I don't believe the ouya 'Prototype' board was ouya's or Boxer8's original hardware.



So, It's obviously a manufactured board (with added random wires, a speaker or mic and IC's).

Ie, printed board with a SoC.. IC's etc


Which suggest Boxer8/ouya had access/money to R&D and make it.

But I can't believe a start up would have done both.. just for a 'Prototype'


It looks like a tablet board to me.


It mentions the prototype as software and not hardware: http://ouya.wiki/OUYA_Inc


On July 19, Boxer8 confirmed having a working prototype with in-progress software and user interface.[2] Robert Bowling, former Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward, announced in a blog post and through an update on the Ouya Kickstarter page that his newly formed studio Robotoki would be the first developer to commit to creating a game exclusively for the Ouya.[3]



Also, why would a dev board include so many USB ports and other non esencial IO?


I'm a software guy and don't know much about hardware, so I'm just asking, what was the Ouya 'Prototype' board ??
