Tessel Runs JavaScript Right On The Device

published on July 20, 2013 in technical

Node.js was probably the first step in widening JavaScript usage accross various platforms and devices. But things are evolving rapidly and we already have hardware which runs JS.

“What is Tessel? Tessel is an Internet-connected microcontroller for software developers.” And it runs JavaScript right on the device. Almost unbelievable.

Based actually on Node.js and able to use Npm, Tessel is quite an interesting thing. You may push code to it from anywhere over WiFi, or over USB. This is the hardware guy's dream who graduated some electronics school, then moved over to JS programming.

I am really curious on the final stuff. If you are too, check out the technical.io site.
