Ocean: The Linux web server that fits in your pocket

Want a portable Linux powered web server that will fit in your pocket? Look no further than ocean.

Ocean was designed from the ground up for portability and has a built-in battery that lets you run web and Bluetooth apps in places where direct power is limited.

The device is approximately the size of an iPhone 6 and can easily fit in your pocket.

Because it packs the power of a Linux operating system (the default is Debian, but you can install your own), Ocean can be used for a variety of functions:

  • Building and deploying web applications using frameworks such as Node.js or Ruby-on-Rails
  • Build a custom router
  • IoT hub
  • Prototyping of iBeacon or Eddystone beacons

The device can also double as a portable battery for iPhones and Android devices, and has enough power to charge an iPhone 6 1.3 times.

Ocean has the following technical characteristics:

  • 1GHz dual-core Cortex-A7 ARM processor
  • 1 GB DDR3 480 MHz RAM
  • Internal 16 GB micro-SD card for storage
  • 4 GB internal flash chip
  • One USB 2.0 / 3.0 port
  • 802.11 b / g / n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0+
  • Support Qi wireless charging
  • 4,200mAh internal battery for up to 2 days of continuous processor use
  • Comes with Debian 8.1 (Jessie) pre-installed and Linux Kernel 3.4.105+

This pack costs $ 149 and ships in February. Higher capacity versions are expected to ship later in the year.
