    Is it possible that they will use this stick connected to your PC to use power of YOUR PC for their calculations. So this becomes something like "Trojan Horse"?
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    I wonder if a few of these daisy chained to a Moose might be able to give it some commonsense? Cyber-Moose time!

    NCS Getting started - https://developer.movidius.com/getting-started

    1. You will need the following - An x86_64 computer running Ubuntu 16.04

    So not for Windows folks unless there's an Ubuntu VM handy.
