Is there any way I can emulate the Electric Imp with a virtual machine?

I'm currently working my way through the Build an IoT Integration with Electric Imp trailhead.
This requires an "Electric Imp Developer Kit".
I don't have one.

At this time, I'm not so serious about IoT that I would like to waste both my money and earth's limited physical resources for a device for which I have no long term use for, but will merely use for a few minutes to complete a trailhead.

Is there any possiblity to run a virtual device emulating the kit on my computer instead?
(Or, if not, could some environmentally responsible person create that possibility?)
