Recently, we compared Raspberry Pi, Allwinner and CuBox Linux hardware boards. Then, some folks from our open source community shared with us their experiences with Raspberry Pi and Makey Makey. There is much enthusiasm over turning ordinary items into new inventions and doing mundane tasks in completely new ways.

If you're like us, then you've heard of other Linux boards out there that offer some interesting ways to do just that. Share your stories with us in the comments below.
