I heard about this at Golden Gate Ruby Conf this past year from Ron Evans (@deadprogram). It’s a low-power, low cost computer that can be used for lightweight media centers or “learn to program” desktops.

I love the idea of these little machines lurking about hte house doing all sorts of automated stuff for us behind our back. While it’s clearly underpowered to do advanced photo editing, most of our requirements for household computing (yet) are fairly low power with frequent gap time.
