Are you a fan of DIY development boards that you can have for cheap? Well, forget the Raspberry Pi, because a truly affordable—even disposable—board is coming to town. As the world’s smallest IoT computer, this development board is truly available to just about anyone who can shell out 5 USD. It has built-in WIFI, features on-board flash storage, and is barely larger than the size of a postage stamp. This means that there are a lot fewer extras to buy, and the Omega 2 works right out of the box, with an operating system pre-installed.
If you’re the minimalistic type, you can even use the Omega 2 as a Linux desktop computer. It’s small, efficient OS features built-in apps, and you can even download more using their app store.
