This sounds like it's a bunch of GPIO ports connected to a PC over serial, and a nice Python module that runs on the PC. It's not Python-on-a-microcontroller (they never claim it is, but that's the assumption I made upon seeing the website). For those who want this sort of thing, it's also easy to get an Arduino, write a quick sketch that receives and transmits over USB serial, and use pyserial to control it.

Exactly my reaction.

You can run Python actually ON a Raspberry Pi, btw. That device is just not as robust on GPIO (5V destroys it, weak current source.)

Yes, good point. Though getting an RPi these days is quite a chore. Its backordered until hell freezes over.
