The Espruino Pico, a compact microcontroller running javascript, Kickstarter has collected enough money to go to be produced. According to the authors, the Espruino Pico can be used to control all kinds of electronics.

The Espruino Pico , directly into a USB port can be pierced, is the successor to the Espruino, a move that appeared on Kickstarter last year. The ability to pierce the Pico-execution directly into a USB port on a PC, programming the microcontroller should facilitate further.

The Espruino Pico according to the makers also a novice software developer to speed quickly because the ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller directly through the relatively simple javascript programming. Because the control is the same as that of the original Espruino, there is also to be found a lot of documentation, online, as well as all kinds of code to set up simple electronics projects. The Pico version should be available in two versions: a version with soldered pins and a version without. There will also be several kits available to quickly build projects.

Meanwhile, the makers have the Kickstarter target of £ 15,000, approximately 18,777 euros, amply met; the counter is at time of writing more than 44,000 pounds, or more than 55,000 euros. It is expected that the first Espruino Pico’s going to be delivered in April next year.
