"Snickerdoodle is a $55 ARM-based development board that launched as a competitor to the popular $35 Raspberry Pi. Snickerdoodle is currently in crowdfunding mode, with a projected product release date of March 2016 if the group reaches its funding goal. I spoke with Ryan Cousins, who is the co-founder and CEO of krtkl, Inc., the company attempting to manufacture the Snickerdoodle. He told me that the initial idea was to create a product for high-end industrial robotics projects. However, he and his team realized there might be interest in the board from makers and other hobbyists."

Snickerdoodle may be what some here have said they are waiting for.

This is beyond cool, thanks for sharing, Jim! I can't believe the $55 price tag on this, it really has a good chance of changing the way professional-grade consumer electronics can be modeled and tested by entrepreneurs and new-comers to the market.
