The Electron board is an innovative cellular-equipped board, offered by Particle, that makes it possible for you to create your very own 3G Internet devices -- if you're willing to put up with a slight learning curve.

The device is equipped with all the basic elements you need to create Internet of Things gadgets except for a modem. It also comes with a data plan.

What's great about the Electron board is that it's pretty easy to get started on if you're an experienced tinkerer or novice engineer who has worked with circuit boards before. You can also attach LED lights and upload your test code through a web browser, enabling you to test your progress while you're working.

The Internet of Things is slowly starting to infiltrate the consumer electronics market, but the Electron board now ensures that DIY enthusiasts, tinkerers and hackers can also find innovative ways to create Internet-equipped gadgets and devices.
