Pretty cool. I know alot of people were real psyched when raspberry pi came out. This looks like a good competitor.

Looking good. Actually I was under the impression that you could run a current release of Android on it with no mods. Maybe that's a different BeagleBone.

Evidently that's true for the other two boards.

TI hasn't put a distro for the black together yet. Hopefully by the end of the month.

Got myself a BeagleBone. For some reason I can't immediately fathom I went for the original (white) one.

It's pretty cool though. I'm going to use it for a home automation system.

Don't have ethernet in my garage so I'm going to hack a wireless router for the internet connection to that, if I ever get that far.

Not to be negative, but the author did a pretty bad job. We all know people who use the RPI for this instance.

Not to be negative?!

I don't think it was intended as a full featured system, it's clearly thrown together on a breadboard as a demo.

Nor is your comparison fair, because (for example) TeensyPi and BrewPi both piggyback an Arduino (or similar) on top of the RPi because of its limited I/O capabilities. This demo uses BBB on its own.

Well played sir, well played. I didnt realize that they where piggybacking an Arduino.
