Since Chip is so cheap, all sorts of expensive projects—like satellite-building—suddenly become affordable. There could be entire product ecosystems built around the Chip computer.
Chip is a bona fide Kickstarter hit. But the tiny computer’s implications go far beyond the novelty of a cheap computer.
Over the years, a number of ultra-cheap computers have popped up—in fact, a $169 computer for the developing world, called Endless, was announced just last month. But nothing out there can match the price of Chip, a tiny new $9 computer that has attracted over a million dollars in funding on Kickstarter.
Chip can do anything that you might want from a normal computer, albeit a little slower. It runs a fully-functional desktop operating system, along with open-source applications that include pre-installed photo and audio editing, word processing, web access, and email. It also has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity built in.
