C.H.I.P. Pro Powered Kickstarter - Launching Tomorrow @ 8AM PST
The response to C.H.I.P. Pro has been amazing, but we’ve been getting a lot of questions about what it takes to go from prototype to C.H.I.P. Pro powered consumer product. We’re planning to share many more details, schematics, and code, but we figured it would be best to have a first hand example of what it takes and how it’s done.
C.H.I.P. Pro adds support for multiple microphones and amazing Hi-Fi audio via I2S so it’s only natural that our first refrence design would make use of both. We’re keeping all the details a surprise until tomorrow, but we can say this:
It’s controlled by your voice.
As always, our new voice powered product will be Open Source Hardware so the community can join in and start hacking, making and remixing from day one.
Look for an email tomorrow with a link to Kickstarter to get the whole story, we’re super excited to see what the Chipster community does with the new hardware.
Stay tuned. There is much, much more to come… tomorrow!
