The OpenBrick Community introduced a new project, named Umigumi, that aims to simplify the installation and the distribution of OS installers by using Flash memory cards. Based on user input, Umigumi creates compact Flash cards with bootable code. The card can then be inserted into a different system to reconfigure that system as a router, firewall, VPN, OGG player, print server, thin client and so on. Originally designed to work with OpenBrick, Umigumi can support any embedded hardware platform, including PowerPC, StrongARM/XScale, Mips/Mipsel, SuperH, SPARC and 68K, running open-source operating systems.
