Das U-Boot (Universal Bootloader) is an open source, primary boot loader used in embedded devices. It is available for a number of different computer architectures, including PPC, ARM, MIPS, AVR32, x86, 68k, Nios, and MicroBlaze.
The PandaBoard is a low-power, low-cost single-board computer based on the Texas Instruments OMAP4430 processor. It is a community supported development platform and is the first OMAP4 mobile software development platform.
The PandaBoard supports both DVI(Digital–Visual Interface) as well as HDMI(High-Definition Multimedia Interface).
Small board is connected to two LCD headers on the bottom of PandaBoard, and provides simple interface to LVDS LCD panels like those you can find in notebooks. Board supports EDID/I2C interface for automatic display settings setup. Also, there is support for LCD brightness, including automatic brightness control with help of ambient light sensor.
Schematic and Gerbers are available under GPL license.
Also, you can order bare PCB, fully assembled board, or bundle of board with LCD with capacitive touchscreen.
“The FAT file system is a widely used file system for mobile phones and other embedded devices for Multi-media applications such as MP3, video images and recording. This is because of FAT is Desktop PC compatible. But, the FAT file system is susceptible to power-failure causing corruption of file system Meta data and user data. In embedded environment corruption of data is undesirable. This paper implements a mechanism to log all file system operation and then committing to the FAT table and directory entries.
Our Project name is viSparsh.This word has been coined by our team. It is a conglomeration of two words namely vision (Vis) & Touch (Sparsh). We felt the name ViSparsh truly depicted the purpose of our project which was to aid the visually impaired people through the sense of Touch. We also thought this as an apt name for our team too whereby the same word would signify our team's aim of touching the lives of several people through our vision.
Gestures are a powerful means of communication among humans. In fact, gesturing is so deeply rooted in our communication that people often continue gesturing when speaking on the telephone. Hand gestures provide a separate complementary modality to speech for expressing ones idea. Information associated with hand gestures in a conversation is degree, discourse structure, spatial and temporal structure. So, a natural interaction between humans and computing devices can be achieved by using hand gestures for communication between them.

Kozio, Inc. (www.kozio.com) has made available free use of their kDiagnostics® Suite, for owners of PandaBoard. Users of the PandaBoard have an interactive guided tour of the inner workings of the board, along with a full design verification and hardware validation solution.
picoFlamingo is a portable presentation solution initially developed for the BeagleBoard and picoDLP projector, but it can be executed in any OpenGL ES 2.0 compliant system. Slides can contain text, images, live video streams, and 3D objects that can be animated in a 3D space and dynamically updated to produce advanced user interfaces. When used in combination with NetKitty, picoFlamingo can be controlled remotely through any Bluetooth or network enabled device. Simple remote control tools for Symbian S60, OpenMoko, and Android 1.5 are included.
No idea if anyone is working on this. But I hope so. I am not a developer -- I'm a dreamer. I just want this so that I can finally jettison my huge klunky Dell and get a truly low-latency, very-powerful, low-power, and low-cost alternative.
