Cotton Candy from FXITech

  View Printable Version 
HardwareThe Cotton Candy (or Cstick) from Norwegian company FXITech is another very small computer on a stick. Compared to some others, this one appears to have decent hardware. Only time will tell if it will succeed. Currently, the only firmware available is a pre-release Android image, but Ubuntu is supposed to be released today.

One neat thing: the built-in "virtual host client" allows you to use the Cstick by just plugging it into your computer.

HardwareFrom the web site: OpenROV is a
 Do It Yourself telerobotics community centered around underwater exploration and education. We have developed a low-cost telerobotic submarine that can be built with mostly off-the-shelf parts.
The goal of OpenROV is to democratize exploration by allowing anyone to explore and study underwater environments.

Very cool!

HardwareThe Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. Itís a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming. The community hangs out at the Raspberry Pi forums, and the Embedded Linux RPi wiki pages.

Papilio

  View Printable Version 
HardwarePapilio is an interesting FPGA platform. Currently, the hardware is Papilio One plus a number of add-ons ("Wings") , but more boards are in the works. The really interesting thing is the software. There is an ArduinoCore (AVR8) and a matching IDE, which allows you to run arduino sketches on the platform. How cool is that? Then there is the ZPUino, a 32-bit SoC (System-on-a-Chip) based on Zylin's ZPU 32-bit processor core. This also comes with a Arduino-style IDE. Wonderful!

HardwareFrom Instructables: Arduino True Battery Capacity Tester (Li-Ion/NiMH/NiCD/Pb). You need an Arduino board, a LED, a FET, and a 2.2 ohm 10W resistor. Oh yes, and a display. This project is both cool and useful.

XuLA-200

  View Printable Version 
HardwareThe XuLA-200 is an interesting FPGA board. Everything is open source, and it's quite affordable. Granted, there isn't much external circuitry, but that is perhaps why it doesn't cost more. Oh, and if you need a cheaper one, look at the XuLA-50.

Open-USB-IO

  View Printable Version 
HardwareOpen-USB-IO is an interesting board. From the web site: "The Open-USB-IO board will plug into the USB port on a Linux, Mac or Windows computer ( XP, Vista or Windows 7) and provide a variety of digital and analogue inputs and outputs including 7 motor drivers. No special software drivers are required just a simple command line or GUI program. You can control the hardware from command line, script, or your own programs on the PC. You can also program in assembler or C the ATMEGA32 microprocessor that is the heart of the board."
