A new open source minicomputer has been launched by Kickstarter this week looking to raise $500,000 over the next 28 days to help take the OSConnect mini PC and to manufacture.
The OSConnect mini PC is fitted with an open sourced motherboard complete with expandable Micro SD on board and solid-state hard drive. Together with connectivity via Bluetooth 4.0, wi-fi b/g/n/ac and Windows 10 with Linux and Android dual boot support. Unfortunately no specific hardware specifications have been listed as yet.
The development team behind the OSConnect mini PC explain more about its features and functionality.
OSConnect is a portable, powerful energy-efficient computer (not a computer operating system although Microsoft is the operating system being used on this device), using Intel processing with the latest version of Microsoft Windows Home Pro that fits in the palm of your hand.
This powerful portable pocket computer can connect to any display or computer using HDMI, USB, Wifi or Bluetooth and can store data via built in memory which can be expanded using the included Micro SD card slot reader. OSConnect will accommodate video output to multiple displays at the highest quality, i.e. 4K turbo boost, GFX & Burst Technology. In addition to all of that, OSconnect offers Android & Linux installations allowing for a flexible experience for the tech savvy customers, programmers, and application developers.
Jump over to the Kickstarter campaign page for full details on the OSConnect mini PC which is now available to back from $200 with shipping expected to take place during January 2018 if all goes well.
