Kaugummi Computer


Kaugummi is a small FPGA-based single-board computer designed to be used standalone or as part of a cyberdeck or wearable computer. In some cases it can be used as a drop-in replacement for a Raspberry Pi Zero.

Kaugummi can directly drive an RGB LCD display with a 40-pin FFC connector. It is designed to be powered by Nickel using 6 AA NiMH batteries.

Currently available for reservation. Final appearance, specifications, pricing and features subject to change.
