Chip, a $9 dollars micro-PC shipping in 2016

The Raspberry Pi popularized the concept of the micro-PC with a compact, $35 no-frills device that didn’t even come with its own case. Now a new micro-PC threatens to make the Raspberry Pi look like a luxury model. Next Thing Co. recently announced a Kickstarter campaign for Chip, a $9 micro-PC shipping in 2016.

The company already has a working prototype with an earlier generation processor, according to Make. But Next Thing lacks the funds to place large enough orders with component makers. It appears a lot of people are excited about the prospect of a $9 micro-PC, however, since at this writing the project had more than 13,000 backers contributing nearly $700,000.
