Just wanted to throw out ideas on using these little computers in new ways. Sure it is a $100 tablet. But, what interesting projects could you see yourself doing with this $100 computer.

 

@ Home?

7G3 + HDMI + Netflix + MX Player + Games = HD Multimedia/Game Box

7G3 + Fridge Mount = Family Calendar and Database (Cooking? Planning? etc)

7G3 + Facebook + GTalk = Connecting Gma/Gpa to the grandkids

7G3 + Books + Games + GTalk/Facebook = Connecting homebound elderly

 

@School?

7G3 + open textbooks + sagenb.org = no more traditional texts?

 

... Any other hacker projects you are thinking about? (In your car, work, etc)

Tablet in cars/navigation would be cool, but we are currently missing GPS and bluetooth support Confused

When I can access a device, I'll see if I can add bluetooth modules, so we could use those cheap bluetooth GPS for navigation.

Adding a USB TV stick would be really handy! as it is i use skifta and MX player to stream recordings from my humax freeview recorder with excellent results!    Hard wiring a full size USB socket should'nt be too hard, as would adding a bluetooth module and 3g via stripping down the archos USB stick and hard wiring it inside!

I really like this topic, I totally agree there are many ways to make this tablet more useful and even make profit out there.

 

I am thinking of a timecard device for companies, or perhaps a invoice signing tool for contractors.

 

There are also many usb or bluetooth hardware tools out there which you can create a device and communicate with the tablet, for example blood pressure or temperature monitor, home security system, fancy remote control for home electrical appliances (lights, coffee maker, tv's, radios, etc.

Once I get Google Play we're planning to use the tablet at hubby's concerts -

 

7G3 + Musicnotes + Word +  = Lyric book or sheet music

7G3 + Paypal + PayPal Here App + PayPal Scanner = Cash Register

Don't forget the 7 G3 does not have Bluetooth support.

It should be possible to add it, at least for certain BT dongle adapters, like it has been done for other devices (ex Arnova 7 G2)

I'll have a look at that soon.

Cheers.
