I have known about this project for a while, I was excited at first but was put off by the price tag,
the fact that it is closed source and that it's not available as a kit.
There is another project on the horizon by James M1DST that is based on the Netduino platform which will be open source.
http://m1dst.co.uk/ I have spoke to James via Email and the project is further ahead than what is published on his site.
