberryPi, too, along many other things.
