The virt2real microcontroller, or virturilka, is a miniature board for creation of WiFi or internet controllable smart devices.
The board boast unique features, including tiny sizes, easy connections for any peripheral devices, native video processing, and a full operating system on board, opening a vast realm of possibilities for creation of systems with artificial intelligence.
It can be used both by newbies willing to master the basics of programming and cybernetics, and by programming experts.
Using this board, enthusiasts can breathe life into common devices. For example, take a simple radio-controlled car, install a board with a video camera on it, and you have a device, which can be controlled from your PDA or laptop through the internet (for example, connect from work and see how things are at home). Need something a tad more exciting? Install it on a helicopter, add LTE connectivity, and you have a helicopter remotely controlled via the internet. Need a baby monitor to observe your child - just put the device in a suitable casing, and that's it. Want to build a robot that makes its own decisions and recognises your face? Or DVR in your car, so you can connect remotely and see what's up? Easy! See what is going on in your holiday house and switch off the lights you forgotten? As simple as it gets! The range of applications is simply enormous!
Electronics and internet technologies are developing at a astaggering pace. Keep up and use virt2real to realise your wildest dreams!

Currently, we are working on the final version of the board and organising its first edition.
The virt2real device, also known as virturilka, is buit around a Texas Instruments DaVinci family TMS320DM365 processor. It is possible to install a more powerful modificaion, the TMS320DM368 (400Mhz), since they are totally compatible by socket.
