Take a look at the Phasor Kickstarter page, for a development board targeted towards Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. Think of it as an Arduino, with 10 GPIO pins that also has a Wi-Fi module for $20 USD. The Phasor team also developed an "Arduino IDE"-like programming environment, to help newcomers get started quickly. Phasor measures 1.2"x0.8" inches (30.5 x 20.3 mm).

The Wifi module can also be used to setup an Access Point and has built-in functionality that lets you control the GPIO pins through a web page without writing any code.

The team currently offers a 128x32 graphical OLED display shield and shield with screw terminals for 120V AC loads. Additional shields are envisioned, but are subject to stretch goals.
