Seriously, I’ve spent more on dirt for our backyard garden than you’d end up paying for this tablet from Allgo Systems. Technology demonstrations, such as in the accompanying video, lower barriers of entry and expose new possibilities that normally wouldn’t exist.

What sort of projects would you build with cut-rate tablet hardware? [via liliputing]
