luser attitude readjustment tool; something with which a clueless person is struck
LART is a single-board computer designed by staff of the University of Delft/Netherlands. The creators advertise complete layout by means of CAD files, software and kernel patches for Linux. The software is released under the terms of the GNU General Public License, and the Hardware design is released under the MIT License. TUDelft built some boards, some people built their own LARTs, and a batch was produced and sold in 2002-2003 by Aleph One Ltd and Remote 12, in an early demonstration of the viability of the Open Hardware concept. The standard LART configuration featured 32 MB DRAM and 4 MB Flash ROM. Most interesting is the low-power consumption of less than 1 W while providing ~ 250 MIPS, making it an ideal system for embedded computing. The project also spun off an Open Hardware parallel port JTAG interface board and the Blob bootloader.
