While doing some research on embedded Linux I ran across what has to be the coolest nerd gadget ever. It’s a “personal space assistant” that runs an embedded version of Linux on a Pentium III processor.
This item is a bit bigger than a grapefruit is size and you can carry it in one hand. Some of the cool features?
- Video Display Unit
- Environment Sensor
- Wireless Link
- Range finder
- Motion Detector
- Search Light
- Inventory Scanner
- Video Camera
It even has a “Micro Propulsion Unit” in case you get stuck in space somewhere and need to get back to ship.
