Atomwear is a micro, modularized, open source, wearable BLE device for DIYers. It makes any BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy) projects easier.
Yixia Gao's insight:

Good news for electronic DIYers! Kickstarter lines on an incredibly innovative project- Atomwear, which is a micro, modularized, open source, wearable BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy) device for DIYers.
Atomwear appeals to all those interested in the latest advances of the tech field. It makes any BLE projects easier. Just like building blocks for kids, Atomwear components allow you to build it into whatever you like, to create more fantastic modules, or to speed up your development cycles. Even though you are neither a programmer nor an electronic engineer, you can also use Atomwear to make a wrist strap by yourself. All you need to do is just assembling Atomwear modules with FPC and putting them into a rubber ring.

Atomwear is multi-functional. It features many micro-sized modules. Using acceleration sensor module, combined with our pedometer algorithms, it can act as a Pedometer and Motion tracker. Assemble the Temperature & Humidity sensor module with the OLED display module, you can easily get the real-time temperature and humidity. By detecting the distance changes, BLE MCU module plays a role of Bluetooth intelligent anti-lost locator. And many other functions, like Pressure & Altitude detection, E-Compass, Gesture recognition, HID Input, Bluetooth Smart Beacon, etc. Use your imagination, you can do more than you can expected! The possibilities are endless!

In terms of overall performance, Atomwear takes your DIY projects to the next level and it’s a powerful tool for education and creativity. Now the fund-raising activity is hot on Kickstarter. Your support will make it easier to buy components in bulk quantities at much lower prices, as well as be able to have the Atomwear boards assembled professionally. In return, you will get a more powerful Atomwear at a lower price. Time is ticking , go to kickstarter to get the details right now!

Giayee P105 is a Wall-Mountable Rockchip based Android / Ubuntu mini PC with a VGA Output

Giayee P105 is a Wall-Mountable Rockchip based Android / Ubuntu mini PC with a VGA Output | Atomwear | Scoop.it
Yixia Gao's insight:

There is no denying the fact that Raspberry Pi has helped raise awareness of the possibilities for not only small but also inexpensive computers. But it's not powerful enough to do some CPU-heavy work, while faster options are emerging for users attracted to such board-like devices.
Giayee P105 Quard-Core ARM Ubuntu/Android Mini PC is just a powerful alternative.
Giayee P105 is based on a Quad core 1.6GHz Rockchip RK3188 SoC with integrated GPU (quad Mali-400), enabling the device to run as a server (email, file, web) and also as a media center. Although Raspberry Pi can do these things also but Giayee P103C is faster. Besides, Giayee P103C can support high-end features such as 1080P video.
Compared with Raspberry Pi's one HDMI port, Giayee P103C supports VGA port, with 16 or 32bpp color depth, can be set up to 1920x1080 definition. The Giayee P105's three USB ports also gives it a bit more breathing room, relative to the one on BeagleBone Black.
There are two configurations depending on which CPU ,how much RAM and on-board flash storage you want. The less expensive Giayee P105 goes for $49 and has Rockchip RK3168 Dual core ARM Cortex A9 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of flash.By comparation the BeagleBone Black revision C has a single core ARM with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of flash and is offered at $55.
Giayee P105 will blow your doors off with high-performance specs, but it will not blow all the cash in your wallet. If you want a small low-powered, low-cost but powerful machine Giayee P105 might be just what you are looking for. Even if you are happy with your current device, this would make a great gift or perhaps a great backup device.
