Fomu's Open Source Community is Awesome

Hello everyone! In this update I'd like to highlight some of the really cool projects people are already doing with Fomu. With just under three weeks to go until the Fomu crowdfunding campaign officially ends, people have started to play with some prerelease "hacker" editions of the board, and are coming up with some pretty cool designs. Read on to find some of the highlights. Also, remember that Fomu prices will go up once the campaign ends! Read the full update.

Fomu EVT Board ( + Fomu for One)

An EVT board revision is used to validate the schematic is correct, and to help develop the software. This EVT board is what we'll use to develop the USB stack and to make sure we've got the power and other hardware parts wired up right.
