The Open Laptop PLUS New $149 Level Added
Thank you all for your support and interest in Darkmatter. As you know, we launched our Kickstarter as an Xbox laptop. But what we've built is far more generic. Essentially, we're creating an Open Laptop platform that will be able to house many different kinds of boards, such as Raspberry Pi, x86 NUC boards, Pandaboards, Beagleboards and more.
Have you always wanted to create your own multi-board Raspberry Pi laptop? The Darkmatter case and electronics are well suited for a project like that. What about a MIPS based laptop housing your favourite multi-core MIPS board? No worries! Darkmatter includes a driver board and LCD which can be easily interfaced with most embedded boards via VGA input.
Darkmatter is going to be about FAR MORE than just Xbox gaming. We're looking at ways to adapt the system to incorporate PS3 and other console electronics also. But we NEED the Kickstarter to be successful! So if any of this sounds cool and useful to you, PLEASE help us spread the word and do consider backing us! We want to revolutionize custom mobile computing with Darkmatter.
Oh, and one more thing! We've added a $149 level which includes the Xduino360, speakers, breakout board, fans and connectors. Basically, all the electronics other than the LCD/driver board and the console itself. Some folks mentioned that they wanted to use a different display, but needed all the other electronics we've built. So now there's a new reward level that takes care of that preference!Thank you VERY MUCH for all your support! Help us get to the finish line. Spread the message via Twitter, Facebook or email your friends. Darkmatter promises to be a REALLY exciting project and we can make it happen with your backing!
Best wishes and have a wonderful Memorial Day!
