Worlds smallest i.MX6 module has onboard WiFi, eMMC

Variscite unveiled a 50 x 20mm “DART-MX6? module that runs Linux or Android on the Freescale i.MX6, with up to 64GB eMMC flash and -40 to 85°C support. Variscite’s claim that the 50 x 20mm DART-MX6 is the world’s smallest computer-on-module based on Freescale’s i.MX6 system-on-chip appears to be a valid one. It beats the smallest ones we’ve seen to date: TechNexion’s 40 x 36mm PICO-IMX6, and Solid-Run’s 47 x 30mm microSOM i4. It’s also just a hair larger than Variscite’s own 52 x 17mm DART-4460, which is based on a dual-core TI OMAP4460 SoC, and Gumstix’s slightly larger 58 x 17mm Overo modules, which use TI Sitara AM37xx SoCs.

Linux-powered quadcopter acts like a smart shuttlecock

On Kickstarter, Zyro is pitching a “DroneBall” quadcopter that runs Linux on Gumstix COMs and acts like a smart aerial ball for multi-player games. The Zyro DroneBall doesn’t look like a ball — nor does it act like any ball you’ve ever seen that isn’t made of Flubber. The quadcopter can hover, zig, and zag within a virtual aerial arena, mimicking a hockey puck, soccer ball, or an Ultimate Frisbee disc, says Zyro. It can even take the role of an extra player on the field interacting with another DroneBall.

Tiny COMs get capacitive multi-touch baseboard

Gumstix is shipping a capacitive multi-touch ready, customizable baseboard for its Overo COMs that works with a new Overo Storm-P COM with enhanced WiFi. The “Arbor 43C” is a capacitive touchscreen replacement for the resistive-ready Gumstix Chestnut 43 baseboard, and similarly pairs with the company’s Linux-ready gumstick-sized Overo computer-on-modules. The new baseboard enables the attachment of a 4.3-inch multi-touch touchscreen, including separately available displays made by Newhaven Display International.
