Daniel tipped us off to a new consumer device in the works called the NeTV. It’s being branded as an inline device to allow the transformation of dumb HD TVs into smart ones. You can check out the consumer features on the “What is” wiki. Since it is coming from chumby industries it looks like it will have good support for developers and hackers.
NeTV is a robust, wifi-enabled embedded linux computer that can connect to HD video sources and sinks. It has very strong potential applications in education, digital signage, smart energy, and low-cost computing.
Definitely keeping my eye on this project. 😀
