MicroPython is a lean and fast implementation of the Python 3 programming language that is optimised to run on a microcontroller. The MicroPython board is a small electronic circuit board that runs MicroPython on the bare metal, and gives you a low-level Python operating system that can be used to control all kinds of electronic projects.

MicroPython was successfully funded via a Kickstarter campaign. The software is available to the public under the MIT open source license.

Further information about the project can be found at the Kickstarter pages:

See also the Kicktraq page for the history of the Kickstarter campaign.
