I would like a microcontroller already interfaced to a WiFi module, with the WiFi interface taken care of. Also, I want to be able to program the MCU to interface sensors or whatever…possibly with the outputs broken out for ease of connecting. Almost like a development board, but small and cheap enough to interface a few sensors or such and send over wifi.
These guys are close Roving Networks, but the interface to the MCU is very limited. I know wifi is overkill for sensor data, but it is also ubiquitous.
I guess what I am saying is that I hate laying out boards. I have done some serious google searching and haven't found anything. Anybody using anything like this?
The ESP8266 is probably the answer to this question
