Probably that cost would come down as we go up with volumes. Since it is mentioned as product of consumer electronics the Key is always to bring down price with mass production.

Highly interesting product, no doubt.

 other niche they're missing is very low power. For that niche  the LORA protocol by semtech fit well. One question thought :how would they integrate their scripting language and virtual machine in a low power system ?

The second set of questions: The embedded industry is highly driven by  price, especially in consumer products. This module seems expensiveSo how did they convinced they're customers ?  what volumes per product are they shipping? is it used only for the first version of the products?

Bluetooth Smart, ANT, or some other ultra-low-power proprietary technology?

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.
