M5Stack GRAY Kit is from one of the M5Stack development kit series, it’s a upgrade from the Basic kits. In comparison, Gray kit provide a extra IMU sensor, MPU6886+BMM150.
With a IMU posture sensor, you can include posture detection in your work : accelerated speed, angulation, and trajectory detection. You can make relative products like sports data collector, 3D remote gesture controller and more.
GRAY is M5 Core device. Its modular, stackable, scalable, and portable device 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 on all stages include circuit design, PCB design, software, mold design and production.
Ever wanted to explore the fastest way of IoT prototyping, M5Stack development board is the perfect solution. Not like others, M5Stack development board is highly productlized, covered with industrial grade case, and ESP32-based development board. ESP32 is a hybid 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 different levels of program language, you can create and verify your IoT product in a very short time. Supported development platforms and program languages: Arduino, Blockly language with UIFlow(link), Micropython. Regardless of what level program skill you have, M5Stack would guide you in every step of the way to realize your idea as well as to the final productilization.
If you ever played with ESP8266, you would realize that ESP32 is a perfect upgrade from ESP8266. In comparison, ESP32 is full-feathered with more GPIO, plenty of analog inputs and two analog outputs, multiple extra perpherials( like a spare UART ). Official development platform ESP-IDF have planted with FreeRTOS. With dual-core and real time OS you can get more organized code and much high speed processor.

Comparision Between Different Development Kits
I am very happy from this store and products. It is my second order and I like this products. This store have very good customer support.
One thing, I ordered "BTC Standing Base for M5 Core with DHT12" and I expected the right angle USB cable, but I get not right angle. It's a pitty...
This is an update to a previous rating. I initially had some problems as I was purchasing M5Stacks Grey units with different accelerometers. Customer Support guided me to right libraries in a very short time. Great support!
Очень быстрая доставка! Все получил, что заказывал. Товар качественный. Без прошивки. Прошил за 16 минут в последнюю версию. Замечательно! 12 сервоприводов подключил без проблем!
