Touchbook by Always Innovating
« on: March 03, 2009, 05:08:09 pm »
Hello All

Anyone else find this interesting, https://www.alwaysinnovating.com/touchbook looks promising as an orbiter and $299 seems reasonable. Heck maybe you can use it as a portable MD for your house, Any thoughts.

probably wont easily work as a MD because of its ARM processor

True Nigle, But a good Orbiter for sure and it's already running on linux so shouldn't be a problem right.

I wouldn't mind having a stab at it but I don't have any suitable hardware.

What kind of hardware would you need?  would something like a popcorn hour work? Or would something different be better?  I might be able to help chip in for some hardware for you.  Just let me know your thoughts.  Thanks
