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.

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

I think the price is a bit high, though.

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.

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.

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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
