Today I wanted to give a little plug to Bunnie and the guys at Chumby. We just love what they are doing, and its good to see another hardware company hacking away, opening up their stuff, and figuring out how to build shit in China. We are tool freaks here (obviously) so I wanted to in particular push people towards Bunnie’s article on the tools people are using to design electronics these days.
He talks about some pretty cool stuff, and while the minimalist in me doesn’t think we will get there with our tools for a little while, the dreamer just loves the thought of making this functionality accessible, through a browser, to a wider audience. Anyway, thats really it for today. Check out the Chumby! Hell, just go buy one and hack on it a little bit – they’re pretty cheap.
