We like the novel orientation of pogo pins that Wing Tang Wong used in this board design:
Upcycles D1 Mini Wemos board to create a USB connected ESP8266 Pogo pin jig
This is a board designed to take a WeMos D1 Mini board(with the ESP module removed) and use it as a USB interface with built-in reset/flash functionality for bare ESP8266 modules similar to the ESP-12 units.
The design files are available on GitHub:
This shield for the D1 Mini ESP8266-based development board adds a joystick and three buttons, so that you can implement menus or games on your device easily.

thingSoC is an Open Source socket system for IoT development and has just launched a new Crowdy Supply campaign:
Build any IoT or Networked device you can imagine!
The thingSoC Grovey! platform gives you the freedom to choose from hundreds of existing sensors, actuators, and radios to quickly create new electronic systems, in plug together configurations that were not possible before. Easily mix together different CPUs, Radios, and Peripherals, like Servos, Motors, Relays, Sound and Lights, and then program them in your choice of Integrated Development Environments (IDE).
The thingSoC Grovey! series combines access to the Seeedstudio Grove system, and the Mikrobus “Click” system, to give you the widest selection of radios, sensors, and actuators available today.
The thingSoC Grovey Series files are available on GitHub:
Daniel Grießhaber created this convenient tool to test your WiFi Security against attackers:
Demonstrate how easy it is to crack a WiFi Password or jam your WiFi so you can’t access the internet. Designed for education and self-tests.
ESPTool has the following hardware:
- SSD1306 based OLED Display, connected via I2C
- microSD Card Socket connected over the SPI interface
- 3 general purpose buttons
- ESP8266-12E Module
- TPS63031 Buck-/Boost-Converter with an input range from 1.8V – 5.5V
- MCP73831 Single-Cell LiPo Charger Chip
- CP2012 USB to UART converter Chip
The design files and source code are available on GitHub:
Mike Rankin created this adorably small WiFi-connected color OLED board:
I’ve been keeping an eye on the SSD1331 library to see if it would eventually work with the ESP8266 wifi modules. I noticed the support for it appeared one day with the Adafruit library so I tried it out on my Adafruit Hazzah and success!

Switcher – A WiFi Open Source Power Switch and Socket Based on ESP8266
The switch uses the prominent ESP8266-01 module, an Arduino program, a 3D printed box and modules. It is free and open source, so you can build and modify it on your own!
