The Frame.IoT is an Arduino-based developer board that comes with numerous LEDs, 16 in total. The board should be comparatively easy to program thanks to its integrated Wi-Fi connectivity.
Alex Alderson,

Currently seeking crowdfunding on Kickstarter, the Frame.IoT is an Arduino-compatible developer board that features integrated Wi-Fi. The ESP-32 also supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and can operate using a rechargeable battery. Combining the latter with Wi-Fi connectivity should allow the Frame.IoT to be deployed in a variety of ways.

The device also features 16 RGB LEDs arranged in a circular pattern, along with a single button in the middle of the board. The Frame.IoT supports external actuators and sensors, too.

Additionally, the Frame.IoT features a microSD card slot, a USB to serial converter and a micro USB port among other components. Joshua Perk, the creator of the Frame.IoT notes that the final version may have a Type-C port, instead.

The Frame.IoT can currently be ordered for US$39 plus US$10 to US$20 for shipping. According to the Kickstarter page, the shipping cost will vary depending on where you would like the board shipped to and the volume of units ordered. The Frame.IoT comes with 13 jumper pins, too. Perk estimates to start delivering orders to backers in September 2020 and also offers a bundle that includes a 2 GB microSD card, a 3 W speaker, a micro USB cable and a 350 mAh lithium battery.
