There are millions of people whose access to technology is limited by their budget. Not everybody affords a shiny Macintosh or Dell, when their income is just a few hundred dollars a month.
The next computer mastermind or the next technology prodigy kid might get lost in the crowd, because of financial difficulties.
Johnson Jeng decided to give everybody a chance to accomplish their tech dream. He created the world’s first $15 supercomputer: the PINE A64.
PINE A64 is a single board computer that has everything you need to build your project. You don’t need to buy any add-on components to put together your CPU.
Just start by connecting a monitor, keyboard and mouse to it and there’s your full computer!
At 64-bit, 512 RAM and a 1.2Ghz processor, this makes it the most powerful single board computer on the market, at an amazingly affordable price level.
Johnson shared in his interview above with Maker Paradise the key factors that made him the prosperous entrepreneur he is today, and offered his advice on how you can make your crowdfunding project a success.
