The VoCore2 mini Linux computer is a hobbyist's dream
We’re already thinking about Christmas ideas here at AA Picks, and they don’t come much more original than the VoCore2 mini Linux computer. It’s a petite programming powerhouse and a tech tinkerer’s treasure.
The VoCore2 is open source hardware. It has Wi-Fi, USB, UART, and 20+ GPIOs, but it’s only one-inch square. Amazing really, since it could be used to control your smart home. It’s today’s gadget deal, and also included in this deal is the Ultimate Dock. You can slide a microSD into this to give your VoCore2 extra storage capabilities.
The applications of this tiny computer are virtually endless. With a bit of easy-to-learn coding, you can use it as a VPN gateway to secure your network, an airplay music streaming station, a private cloud to store your data, and so on. It’ll also fit nicely in a stocking.
More VoCore2 ideas:
- Plug in a microSD card to the Ultimate Dock and create a personal cloud server.
- Attach a USB webcam and create a home security camera.
- Link to a microphone to execute voice commands like Apple Siri or Amazon Echo.
Possibilities abound, and right now at Tech Deals the VoCore2 is on offer. For this week only, the usual $50 price tag has been dropped to just $42.99. It delivers in good time for Christmas, but don’t be afraid to self-gift and indulge your inner nerd.
The deal ends this weekend, so hit the button below to learn more.
