Super small and battery driven

Postby thusgaard » Mon Feb 11, 2013 5:48 pm

Hi

I'm looking for a super small and battery driven Linux box. It has to work with a webcam and a memory stick.

Does anyone make a box like that?

Yes I thought about Pi, but even the new small Pi has a high power consumption. I'd love to see 24-48 hours of running without charging. And I would like a ready to go solution. I'm not going to invent my own battery pack solution,

I just remembered UBUNTU for phones/Android. But will it let me take pictures with a webcam instead of the onboard cams. Maybe this it the solution to my question although it seam very expensive compared to Pi.

Reconsidering the Pi with an XP18000 powerpack.
