Why did I post this here I hear you ask , well this will run off 6v , if you're up to programming in Lunix Os and can make I/O boards for this it would let you add in a huge amount of working features to models which would include using it through a WiFi system ( how about having it online on your own website and you using a smart phone to get it to switch options or give you a message when the battery strength is low )

This could be ideal for someone who likes to tinker with programming and for manufacturers wanting to access easily adaptable hardware for programmable functions

If my programming "skills" were the same as they were 25 years ago I'd have a couple of these to play about with , unfortunately its been 20 years since I did any serious programming so I'd be lost with this now lol
