Qi-Hardware, the community that brought us the Ben NanoNote handheld
computer, have just released their next piece of all-out free and
open hardware: the AtBEN+AtUSB wireless dongles. Aiming for a solution
that works without proprietary firmware blobs, WLAN compatibility was
abandoned. Instead the project went for simpler, yet more open 6LoWPAN

Both atben and atusb are now available at Tuxbrain :)


AtBEN               29,50 EUR
AtBEN-AtUSB Combo   59,00 EUR
AtUSB               41,30 EUR

Cheers Werner Almesberger and Tuxbrain for getting things this far! 
Now we have the chance to join...
