AgonLight is also an embedded BASIC computer as it has plenty of GPIOs available to interact with other components and modules. The AgonLight was designed by Bernardo Kastrup and the Quark firmware is developed by Dean Belfield.
Olimex got a few inquiries from customers asking if was possible to produce this project. After exchanging a few words with Bernardo via Twitter, they became confident that this is a true open source hardware project.
They decided to do some small changes to correct errata and make it manufacturable.
AgonLight2 is on the Olimex website and available for pre-order with a special Christmas price of EUR 50 for a completely assembled, programmed and tested computer.
