Playing with small computers myself.

Four Parallellas fitted with 16-core Epiphany co-processors arrived from Adapteva about 3 weeks ago. Not yet had chance to play with them, partly for lack of connecting gubbins (now largely sorted) but mostly because of Real Life™ issues. The four credit card machines, four US-pronged power supplies (one of the connecting gubbins problems here in the UK), four SD cards pre-loaded with Ubuntu, shipping, sundry baksheesh and a "free" T-shirt cost a total of £463.46 --- about $790 at the spot rate today.

Also got hold of a DEO-Nano FPGA dev kit at about 15% of the above cost. Cute little thing, also CC sized, with no processor at all --- unless you want to build one yourself. A 32-bit RISC processor is freely available and clocks in at 100 BogoMIPS --- roughly five times as fast as my first Linux box.
