Today Asus launched their new Tinker Board in North America. This is one of those products that should be extremely exciting for some and baffling for others. If you have ever had any interest in a Raspberry Pi then you are most likely interested in the new Asus Tinker Board. For me I’m excited to see bigger names jumping into the market. Raspberry Pis have been all over the place powering small and large projects, being used as tiny servers, and used in robotics and other maker activities. The Tinker Board follows a very similar form factor, has built in Bluetooth and WiFi with a 1.8GHz Rockchip SoC quad core powering things.
