About: I am a researcher working on development of optical atomic clocks. Electronics is my hobby since childhood when my uncle was bringing me old phones to play and take apart.

In the attached zip file you can read tutorials about making fun things with the low-cost ESP8266 WiFi board:

  • Wi-Fi module ESP8266 programming from Arduino IDE.

  • Switch ON/OFF light using your mobile phone over Wi-Fi.

  • RGB LED stripe “NeoPixels” + ESP8266 with effects switching from website.

  • Wi-Fi thermometer storing to Internet cloud "ThingsSpeak".

  • Deep-sleep mode for battery-powered Wi-Fi themometer.

  • Advanced thermometer with AP configuration via a website and EEPROM use.

    ESP module has firmware in it when you buy it. It communicates with Arduino IDE.

    May be I could donate one to you and send by post. So you can start practicing programming it. When I went to school I also couldn't afford many things.

    This is excellent! I was planning on making one this week, and was really curious about how to do deep-sleep mode.

    Thanks!
