Zipit Hacking

Zipit Hacking

zip.jpgThe Zipit is a little $99 WiFi device with LCD screen that is primarily targeted to homes with kids who instant message a lot and would use this as opposed to using a computer just to chat. Some folks are starting to hack it up in some really cool ways, here are a few sites I’ve gathered- Yahoo groups with instructions and posts about getting Linux on it, Zipit’s GNUpage, AiboHack’s Zipit page (he’s doing some amazing stuff) and a great Zipit overview page from Elk Grove wireless. If you’re in to these let me know, we might do an article on it in Make.

    Nifty idea. I’d definatley like to know more about the possibilities for such a device. Especially if it could be made to do more than simply duplicate some of the features on my sidekick.
