wiki:ESP8266

This module looks interesting. For $10 you get a uC which is supported by the Arduino world and has wifi. Presumably it is free of the unix issue with file system corruption at power-down.

Sunrise lamp thoughts using this thing:

Qty Item Each Total
1 Warm White LED strip 1m $25 $25
1 PWM lamp controller (MOSFET) $1.75 $1.75
1 Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 uC with Wifi $10 $10
1 Adafruit sound gizmo $15 $15
1 Powered speaker ? ?
1 Adafruit RTC $5 $5
1 Display/Keypad Module (I2C) $20 $20
1 Power supply, box etc $25 $25
Total ~$100

Power:

12V LED strip 1.2A
5V LCD module, Sound generator, ESP ?
3.3V RTC, ESP, I2C pull-ups ?
