I had breakfast with Alden this morning, always an eye-opening experience. And he was most excited about Next Thing and CHIP.
CHIP is a credit-card sized computer with mainstream Linux, built-in WiFi, BlueTooth, composite video output, 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of flash…
Alden’s excited because he can target his IoT development efforts towards this chip with no compromises. He’s been working with other single-board computers, but the power, specs, ease-of-programming, and price are all there with this.
In any case, very cool stuff, even to a coming-back-into-the-software-world guy like me. I have to admit I was having a tough time getting worked up about coding for Arduino.
