A new maker board promises incredible performance, able to drive three 4K Displays.

A new maker board based in Intel CPU makes the Raspberry Pi 3 look old and useless. The Udoo X86 merges the PC world with the Arduino 101 world enabling new applications that go way beyond what is possible on a Pi 3.

The Udoo X86 embeds the newest Arduino 101, with all the upgrades including 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope and Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity.

The Arduino-compatible platform onboard is connected with the main processor through an internal USB port. The Intel Quad Core processor and the Arduino-compatible platform can communicate with each other.

The interconnection between the two systems is the distinctive feature of Udoo X86 The board is designed to allow the Arduino 101-compatible micro controller to run when the Intel CPU is powered off, and wake it up. This allows to create powerful IoT solutions on a single low cost board.

Users can run Windows 7 and higher, Linux or Android on the Intel CPU. You can use it as full home PC or media center. The Udoo X86 can drive up to 3 4K displays simultanously. 

The maker community is already excited about the Udoo X86 board and raised over $618,000 from over 3,300 backers in a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. The first Udoo X86 boards are planned to ship in November.

The basci Udoo X86 board with Intel Quad Core CPU 2Ghz, 2GB RAM, 8GB eMMC, HDMI and 2x miniDP++ sells for $89 in the Udoo X86 Kickstarter campaign.

The Udoo is a joint effort of SECO USA Inc. and Aidilab, in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in interaction design, embedded electronics, sensor networks and cognitive science, who along the years have worked together in several projects sharing the same vision about the role of technology in human life, and are now spread between Europe and United States.
