I think this is extremely useful for people like me. As a hobby
project, I could make use of such a board. As a physics teacher, I
could use it to do experiments in the classroom.
In fact, if the marketing is done right (and that includes usable
out-of-the-box software), I think education could be a big market for
such a board, if it's not too expensive. A huge bonus would be if
current sensors could be attached to the board (shouldn't be hard). The
current solutions are all very closed ("press this button and then look
at this number"), and I know I'm not the only teacher who thinks that's
against the spirit of education.
