Presenting the WiPy 1.0. The possibilities are endless, what will you create?
The enterprise grade IOT development platform that runs Python in real time with the perfect blend of power, friendliness and flexibility. Create and connect your things. Fast.
- MicroPython enabled, use the Linux of IoT for 10x faster programming
- Small and light to fit in any cavity
- Fits in a standard breadboard (with headers)
- Ultra-low power usage: a fraction compared to other connected micro controllers
All the hardware specs are nice, but the coolest part is that they are super easy to use, because we have written an powerful and intuitive Python API to take advantage of every feature of the hardware.
Other WiFi boards are available and you might think, “yet another platform…”, guess what? it’s not. Because it runs Python and that works just like the Python you are used to working with on a PC, the learning curve is minimal, if there’s any at all. Simply put, the WiPy is all about Python and the internet, but taken to the next level.

With dozens of ready to use templates and libraries soon to be available on the Pycom Exchange, developing a new IoT solution is now easier and faster. Additional support for Blynk: SMTP, MQTT, URLLIB, ONEWIRE, Accelerometer, Event loop MicroPython together with the universal hardware API allow us to build a large set of powerful, robust, and portable libraries across hardware platforms.
