APCContinuing the "parade of hardware" this month, Srinavas Gumdelli recently recieved a $49 Android PC from Via which will be shown at the meeting.
As the name implies, yes it runs Android OS and we all know that has the Linux kernel underneath. While the APC is similar to the Raspberry Pi in cost and hardware capabilities, it is quite a bit different.
Raspberry PiJoin us this month for a demonstration of the amazing Raspberry Pi! This small board computer runs on USB power and loads from an SD card. It provides composite and HDMI (high definition) video output, audio, and USB ports. The $35 model includes 256MB RAM and a 100Mbit ethernet port. See the Raspberry Pi site for more information on the hardware.
We will be showing what it's like to run different Linux distros on this hardware and will demonstrate it running one or more retro game system emulators (NES, Master System, etc.).
Refreshments will be provided.
