CHIP – the $9 Computer More Powerful than a Raspbery Pi

Meet Chip: a new computer perfect for tinkerers that’s cheaper and more powerful than a Raspberry Pi B+.

For just $9, you get a pocket-sized board with a 1GHz processor with WiFi and Bluetooth, 4 GB storage and 512 MB RAM. Chip can also work with any screen, new or old.

You could, of course, use it — along with LibreOffice — to do your taxes or write that novel you keep talking about. Or you could play video games with it. (There’s even an option to buy Chip with a pocket-sized screen and keyboard system.) But we see it as a platform for all kinds of homemade electronics projects.

You can pre-order Chip online, via the Kickstarter campaign.
