What can you do with a Cubesat?
Lots of things, apparently, like ExoplanetSat and Quakesat.
Cubesats are wonderful entry points for understanding space tech, both for DIYers and even countries who haven’t the budget or resources for large-scale projects. Combine it with an Arduino platform and you’ve still got money left over for a good meal.
The challenge? Getting it up and out…into space. Piggybacking on other rockets is a fine idea, but there’s limited space and a long waiting list. We’re still waiting for the next Elon Musk to build a business model around launch vehicles full of Arduino and Raspberry Pi payloads.

Udoo mini computer combines best of Arduino and Raspberry Pi
If you’re frustrated with all the shields (like WiFi) you have to stack onto Arduino or struggling with Raspberry Pi’s lack of horsepower, Udoo’s the answer. Combining the best of both platforms, it’s currently “80 percent complete,” according to the developers’ Kickstarter video.
Let’s hope it’s not hardware hype…or voodoo.
