I am at a design phase for building what I call a universal computer. Still design phase, name may change.
This is going to be a open source project.
The device is essentially a portable computer. That is the ultimate goal for it. It would be able to plug in to different monitors, TV's and even a LCD screen. Be able to have WiFi and other ways of connecting that the user might want.
It would be able to fit into your pocket as well.
Now to where I need help. I have never done anything like this before. I have done research, enough to get it done.
I know I would need a processor, form of BIOS, I plan on using flash for internal memory which means a flash controller, and also a power distributor and controller. Ram and video card are considered outside of the core device just in case someone isn't please with the given ram or video card they can replace it.
There would be slots if you open it up where you can plug in serial ports for developers and internal add-ons.
Any advice? Ideas, or contributions? Open source I will accept anything.
