A Feather HUZZAH development board is included. An Arduino or other microcontroller is not required.
This pack DOES NOT include a standard USB micro-B cable (use any cable you have as long as its sync+charge not ‘charge only’), a solderless breadboard, or a Lipoly battery (take your project on the go!) – you will need a USB cable to program and debug your HUZZAH & either USB or a Lipoly battery to power the Feather HUZZAH. You may also want a full size breadboard and some prototyping wires. Some soldering is required to assemble the Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 and HDC1008 sensor.
