“The Black Swift computer project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $33,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
In a few words, Black Swift Board is a tiny — almost coin-sized — computer with 32-bit CPU, megabytes of memory, integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, and other interfaces. It was created to become not only affordable and easy to use computing and communication core for modern connected devices, but also the great tool for anyone interested in electronics.
We made it with both professionals as well as enthusiasts in mind. Black Swift is great as professional-grade embedded computing core in the Internet of Things era — and at the same time it is easy to learn and easy to use, allowing novices to gradually raise their experience.”
