I saw this on Ebay but was not sure where to post.

Re: Is this really a Chumby Classic Alpha Prototype?

Seems like Duane addressed this some time back.
Could this be the same thing?

Duane also mentions an alpha prototype in the thread.

Owner of 7 Chumby type units. 3 Sony Dash, 2 Info 8, 2 Info 3.5, and 1 C1.

Re: Is this really a Chumby Classic Alpha Prototype?

Thanks demarks51 for finding those older threads. The ones pertaining to the alpha are from around 10 years ago. The other one is about a first 50 unit.

I find it amazing that these units still find their way into the wild!

I saw this unit on ebay. The sticker looks odd but it may be historical. Wonder if Duane can account for most of the the first 50 or alpha prototypes.

That does appear to be an unused "Foo" or "Katamari" alpha prototype chumby.
