We live in a world (specially where I live) most of kids don't have a PCs in their homes to have fun with Arduino's and so many beautiful things we hackers enjoy. Why can't we make something for them? That’s why I stared to make a HYBRID mini-PC call "Gavesha" two years ago with my friends. Our goals was to make it affordable, easy and super fun.
We came up with a crazy idea to build an app to harness the processing power in smartphones and then lend it to a ESP32 based motherboard (a hybrid approach). We choose this way because many kids already have access to cheap smartphones. Now we have embedded a Python IDE and tutorials all inside the app. Codes written can be emulate or uploaded via BLE thanks to a mini OS built on top of microPython and ESP IDF. You know that else cool in this project? SMART MODULE! when you plug them to mini-PC it can detect them in real time and load relevant APIs in the IDE making it simple for coders! Something like inte
ESP32 Dual core with WiFi and Bluetooth
Inbuilt Li-ion BMS
6 axis IMU
3 programmable push buttons
128x128 TFT LCD
Module expansion port
Gavesha uses ESP32 at its core.

We are using AVR for smart modules.
