After a year of waiting it has arrived, the $9 computer from Next Thing Co. When it launched on Kickstarter there was no reason to skip this one to at least see what it was all about. Now that it has arrived I am quite happy I did. For such a large project it would hardly be worth calling it late. My reward was due May 2016 and I received it June 2016. Very good compared to most crowd sourcing campaigns. I selected the C.H.I.P. plus battery reward, but before it shipped you could add accessories. I added the VGA adapter and an extra C.H.I.P. That way I can use it on my desk attached to my monitor since the DVI input is already in use. With the Raspberry Pi I have to connect it to the TV if I want to mess with it directly. At this price its cheap enough to buy more than one that you can dedicate to a project and forget about it.
