    Based around the single board KiteBoard, a 3D printer access is a must for your own design.

    Its not cheap but at the same time,but £200 is not unreasonable for a DIY project like this since it does look fun.

    I really can't see this appealing to a relatively small niche market. You need a 3D printer for staters, although I expect there will be aftermarket services designing and printing a case for you, which is really the only bit of diy!

    But then I suppose building one of these is no different from building a computer, except the range of components is much smaller, unless of course others come in to design alternative compatible modules.

    Still, good luck to them.

    Huh. So, the idea I had some 15 years ago someone else finally thinks of.
