Remember when the $35 Raspberry Pi mini-computer seemed crazy cheap? Actually that is still a pretty good price for a computer that’s as versatile as the Pi. But the developers of the CHIP figure there’s room to go lower: they’re running a Kickstarter campaign to bring this computer to market with prices as low as $9 for a basic unit.
Note that the $9 price doesn’t include shipping and it includes only a barebones system with basic features. You’ll need to spend a little more money if you want fancy things like VGA or HDMI adapters (the board itself only has composite video output).
