Top 10 BeagleBoard projects

-August 01, 2013

Since BeagleBoard was born five years ago, the four open-source BeagleBoard.org platforms (BeagleBoard, BeagleBoard-xM, BeagleBone, and, most recently, BeagleBone Black) have made a deep impact on the open-source world. They have enabled fun and functional projects, including superhero costumes, robots, and home automation gadgets.

In celebration of BeagleBoard's fifth birthday, we're taking a look at 10 of the coolest projects that BeagleBoard platforms have enabled since 2008.

Iron Man Costume



When one kid wanted to be Iron Man for Halloween, his hacker parents put together the coolest Halloween costume in town. This costume, complete with audio at bootup and repulsor sound effects, is powered by the BeagleBoard with Angstrom Linux. Watch out Spiderman, you've got competition.
