What’s a chumby? It’s a beanbag with a 3.5″ LCD color touchscreen. Chumbies run linux and have wireless internet.
I’m struck by three things:
(1) “The chumby is “open” for tinkering in every way: hardware and software specifications are available online, plus the pattern for crafting new cases.” –So the user has control
(2) These devices are cheap ($179.95)
(3) They are *so* cute–take a look at some hacked Chumbies
