Category: Tech

Okay so you’re not going to be ditching your work computer for CHIP, but for only $9, this ingenious little computer is still a no-brainer.

Designed specifically for the light web users out there (work on docs, internet browsing, media playback, and even play some simple games), CHIP is a single board system equipped with a 1Ghz processor paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. It runs an open source operating system, and even features both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology. The device connects to any monitor utilizing your choice of composite, HDMI or VGA. There’s even a Game Boy inspired case that houses CHIP, letting you use the PC on the go. The creators at Next Thing Co. have absolutely obliterated their Kickstarter goal, and we can’t wait to see this thing on the retail scene in due time. [Purchase]
