About: I like to create new things! I'm very interested in IOT and just Internet Stuff. I am not responsible for any injury or deaths caused by my projects.

Hello, This is the first project to a long series that will lead up to some amazing projects! I hope you will find my projects very helpful and tag along.

I have read the entire MediaTek Dev Guide and have simplified it into simple easy instructables project for you! I hope you find my linkit projects helpful!!
