I've got version one of my visual album browser running on a Chumby. You can check it out here: http://www.brendandawes.com/sketches/browsebox/

That is so cool! A bit slow but very cool. Why do you use a Chumby for that? Couldn't you do the same with a PDA/Windows Mobile device?

Because I don't have a PDA! Chumby is a nice simple device that can default to one app too.

That's a good reason. :)

Very cool. So cool, you've been digged (by me)!

Very cool device! I could see myself with one of these, if wireless (and internet) was reliable enough that I could count on it as an alarm clock!

IS it just me, or is it hard to find any information about the device on that web site? What's the technical spec on that device?

You're right. After this topic I did some research and couldn't find much on the net. Even the Chumby website is limited on info. In Europe the device is not on the market yet as far as I can see.

You do have to be registered at their website and logged in to see this
page. Registration is simple and straightforward.

They have device block diagrams, schematics and board layouts online.
Also extensive information about electronic and appearance hacking as
well as development of the Flash widgets that feed it.

As a nice extra, they also allow you to create widget groups and use an
in-browser emulator to run the widgets.

Pretty neat idea really.
