yeah. started by a GOOGLE engineer who has access to GOOGLE
engineering mailing lists and lots of friends at GOOGLE the project
hit its funding goal within a couple of hours.
it basically uses a DisplayLink adaptor. DisplayLink adaptors
actually contain a full CPU with a built-in GPU and hardware
accelerated video decode engines, and they require some DDR RAM to
hold the framebuffers and so on. it's a bit like a
hardware-accelerated version of doing X11 (or a less sophisticated
version of RDesktop) over USB instead of over a network.
it would be very interesting to emulate a DisplayLink adapter using a
USB-OTG port set up in "client" mode. the drivers are availalbe for
linux: they have been for some time. that way it would be possible to
run a full-blown OS.... oh that happened to turn into a "display".
