NPR recently had a report on a computer that cost U.S. $9 for a CPU from Next.Thing.Co.
and the possibilities it opens up for new innovation is very exciting.
It will allow access to an open-source platform of hardware and
software in education and creative individuals that were once held back
by high costs and rigid frameworks.
I once joked about a future
where computers would be so inexpensive that we would purchase them as
we would incandescent light bulbs. Now, that future is fast
approaching as the C.H.I.P. will ship out in June of 2016.
