Of course, Model A is not the only new bit of hardware we're releasing in 2013. JamesH just sent me these pictures of the forthcoming camera board to whet your appetite. This is the final hardware; we've been working on tuning (Gert tells me that picture quality is "pretty good" at the moment, but we're hoping to get it to "bleedin' marvellous" before we release the hardware), and there is some work to do on the drivers, but everything's looking pretty peachy for the moment. I don't have a release date for you yet, but we're probably at least a month away (and possibly more) from being able to sell these at the moment.

The board itself will be 20mm x 25mm x 25mm and the actual sensor is a minuscule 8mm x 8mm x 5mm.
