Have you ever looked at your mobile phone, set-top digital video recorder, camera, or netbook, and thought to yourself, "I could have done better than that"? Have you ever started a complex project - a robot, a UAV, a home media server, or a custom car computer - and wished it had the capacity to run a full operating system? Practical BeagleBoard shows you what happens if you purchase a BeagleBoard, a tiny, inexpensive single-board computer (SBC) with the performance of a smartphone or netbook. It will guide you towards new areas of creativity and let you build a robot or UAV that runs a full Linux distribution instead of being constrained to a small microkernel. You will see how to create your own networked home video server and player that you can velcro to the back of your television. The book will even show you how to design and build your own touchscreen tablet or e-reader. All of these are possible and affordable with the BeagleBoard. This book can teach you all about embedded and small-system design, provide a solid base for your projects, and set your imagination alight. What you'll learn What a BeagleBoard is and how to let your imagination go! Preparing BeagleBoard for work Building a Home Server How to load new operating systems Creating your very own notebook How to contribute to the BeagleBoard community Who this book is for Hobbyists and anyone who wants to use the BeagleBoard for fun projects!
