Hi! Just found a 2D/3D accelerated OpenGL ARM board. Might be a "little" overkill as a sensor display - but the price is not! You could even make some fancy real-time powerpoint-like curves... You could play or hear music, while waiting for more sensor data... It has built-in UPS (): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora_(console) Quote: "...Externally accessible UART for hardware hacking and debugging...Brick prevention with integrated bootloader for safe code experimentation...Dimensions: 140x83x27mm..." http://openpandora.org/ Quote: "... * ARM� Cortex�-A8 600Mhz+ CPU running Linux * 430-MHz TMS320C64x+� DSP Core * PowerVR SGX OpenGL 2.0 ES compliant 3D hardware * 800x480 4.3" 16.7 million colours touchscreen LCD * Wifi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth & High Speed USB 2.0 Host * Dual SDHC card slots & SVideo TV output * Dual Analogue and Digital gaming controls * 43 button QWERTY and numeric keypad * Around 10+ Hours battery life ..." http://pandorawiki.org/Category:Categories /Glenn
