M5Stack FIRE Kit is an upgrade from the M5Stack Gray kits providing more hardware resources: 16M Flash + 4M PSRAM, enhanced Base (M5GO Base and M5GO CHG Base), larger battery and more!

With an IMU posture sensor, you can include posture detection in your projects, including: accelerated speed, angulation, and trajectory detection. You can make products like sports data collectors, 3D remote gesture controllers and more.

FIRE is M5 Core device, It's a modular, stackable, scalable, and portable device which is powered with an ESP-32 core, which makes it open-source, low cost, full-function, and easy for developers to handle new product development at all stages including circuit design, PCB design, software, mold design and production.

M5Stack Fire comes with three separable parts. The top part is like the Basic and Gray Kits with a multitude of processors, chips, sockets, 2.4G antenna, an ESP32, power management IC, an LCD screen and some other interface components. The middle part is called M5GO base (link) and includes a lithium battery, M-BUS(link) socket, LED bar and two GROVE Ports. The bottom part is a charge table that can be connected to the M5GO base via POGO pins.

Ever wanted to explore the fastest way of IoT prototyping, then the M5Stack development boards are the perfect solution. Unlike others, M5Stack development boards are highly productized, protected with an industrial-grade case and based on an ESP32 development board. The ESP32 is a hybrid Wi-Fi & Bluetooth chip contains a dual-core and 4MB of SPI Flash. Together with 30+ M5Stack stackable modules( M5Modules-link ), 40+ extendable units( M5Units-link ), and supporting different levels of program language, you can create and verify all of your IoT products quickly. Supported development platforms and program languages: Arduino, Blockly language with UIFlow(link), Micropython. Regardless of what level of program skill you have, the M5Stack would help guide you every step of the way to realize your idea as well as to the final productization.

If you have ever played with an ESP8266, you would know that the ESP32 is a perfect upgrade from ESP8266. In comparison, the ESP32 is full-feathered with more GPIOs, plenty of analog inputs and two analog outputs, multiple extra peripherals (like a spare UART). Official development platform ESP-IDF has planted with FreeRTOS. With dual-core and real-time OS you can get more organized code and much faster processing.
