Leapfrog Didj: Handheld Linux on the Cheap

,----[ Quote ]
| Today our good friends over at Woot! are 
| selling the Leapfrog Didj, a low cost 
| educational toy aimed at little kids. Lucky 
| for hackers out there, the Didj is actually a 
| linux device, and gaining serial console 
| access is as easy as soldering two wires. The 
| documentation out there is a little outdated, 
| with a number of broken links and stale 
| wikis, but $25 for a portable linux device is 
| a hard deal to beat. A list of sites which 
| might be helpful are listed after the break, 
| as well as the hardware specs of the Didj.

| Based on Linux, users can run a number of
| programs including YouTube, Flickr, e-mail
| clients, web browsers and more. Itâs being
| touted as a netbook/projector. Thereâs also a
| USB port, A/V output, a SM/MMC card reader and
| internal memory (though its not clear how
| much).


âBusiness Classâ Favi Pico-Projectors Run Small, Have Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The RIOLED-V is actually a netbook slash
| projector, featuring Linux, web apps (YouTube,
| Flickr and a few other ubiquitous ones like
| weather and email were mentioned) and Wi-Fi.
| It kind of reminded me of that MSI projector
| PC the CES guys spotted out in Vegas this
| week, albeit a smaller, half-baked version
| that did not look anything like a small space
| ship with 1080p.

Tiny DLP projector ships

,----[ Quote ]
| Digi-Key has started distributing a tiny video projector from Texas
| Instruments (TI) that could prove small enough to embed in mobile phones. The
| 10-lumen Pico Projector uses TI's DLP (digital light processing) technology,
| and is sold as part of a development kit targeting the Linux-ready
| BeagleBoard.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
