Bitmark publishes a YouTube video with bunnie discussing open source, learning, and more:
Andrew “bunnie” Huang, hacker and open source hardware innovator, Singapore. Best known for his work hacking the Microsoft Xbox and efforts in designing open source hardware, including the Chumby (app-playing alarm clock), Chibitronics (peel-and-stick electronics for craft), and Novena (DIY laptop), Huang received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from MIT in 2002. He currently runs a private product design studio, Kosagi, and actively mentors several startups and students of the MIT Media Lab.

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. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Coincidentally, I’m waiting on a PyPortal delivery today that I’m going to try and mount in an old Chumby.
I’m hoping to draw power over the Chumbilical, as well as send the audio through it to the back speakers.
