Topic: Usb-Wifi bridge ?
I was looking at the chumbys' spec to try to use them instead of PDAs in a project I have (makin my old car behave like a recent one), when I suddenly realised that the $150 chumby has something that no cheap PDA supports : USB Host. That mean that with a few coding, the chumby can by use to :
-Replace a $100 print server
-Buy a $20 USB HD enclosure instead of a $50 ethernet one (and you can travel with chumby + HD, you can leave your router at home)
-Turn a $15 webcam into a wireless one (certainly more expensive than this)
If you /need/ that 3 things, it's cheaper to buy a chumby for the same price, and you get free time displaying, a $2 value gift. I think I will have a look, there must be some opensource usb sharing libs somewhere ! I'll keep you informed.
Thanks you for the great little piece of hardware, hope to get one soon :)
