Chumby – Let it be…
August 28, 2006
Open, hackable and commercial available (well, almost..) is Chumby’s offering. A simple client machine with wireless capabilities. The idea is that you can customise the software (and the casing) so that the gadget is what ever you want it to be – Radio player, photo album, news reader. There doesn’t seem to be any commercial restrictions so the diversity of use, so expect a whole host of brand-funded applications to roll in, that’s if brands ever understand Open source.. www.chumbly.com
The picture to the left is the first outing of the device at the O’reilly FooCamp weekender. Details here, and worth a scan to see what they taked about.
