Here’s an awesome tiny linux box called SheevaPlug, basically super-tiny Linux box running on ARM processor and minimal hardware. The linux box can connect easily to your network and USB devices while only using 5 watts of power.
This will be a great tool for linux tinkerers and hackers, who should be able to make most of this device.
I can already think of dozen ideas on how to apply this for security systems, alarm systems, etc…etc…
The platform is built using Marvell’s Kirkwood series system-on-chip (SoC) design with a 1.2GHz Marvell Sheeva™ CPU processor equipped, 512Mbytes of FLASH and 512Mbytes of DRAM. The plug also features a 2.0 USB port to allow users to run applications that require a hard disk or other peripheral.
