Oh I'd never heard of those. I'm pretty new to all this stuff, I know
bugger all about electronics and I was never that interested in the
Arduino or similar boards and never had a use case for one, but now
there are wifi and bluetooth ones (I notice there's an LTE Onion Omega
coming too), they're a lot more useful to me.
