YBox 2 Set-top Box Kit

Ever eye over a Chumby and think to yourself, “That’s one cool gadget, but I’m not looking to spend the cash on a widget machine.” That we have and I’m sure the creators of the YBox 2 Kit have as well. This DIY kit allows you to build and create your own machine that displays customizable content. Think Chumby meets inner-city Detroit.

Based on the Parallax Propeller chip, this little kit runs WAY faster than your old 486DX ever did. You can output video via a composite jack, network via DHCP with your broadband connection, use a remote with the built-in IR sensor and so much more. Lady Ada is selling the kit for a measly $75 and very few are left. Hit the link to grab one while you still can.
