Tessel - Internet Connected Microcontroller for Software Developers

Tessel is an Internet-connected microcontroller for software developers. Embedded development is as easy as coding a web or mobile app. Or prototype a physical product, and refine the experience with telemetry and updates over Wifi. Create new ways to connect your life beyond a screen. Tessel runs JavaScript right on the device—no server necessary. Use your own IDE and libraries to program it, just like web development. Uploading new firmware is as easy as tessel push! Tessel supports packages from npm to leverage the growing Node.js community and capabilities. That's HTTP, Twitter, web server, color, and async support right out of the box. They believe the next generation of devices will be connected, which is why the Tessel ships with Wifi built-in. Features include: a) Push code from anywhere. Tessel supports deploying code over USB and remotely over Wifi. No need to dismantle your project to update or debug your Tessel—you can access yours wherever you are; b) The web as your backend. Respond to traffic APIs, post to social networks, or connect to your own server to coordinate. It's as easy as require('http'); and c) Expose the digital Push data from your favorite APIs over to Tessel to transform the digital into the physical. This will be added to Script Resources Subject Tracer™.
