In printing houses, designers are constantly coming up with the most original forms and varieties of business cards. But embedded systems engineer George Hilliard decided to turn a piece of paper into a full-fledged computer running Linux. This business card can be used as an external drive.
If you evaluate the power of a business card as a computer, then it hardly reaches the analogs of Raspberry Pi or Orange Pi. The card contains the minimum number of radio components and microcircuits, but, according to the creator, its performance can be easily improved by changing the concept of the circuit.
The card has an 8 MB drive - this is the section of memory that can be used to install small applications. To download the pre-installed version of Linux, it is enough to connect the business card to the computer via the built-in USB connector. According to George Hilliard, the author of the technological accessory, two Python text interpreters are sewn into its memory.
You can use the gadget as a flash drive, however, the volume of 8 MB will not allow you to store any multimedia files. The developer estimated his brainchild at $2.88.
