Tokyo HackerSpace in conjunction with Safecast.org Japan have a smoking deal for you!
Buy a Chumby HackerBoard for only 5000 yen! That's about $63. Save 27 dollars!! You'll be helping our HackerSpace move into our new place.
A while back, Safecast picked up a case of Chumby HackerBoards, which they intended to use in crowd sourced radiation monitoring across northern Japan. Design constraints changed, and so Safecast was left holding onto the Chumbys.
Fast forward 6 months.
Tokyo HackerSpace needs to move out of the current location. We found a great spot, but unfortunately the cost of moving in Japan is even worse than the cost of living.
Safecast is in our building as well, and thus is forced to move on to a new location.
Clearing out their closets, they found the case of Chumbys and struck upon a golden idea: Fund Raiser!
So, here we have an opportunity to get your hands on a Chumby HackerBoard for LOWEST PRICE ANYWHERE!
Buy one and help us out of a jam. Buy two. You will still be saving a lot of money!
This is a one time deal! When they are gone, they are GONE!
