Wanted to share this:
It is essentially a computer in a case that looks like a guitar pedal. It runs Arch Linux and uses the LV2 (LADSPA v2) architecture to provide a bunch of effects plugins that can be plugged together and routed in different ways. So, you buy the pedalboard once, and then you can put an infinite number of effects together.
I think it is a neat campaign, and the organization behind it seem really cool. It is built using Linux and open technologies, and I just bought one, and I figured I would share it here too.
