Tessel 2 is a development platform you can embed in a product. Build fast with Node.js, then optimize the hardware and build thousands.


JavaScript right on the hardware

Tessel is the first product from Boston based Technical Machine, a startup founded by Tim Ryan, Jon McKay and Jia Huang looking to create a "hardware development platform for programmers".

The small Tessel board runs JavaScript right on the device and ships with a TI CC3000 WiFi module so that you can deploy your code remotely from anywhere (or via the Tessel smartphone app).

Expansion modules for the board will be available so you can plug and play Bluetooth & RFID connectivity, sensors, Arduino shield compatibility, or a Micro SD card into your project as needed.

Additional features of the Tessel platform include:

Node js + Microcontroller: Tessel
