Remember Project: C.H.I.P. ?
A $9 Linux-based, super-cheap computer that raised some $2 Million beyond a pledge goal of just $50,000 on Kickstarter will be soon in your pockets.
Four months ago, Dave Rauchwerk, CEO of Next Thing Co., utilized the global crowd-funding corporation ‘Kickstarter’ for backing his project C.H.I.P., a fully functioning computer that offers more than what you could expect for just $9.
C.H.I.P. stands for "Computer Hardware in Products."

At first, the project was looking like a never ending project but here's something exciting — The $9 CHIP computer is shipping.

CHIP packages:
  • 1GHz R8 ARM processor
  • 4GB of internal flash storage
  • 512MB of DDR3 RAM
  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi connection
Looking at the output front of it, CHIP features:
  • A single full-sized USB port
  • Microphone input
  • Headphones output
  • A composite video output that supports older televisions
  • A micro USB that supports OTG
As it is an open source project, CHIP offers support for thousands of open source applications such as:
  • LibreOffice package for editing documents and spreadsheets
  • Chromium for browsing the Web
  • VLC Media Player for playing audios as well as videos
  • Other programs for coding, torrenting, and photo editing, among others
