Ubi Always On Voice-Activated Android Servant PC Breaks out on Kickstarter

MojoKid writes "Kickstarter is proving to be the place to go if you have an Android concept in need of funding. Ouya, a $99 Android console that blew by its original goal of raising $950,000 in funds and ended up with nearly $8.6 million instead, and now we're seeing similar excitement for Ubi, a ubiquitous Android PC that is always on and responds to voice commands. Ubi's developers only sought to raise $36,000 to pay the bills, lower costs, and pay for safety certifications, and with 26 days still to go, the project has more than doubled its funding goal with over $81,000 in pledges from 500 backers. From a hardware standpoint, Ubi is an Android PC that plugs into the wall like a fixture and consists of an ARM Cortex A8 processor clocked at 800MHz, 1GB of RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, various sensors (temperature, humidity, air pressure, ambient light) and a few other odds and ends."
