Odroid-U3 Computer

Ok so many things have changed recently with ex-builder. when V4 is released we are not specifically confined to windows in order to run our robots. A while back there was a small computer mentioned but was written off because it only ran android and linux. However now i think it may be a great option for someone trying to run an onboard computer! its only $60 too...

Thread where it was mentioned:

ez-robot thread

website to company:

i could be completely wrong in thinking this could work... but for the price i really hope that it does! :D

This is interesting! You could put the ARC app on the android software.
#2  
That's what I'm thinking as well! the only concern I had was if we could program the ARC app/project to open on startup....
#4  
that's perfect *eek* I will have to try it with the app version we have now.
#5  
Just pointing this out but there are hundreds of android "pc" devices and also android TV devices that are very small and will run ARC. I would recommend you get one of at least 1.0ghz dual core cpu if not a quad core.
#6  
Will these android "pc" devices run a Voice recognition app as well.....Are we saying goodbye to windows OS?
#7  
Not just yet I robot , windows has more power and will handle much more going on at one time. Plus it can run 5 boards at once for either a complicated project or up to 5 individual ones.

And windows is still required to actually program your project... I believe the android app can only "run" the project
