Back at the beginning of this month we feature the new CHIP minicomputer that had been created by Next Thing, and was available to purchase for just $9 from its crowd funding campaign website.
The CHIP minicomputer is powered by a 1 GHz processor supported by 512MB of RAM and provides 4GB of storage for your chosen operating system and applications.
With still 15 days remaining on its Kickstarter campaign the tiny computer has already raised over $1.6 million thanks to over 30,000 backers.
Other features of the $9 computer include both Bluetooth 4.0 and wireless connectivity with support for 802.11b/g/n as well as the ability to use pre-loaded apps such as Scratch. Watch the video below to learn more.
“C.H.I.P. is designed to work with any screen. Old or new. Big or small. Connect via C.H.I.P.’s built-in composite output or add a simple adapter for either VGA or HDMI. C.H.I.P. comes pre-loaded with Scratch – an easy to learn language that teaches the basics of programming by making stories, games, and animations.
Use C.H.I.P. with LibreOffice to edit spreadsheets, create word documents, or craft presentations. It’s all there. Use the Chromium browser to surf the web. Check out websites, send emails, watch videos, and more. The internet awaits. “
