SwiftIO is an electronic circuit board that runs Swift on the bare metal. It can control sensors, displays, lights, motors and more. By Tibor Bödecs.
The board itself has a small footprint, it’s just about 1,57” x 2,36” (4cm x 6cm) big.
It’s quite a powerful microcontroller. It is definitely the most affordable Swift language learning device. It can be ideal for STEM education purposes for students who want to see how to build electronic circuits and get some basic Swift programming skills at the same time.
