Introduction: The LoPy – Kickstarter Feature Video

LoPy was launched on Kickstarter in February 2016 and successfully funded with 240% of initial requirement. The LoPy is available for pre-order (see the Pycom webshop) and will ship to customers August 2016.

All the hardware specs are awesome, but it get’s better still. The LoPy is really easy to use, because we have written a powerful and intuitive IDE – the Pymakr to make it even easier for you to program in your browser and load straight to the LoPy.
