I think I just found the perfect device to be the graphical user interface of my home automation project: the Insignia Infocast.


It came to my attention via one of the people who worked on it: Andrew "Bunnie" Huang, the creator of the Chumby. According to a relatively recent blog post by Bunnie, the device was designed to be very hackerDIY-friendly. Enabling SSH on the device is a snap, and as an added bonus it will even automatically install GCC for you. For $169, this is a great deal.

Check out Bunnie's blog post for more details on the device.
