ODROID-Magazine-201602

Many ODROID users loved the ODROID-W, which was discontinued in 2014. Since then, many requests were made for a similar IoT computer that could be used for industrial applications, wearables, and anything that required a minimal hardware footprint and low power consumption. Hardkernel has responded with the ODROID-C0, which has the computing power of the popular ODROID-C1 with some of the interfaces removed, so that users can build the perfect device to exactly fit their needs. An example application of the ODROID-C0 is the OWEN compact robot, designed by Bo at Ameridroid, that can walk, dance, and show facial expressions via a web interface. The ODROID-C0 is available at http://bit.ly/1WFYKOL for USD$25.
