Hardware: NextThingCo’s Pocket C.H.I.P. Review via CNXSoft – Embedded Systems News

Hardware: NextThingCo’s Pocket C.H.I.P. Review via CNXSoft – Embedded Systems News

New hardware has been coming fast and furious lately - with new Raspberry Pi 3, New Arduino and Arduino Compatible Boards many more permutations of shields, add-ons and more. I hadn't heard much about the Pocket C.H.I.P before, but it sounds like quite a little powerhouse.
"It’s not that easy to describe PocketC.H.I.P in a couple of words, as it’s so versatile. It’s a Debian based portable Linux computer with a resistive touchscreen and battery, but also a retro gaming console thanks to PICO-8, as well as a hardware development platform for IoT application with expansion header providing access to I/Os including GPIOs, I2C, SPI, UART…, and WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Furthermore you can easily dismantle the device, in order to use the CHIP board, based on Allwinner R8 Cortex A8 processor, for a different project."
You can find a ton of screenshots and this video on the CNXSoft site to give you more information on this hardware,
