New affordable portable camera/dev board combo, what do you think?


#1

Hey everyone,

New to the forum, but wanted to grab some hardware-related feedback about this new mini-camera and dev board we’ve just come out with!

It’s called the Lamobo D-1, and the idea behind it was to make a combo camera and development board that was as portable and affordable as possible while still packing it full of multi-media features, namely an HD camera and hefty built-in storage capacity.

Our favorite part though, is that like the Raspberry Pi, the board is Linux-based, so if you’re not a big Arduino fan or you’re particularly comfortable with Linux, it’s a great board to work with. Unlike the RP, though, it’s affordable and already comes with the cool accessories.

Anyway, we’re really eager to know what the Linux and development community think of the D-1, so we’d love any feedback you guys have, thanks!

Here’s the site (still in Chinese now, English one will be up soon!) and specs:
