BeagleBone Cape Design Contest – winners announced
Texas Instruments has announced the winners of the BeagleBone Cape Plug-in Board Design Contest, announced back in November. The three winning submissions are: Replicape for 3D printers; Interacto providing a foundation for building robots and flying drones; and Geiger Cape, which measures radiation counts.
Developers, students, and general makers and hobbyists worldwide were invited to create innovative new expansion boards or “capes”, made specifically for the BeagleBone (a credit-card-sized Linux computer that connects with the Internet and runs software such as Android 4.1.2 and Ubuntu, based on TI’s Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 processors).
