Interesting because the retail price will be about $30 or €27.
I think the other Arduino projects (like the Yun, Zero, Due, Tre, Galileo) are ridiculously overpriced for their main target group. I’m a curriculum developer at a University of Professional Education and this is the first Arduino board I consider as a serious option to replace the UNO that the students currently have to buy.
Although I’m curious in which way their eco-system (read libraries like FastLED) is able to adapt to a completely new processor.
Will Intel be able to eat a bigger piece of the embedded processor cake in this way?
Regarding to BLE (4.0) it seems a pain to use this as a virtual serial port under Windows. Any one already know a work around.
