Sneak peek - Intel Galileo !!
Well, thanks so much to Kim S., I am now the proud owner of an Intel Galileo ! This is being touted as Intel's answer to the RaspberryPi and BBB etc.
But wait, the price point is $60 ??? And it's targeted for education for high-school kids?
Here's a sneak peek:
There are some images on the web on the block diagram for this - and they aren't very good.
I'm hoping to squeeze out some time from my schedule to see what this can really do.
First impression - for the general populace that isn't trained in electrical or computer engineering, this could be a bit of a ramp up for most to get started.
It uses the Arduino IDE (you gotta download/install version 1.5.3) and update the firmware - takes about 10 min or so to do all of it depending on your internet bandwidth.
It has a mini-PCI and is supposed to support upto 8 USB devices? Stay tuned for more updates on this in the near future....
