Snickerdoodle is no ordinary maker board… it will let you achieve your wildest maker dreams from robotics to advanced networking! And their crowdfunding campaign is about to finish… so it’s your last chance to grab the”Raspberry Pi for Robots”
A maker board with super powers
Most makers will have experienced a feeling of frustration when realising that they’re out of I/O on their maker board… Or maybe looking for that little bit of extra computing power for video compression. If you can feel that pain, Snickerdoodle is for you!
Snickerdoodle has been built for makers who want to get more our of their existing maker board… Let’s look inside the board:
As Ryan Cousins Co-Founder of CEO of krtkl (the company behind Snickerdoodle) told us:
“Looking at what was available for people who can’t necessarily afford to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to try something out, or learn a new skill, or get started on a project, it was obvious that there was a huge gap between basic, low-end, ultra-affordable maker boards and high-end tools that professionals use – there was always some massive tradeoff that had to be made that would inevitably lead to disappointment and frustration. With snickerdoodle, we’re providing professional-caliber tools at maker-friendly prices and, in a sense, “democratizing” advanced technology in order to make it possible for makers, students, hobbyists, inventors, entrepreneurs, and engineers to truly create something different.”
And Ubuntu Core…
Snickerdoodle have now added Ubuntu Core support and that’s opening the door to even more possibilities! Combining Ubuntu Core support for ROS and the onboard FPGA makes it super simple to bring fast image recognition or image compression for drones and robots. Similarly combining Ubuntu Core and the Zynq bring advanced low latency routers only a few lines of code away. By using Ubuntu Core for your project, you’re also choosing a platform that will allow you to turn your maker dream into a commercial reality, with the tools to support and monetise your products over the long term.
