Welcome to the ESP8266 WikiaEdit

The ESP8266 is a wireless mini-computer for about US$2 per piece[1]. For this single board computer there is no keyboard, no mouse and no screen. This computer is operated via Android or iPhone apps or via a web browser. It is - due to its price - best to implement the so-called Internet of Things (IoT).

Only connectors for keyboard, mouse or screen are more expensive than this whole computer usually. Of course a power supply and peripherals must be connected. It´s the same with the more powerful and around 20 times more expensive Raspberry Pi.
