With all the work you guys have done with Plug apps I am wondering if you are interested in figuring out the Monsoon Multimedia Vulkano and how it works.

It's basically a plug computer on steroids.
Board: CC427(CPU 400 MHz, Memory 400 MHz, UART 100 MHz, SDIO 50 MHz)
CHIPID: CC1200(A1)
FLASH: FL128P 16384KB@10000KHz
DRAM: 512 MB
Linux version 2.6.23.14 (roman@srv-linux) (gcc version 4.0.3 20051201 (C2 Microsystems 100120))

Features

* High applications and media processing performance
o Dual Core SMP 4-way superscalar RISC architecture @ 400 MHz
o Dual hardware threads per core
o 256-bit SIMD Vector Unit
o Codec Acceleration Processors for digital broadcast standards
o Motion estimation, entropy engines
o 2D Graphics Accelerator with DirectFB, OpenVG 1.1 support
o Display Processor
o Security Processor
* Extensive rich media codec support
o H.264, MPEG-2/4, VC-1, FLV, RM
o Decoding of digital broadcast standards up to Full HD
o Decoding of internet content standards up to 720p
o Encoding at D1 resolution and above
* High level of device integration
o DRAM Memory: 64-/32-bit DDR2 @ 400MHz, 128-512 MB
o Parallel NAND Flash
o Ethernet 10/100/1000M MAC with RMII/RGMII interface
o USB2.0 OTG
o PCI-Express: Ethernet/WiFi
o SDIO
o MPEG-2 transport stream
o Digital A/V – HDMI, BT-656/BT-1120, SPDIF, I2S
o Analog Video Out – YPbPr, CVBS

They don't give out the SSH or Telnet login info but using a serial console you could get in and check it out. From there, someone smarter than me, could figure it out and do some very cool stuff with it.
