Wio Node has the most of features as Wio Link. But it is cheaper, smaller and also lighter in weight.

  • Supports Grove Sensors/Actors
  • Visual Configuration via Mobile App (Android & iOS)
  • OTA (Over-The-Air) Firmware Updates
  • RESTful APIs
  • IFTTT Application
  • Powering by Micro USB
  • Battery Holder for re-chargeble LiPo accu

Easy starting at iot.seeed.cc/start.

NodeMCU for the ESP32?

Espressif dveloped the ESP32 and NodeMCU users wait for this more performance offering CPU. The information is rare, yet.

In the NodeMCU repository on Github I found some discussion about the state of development and this nice diagram revealing some internals and peripherals.

ESP32

It would be nice to hold this device programmed with NodeMCU firmware in hands asap. If you have further information please add it to get a better picture of what we can expect.

I received an interesting link from DIY India Magazine with some more information.
