Boston-based Onion Corp. began its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in July and by Aug. 23 had already received more than $773,400 in pledged funding — 4,400% its funding goal o develop Omega2, a new embedded linux computing board.

The Onion Corp. said its new Omega2 computer is compatible with a power-sipping Arduino motherboard but it also has the flexibility of a Raspberry Pi computer.

The $5 computer, expected to ship in December to early-bird buyers, comes two iterations: A base Omega2 model comes with 64MB of RAM and 16MB of flash storage; a $9 “Plus” model has 128MB RAM and 32MB storage, along with a MicroSD slot for additional storage capacity. Both computers use a 580MHz CPU.

The computer can also be expanded to support cellular and Bluebooth, and GPS connections.

A dock needed to connect the computer to power and storage starts at $20. A starter kit that includes the computer, expansion dock, micro-USB cable, keypad and an LED screen and several other parts can be had for $75.
