* Mesh networked, web-connected - Field Scouts talk to each other using a mesh network (called a Troop), using an extremely low-power radio. This makes them 14 times more power efficient than standard WiFi devices. Slap a WiFi backpack on a Scout to make it the Lead Scout, and connect your entire Troop to the web. * Battery included, recharge circuit built-in - Every Scout comes with its own (removable) rechargeable battery, making it truly wireless, straight out of the box. We’ve also gone ahead and built one of those pesky charging circuits right into the board, so you can monitor your power levels, and recharge your Scout using the USB connector, or a power source of your own (bust out those solar panels). * API - free, real-time, streaming, RESTful, and optional - Use our free API, or roll your own, it’s up to you. Our real-time REST API lets you stream data out of each and every Scout. That means you’ll be notified instantly when something changes (pin values, LED, temperature, etc). * ScoutScript - instant feedback, no waiting to compile - Compile, test, tweak, repeat. Who has the time? ScoutScript gives you shell-like access to your hardware. Write and edit functions, run commands, read sensors, or send messages — all over-the-air, and instantaneously — no more waiting to compile! * It’s Open Source, and Arduino compatible - Pinoccio is built on open source hardware and software.
