Chumby one – coming soon

Chumby-One
Steve writes

Yes, the rumors are true.  In October, chumby industries will be launching the new chumby one.  It is every bit a chumby, but still a little different from the chumby classic that you know and love.  Obviously a different look and some other differences that we will soon tell you about, for example an optional battery capability.

For those playing at home, the Chumby is one of the few 100% open source hardware projects in the retaily commercial space. Bunnie and gang have done an excellent job with keeping the design open as well as improving the next gen Chumby. Looks like the new model will have: FM radio and the processor has been bumped up from 350mhz to 454mhz.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.

  1. Hope it shows up being better than the original. I hate it when new products replace the old ones and then turn up much worse.

  2. That looks really neat. Want to see all the specs and whatnot on it.
