VIA APC Rock and Paper Cardboard Computer

VIA Technologies, Inc., today announced APC Rock and Paper.

Rock is a complete redesign of the original APC. With a faster processor, more memory, and lots of expandability, Rock is the perfect system for prototyping projects. APC Paper, with its unique recycled cardboard case, is a $99 computer for people wanting to connect to the Internet without the need for specific Windows applications.

Both Rock and Paper run a custom Android system built for keyboard and mouse input. Also included are a full set of consumer I/O ports and an extensive set of on-board pin headers for expansion, enabling APC to connect to your PC monitor or TV.

Documentation, bootloader, and kernel source codes are available for download now at http://apc.io/library.
