ESP32 has better performances:greenskynet wrote: ↑10 Feb 2023, 14:55 thank you madin for your suggestion
I just searched about Esp8266 , it is a Wi-Fi microchip, and it has microcontroller capability, that means it is something like a Arduino + WiFi module.
it is very interesting. but I think it is not a common board. is it available in all locations and countries? its origin is China.
You can find it almost everywhere: amazon, aliexpress, ebay...
An interesting application to a 360 photo turntable, developed outside of the arduino IDE:
edit: I just realized that photopizza.org in no longer available. I built one for fun and it is a nice turntable, but never used for 3D scanning.
Btw ESP modules are quite common, for instance in the house automation. You can find them in commercial switches (shelly, sonoff, and so on). And you can use them for "hacking" cheap IKEA IOT stuff.
