Can open source kick-start the hardware hobbyist market?

,----[ Quote ]
| Texas Instruments thinks it can. That is why they have placed their latest
| OMAP 35xx chip on to a USB-powered board for distribution by Digi-Key of
| Minnesota.
|
| The resulting product is called the Beagle Board, and it went on sale online
| this week, said Jason Kridner, open platforms principal architect for TI.
| Want a second distribution option? It will be on print catalogs in time for
| Christmas.
|
| “We’ve got 480 developers on the mailing list, and they talk about
| applications in gaming, smart cards, media centers, prosthetic medical
| devices, even autonomous robots.”
