Upgrade ESP8266 Firmware With Ease Using this Re-Programmer PCB #IoT #IoTuesday

For some, this is no doubt incredibly useful!

A little while back we updated some firmware on one of our ESP8266 modules. Well now we’ve only gone and bought about twenty of them off ebay – and they all need updating!

While it’s possible to do this with a usb-to-serial device and pull wires out and plug them in again in a little breadboard, it’s also pretty time-consuming. And a bit fiddly.

And when real-life work gets in the way of nerding about, time-consuming and fiddly means more time working and less time nerding. Which means we needed something to make re-programming all these ESP8266 modules that little bit quicker. So we came up with this:

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
