---- REVIEW ---- So, Let me Start my review of this product. Single Board Computers are quickly catching up the market and probably in near future Hackers and Developers will be carrying a Hackable Tablet having Arduino Built in it . Even more fascinating up-coming technology is the Internet of Things (IoT). The RIoT Board or Revolutionizing the Internet Of things Fits Perfectly into the domain. First of all, I want to thank Element14 and the RoadTest Program for selecting me for this Exciting RoadTest. As Exciting as the board is I really had fun playing with it. This Board is currently Not for Hobbiest's like Raspberry Pi but with the Awesome Support and Community It will Soon Be. This Board can be closely compared to Beagle Bone Black with more RAM and eMMC, further it has more...

First thanks for Element14 offering me this opportunity of RoadTest. The RIoTBoard reached me several days after my application was selected, which is quite fast for a over-sea shipping. My proposal was to run QT-based TauLabs GCS on RIoTBoard. The software part of the project involves installing Linux and compile GCS from source. Install and Config Debian While Tau Labs has released an official release for Android(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.taulabs.androidgcs) which would run on RIoTBoard. I decided to compile and run the GCS software on Debian, as it would be no difference from using any Android tablet if I use the built-in Android on RIoTBoard. It is very easy to write the Debian image compiled by selsinork to a micro SD card with tools like dd(1)....

I received my RIoTBoard for roadtesting at the end if June. Unfortunately there were a couple of unpleasant surprises when I started to use it. Somehow I had thought that it is powered via micro USB as for example Raspberry Pi, but it turned out that RIoTBoard uses a standard barrel jack for power. Luckily I had such a 5V adapter available. At the moment my full HD TV is the only display with HDMI input at my home, but when I tried to use that for RIoTBoard, it said “Unsupported video format”. So I took my RIotBoard to the office and connected it with a full HD monitor there. It booted up nicely and I played around with the Android OS a bit.
I couldn’t spend too much time at the office for a full review and couldn’t get any other displays with HDMI input at home. So I...
