For many hackers/modders/makers the hardest part of a project is getting a strong platform to work on. The goal of this project is to enable innovation by providing a very simple and cheap device that provides a powerful, open source platform that is not just capable of being modded, but designed for it.
-All case parts will be 3d printed or easily obtainable (local hardware store).
-The tablet's main board will be open source.
-The screen and touch screen will be easily obtainable and as cheap as possible.
-The design will leave room for as many mods as possible while still being portable.
The end goal is a "hacker's tablet", not a device that is in itself complicated, but rather the opposite, a device that is simple, innovative and designed with hackers and makers in mind so that they can develop the next iteration of mobile technology.
