BeagleBone Black Project Spotlight: GrannyCam

The holidays are around the corner, and with them come the fun and excitement of big family gatherings. However, a lot of families are spread across the country and not able to get together for the holidays. That’s why Charles Hamilton developed GrannyCam, a safe, durable videophone that his kids can use to stay in touch with their grandparents, not only during the holiday season but throughout the year. In September, the device received great response and an Editor’s Choice Blue Ribbon from Make Magazine at Maker Faire New York.

If you liked the BeagleBone, you will love the next gen BeagleBone Black! With a blistering 1GHz processor, 512MB onboard DDR3 RAM, built in 2GB storage with pre-installed Linux operating system (no microSD card required!), and best of all, the addition of a MicroHDMI connector for audio/video output. This is a ultra-powered embedded computer that can fit in a mint tin.
