Just the kind of kit needed by an aspiring engineer to play with at home. I hope that middle school and high school students have an opportunity to work with these to implement their new ideas.

Brilliant! I especially like that the web control panel. This should make it easy enough so that even high school kids can quickly and successfully tinker with it.

Excellent idea. There is a lot of competition in that space right now. The fact that it's and Arduino gives it a leg up as does the pre-made API. Depending on how complete and easy to use thee APIs are, it could be a very big leg up. Trying to communicate between the processor on the board (not just to the web server) and the client web page is not as easy as it should be. Hopefully this will mitigate that difficulty.

I think the price is a bit high, though.

PoE - Power over Ethernet would make these great. But PoE must be cheap and low cost to implement.

unless I am missing something, 69$ for this board is on the high side. 30-40$ would have been the right price.. I would expect these guys do a better negotiation with vendors like Qualcomm, as, if some product made of these kits takeoff, those vendors would be the direct beneficiaries.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
