Onion Omega: Another WiFi dev board for IoT applications

Only 1/4 the size of the Raspberry Pi computer, Onion Omega is the latest and most promising open hardware development platform for WiFi based IoT applications. It comes with built-in WiFi, Arduino-compatible and it runs full Linux. It lets you prototype hardware devices using familiar tools such as Git, pip, npm, and using high level programming languages such as Python, Javascript, PHP. The Onion Omega is fully integrated with the Onion Cloud, making it a breeze to connect physical devices to the Web to create Internet of Things applications.

Congratulations to the Onion Team for far surpassing their Kickstarter funding goal, while there are still 11 days for the campaign to go.
