GR8 News! We’ve updated C.H.I.P.’s software, improved our Chrome web flasher, and are bringing back Alpha C.H.I.P. Read on!
CHIP goes 3D (NAND, there’s more!)
Last week we announced 3D acceleration for PocketC.H.I.P., and we’ve already it running Quake 3 and Kodi! Today we’re super excited to announce 3D acceleration for C.H.I.P.!
Head over to our new and improved Chrome web flasher to get 3D on your C.H.I.P.s! As an added bonus for updating, our new C.H.I.P. software will double the storage of all C.H.I.P.s shipped to date. That’s an extra 4 gigs! Curious about the new web flasher? Check out Howie's release notes below.
Alpha C.H.I.P.s from the Vault
We’ve opened up the C.H.I.P. Vault and are bringing back Alpha C.H.I.P.s, limited edition C.H.I.P.s from our first ever production batch. They’re available for the first time since our Kickstarter campaign last year and we’re bundling them together in hack-packs of 10 for all your C.H.I.P. clustering desires! Check them out at getchip.com today!
Keep hacking and stay tuned. There is much much more to come.
Everyone @ NTC
