Nick Lee managed to install Windows 95 on an Apple Watch. The process was not straightforward but he succeed after a few tweaks to the WatchKit app. The Apple Watch take about an hour to boot Windows 95 due to the reason that it’s an emulated version and not a virtualized one. Apple Watch runs it’s processor at 520 MHz, has 512 MB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage.

UP – Intel x5-Z8300 board in a Raspberry Pi2 form factor

up_board

UP, the credit card computer board for makers powered by Intel Quad Core Atom X5-8300 1.84GHz, running Linux, Windows 10, and Android

We haven’t seen anything like that on the market. We saw plenty of cost effective boards, often powered by RISC technology, and industrial solutions with a wide range of standard form factors, performance and technology but with high prices and poor or absent community support. We tried to merge the best of the two worlds, makers and industrial market. Maybe we were asking for too much. Or maybe not. We put the best x86 low power consumption and high performance technology available today in the market into a credit card size board and created a community to support it.
The answer is UP.

UP is a credit card size board which merges the benefits of Raspberry Pi2, the standard “de facto” of makers with the high performance and low power consumption of latest tablet technology : the Intel Cherry Trail Atom Quad Core x5-Z8300 64 bits up to 1.84GHz ( http://ark.intel.com/products/87383/Intel-Atom-x5-Z8300-Processor-2M-Cache-up-to-1_84-GHz ). Thanks to the 14nm technology, the CPU is rated at only 2W SDP.

by Graham Prophet @ edn-europe.com:

Running on Apple iPad, Android, Microsoft Windows and Linux, LabNation’s (Antwerp, Belgium) open source USB oscilloscope, SmartScope, is the result of a Kickstarter campaign commenced in 2014 – the project raised 645% of the funding goal within 30 days.

Believed to be the first test equipment designed to run on multiple operating systems and platforms such as smartphones, tablets and PCs, the lightweight SmartScope is powered directly from the host’s USB interface suiting it for many test and measurement applications far from the workbench.
