I managed to get my hands on an Insignia Infocast 8 used at a bargain price on eBay. It’s an 8″ touchscreen device that is a clone of the Chumby. They’re designed to be hackable, so you can SSH into it as a feature. The apps are written in Flash, and I managed to get my first one running yesterday. Of course I’m using Linux tools only, but found that Haxe and Geany do a great job. I’ll roll the code and the steps I took into the post after the jump.
