The rise of embedded systems

You might have been familiar to Raspberry Pi, a Single-Board Computer (SBC) made for hobbyist and DIYer.

Now SBC market gets somewhat more exciting with Intel’s Minnowboard Max, which runs an 1.91 GHz Atom processor, at only $99.

But the most interesting one is nVidia’s Jetson K1, which features an ARM Cortex A15 CPU and a Kepler-class GPU with 192 CUDA cores, at $192. This means your CUDA code can now run efficiently on a 127mm x 127 mm piece of board.

Any idea how to monetize from those sexy babies?
