He’s not prepared to release it just yet as he’s ashamed of some of its internal messiness, but lets hope that changes with time."

Yes, I remember watching the various versions of N-O-D-E....

Fun to see how it evolved....the last version is a bit chunky.....although it has plenty of ports and good venting....  

What do you think about another variant, the Noodle Pi ?
