The $5K wood-covered Novena Heirloom open-source laptop ships to backers
The creators of the $5,000 Novena Heirloom, a laptop built with a completely open and modifiable design, shipped the last premium models to backers last week.
he Heirloom is a special version of the Novena, a “labor of love” project created by hacker Andrew “Bunnie” Huang, along with Sean Cross and designer Kurt Mottweiler.
Huang is the hacker who broke into the original Xbox. He has a love for open-source projects, and thought of the Novena as a hacker’s dream laptop. The trio raised $783,329 for the Novena project through hardware crowdfunding site Crowd Supply. Mottweiler worked on the Heirloom with Huang.
There were only 12 Heirlooms made, priced at $5,000 each. They use the same components as the original Novena, including the same board, ROMulater, battery, MyriadRF SSD board, and Freescale iMX6 quad-core Cortex A9 CPU with Neon floating-point unit, running at 1.2 gigahertz. They have ports such as a mini PCI-express slot, HDMI, SD card reader, and two USB 2.0 ports. They also have a resistive touchscreen controller, digital microphone, 3-axis accelerometer, and other components listed here.
