A view of the internals (not complete at all)
Looks cool, husband would definitely buy it. It's priced competitive to generic offerings like pico pi, but those are a little overpriced.
That said, some market positioning:
- Turing pi and pine board might hit better perf at a lower price
- pi 4s are a better option bc higher ram, faster CPU
- making it generic in terms of unit (multiple mounting holes) would make it more flexible.
- how is the networking integrating?
- the airflow seems reverse what it should be , but that's no big deal
- is the USB multiplexed like kvm, or is it, or is it controlled by a headunit?
Cool stuff overall.
@SortOfTested never heard of Turing Pi, will have a look. Anything with an A53 or better (including the pine64) are nice. The main issue tho is price and I/O, with the HC1 having a fairly mighty processor (beats the pi 4 by a large margin in number of benchmarks), and it has a SATA port (quite valuable).
Making it generic really depends on the board I end up going with. Networking is just a gigabit router, although I may switch to a BPi-R2/64 running OpenWRT (it's nice, cause it can be used as a NAS as well due to the SATA ports).
Airflow, ha, I just grabbed a fan model and pasted it in, forgot about direction, I'm planning on adding in another fan too.
Also, the USB at the moment is just gonna be a direct access to each board, but that is also subject to change.
