You bring up some valid points regarding the Micro Python and its comparison to the Arduino. Yes, the Micro Python does have similar I/O  attributes like the Arduino for example several ADC channels. I would like to obtain a development board as well to investigate the capabilities discussed in the Kickstarter video campaign.

I think this board may be more likely to muscle itself into Arduino territory than Raspberry Pi, though it combines the strengths of both.  It has the controller capabilities of the Arduino (mainly ADC capability) using the more friendly Python language rather than C, but without the Linux OS overhead and learning curve of the Raspberry Pi.  I'm looking forward to get my hands on one to see how well it performs in an application requiring real-time control.

Cabe,

The Micro Python microcontroller looks awesome. I was quite impressed with the lsize of the pcb as well as all of the applications it can be used in. Damien George has a pretty steady hand when soldering the SMD parts on the pcb via the Kickstarter Campaign video. Just wondering if this board will give the Raspberry Pi a run for its money. It too uses Python as the programming language because of ease of learning and its interpretive method of testing code while developing the target application.

Well, I suggest checking out their Kickstarter for more details.

 

The size is perfect for smaller development.. smaller size enclosures.

Cabe, this is an interesting development.  It might be interesting to have some more details as to how this works.  I assume there is a VM involved.  The STM32 is a great part.
