    This is the first time I have heard of this. Sounds like a pi spin-off. I have never used pi hardware so I can't compare ease of use. 

    You can test out this project discovering its benefits. Tell the rest of us what it is like. Investigate. 

  • Just decided to back them. The campaign seems to be getting quite a bit of traction.

    The $5 price point is great for embedding into projects or commercial products. The product will likely come with power supplies to supply it with power. So i guess the cost for the docks, expansions and whatever are only for during the development process. This could significantly cut product development time and production cost.

    I might consider buying one. The more I read it, the more cools features I learn about it.
