>>52684873 " Complementing the 1Ghz processor are 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of flash storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, standard and micro USB ports, and a composite AV jack that can output video and audio to many TVs. Like its cousins in the Arduino and Raspberry Pi ecosystems, C.H.I.P. can also be extended with snap-on “shield” modules—specifically ones that output video over VGA and HDMI to expand display options.

>>52684857 I have to say, I like the look of Pocket CHIP. A computer with a keyboard and display in your pocket for < $50 is pretty awesome. Even if it doesn't have that much guts in terms of computing power it's a cool toy at least
>>52684857 There's a catch, like with everything on kickscammer. it's $9 + shipping now + shields for ports, but it's going to be $40 later. Which means you funded a overpriced product that's not going anywhere.
By the time you get yours raspi0 is going to be available again, a much better product for less than half the price.
This is what it looks like when you stand at the foot of a great exponential curve, reaching asymptotically to the sky.
Personal computers used to cost $10,000. Soon you'll be getting them for free in junk mail, in breakfast cereal. In magazines. They'll be a nuisance, like AOL cd's. Alan Turing and Ada Lovelace wouldn't believe it.
The singularity wont happen all at once. It will happen in fits and starts, it will be "chunky". Ubiquitous computing will be a disruption on the order of what we saw with the internet boom.
And nobody has any idea what this means for us. Dismiss this $9 "meme tech" at your peril.
>>52686137 >have to buy USB hub >have to buy USB-ethernet or USB wifi >on top of that probably have to buy a fucking USB-microUSB or whatever the fuck converter Yeah ok. Enjoy your 20 dollar 3 dollar board.
>>52686160 Just about everyone has an extra out of all of those (as opposed to a c.h.i.p. shield), except for maybe the usb otg adapter that costs $1. You could probably get some free from friends. Even then, you can get a ethernet adapter for ~$2, usb hub for ~$3 and otg cable for $1, so $11 (cheaper than chip)
Well, I'm not interested in what amounts to original Raspberry Pi horsepower so I'm not gonna bother to look CHIP up. However, at least these guys had some sense of aesthetics and didn't hang any ports off the board.
>$9 gets you a lot on silicon these days
I'm more interested in what I can get at $50, really.
>>52686303 by your logic you should be counting in the cost of the power - because not everyone has that already, oh and the internet usage - add that in - and the physical space, you might want to take that into consideration when you pay your council tax. moron
>>52684857 >What does /b/ thinks about this $9 meme tech?
I, personally, think it's a scam by Allwinner to try and sell off surplus, EOL silicon to fucking rubes in the "Maker" community by hiring a marketing firm out of Washington, who went for the "hipster" theme for their marketing.
>>52687049 >a raspberry pi costs less than a tablet, so everyone should just get a pi and turn it into a tablet >you might have a spare screen and battery and shit, so that doesn't factor into the cost xddd
>>52687421 Everyone has forks and knives (if they're not britcucks). Not everyone has a bunch of fucking USB converters, USB-ethernet cables, and USB wifi cards laying around. Stop being a fucking autist.
>>52684930 I'm betting that 512mb memory is shared with the GPU. You're not going to do much with it graphically. Built-in wifi and bluetooth would make it a pretty cheap way to get some wireless embedded applications done, though.
