Pretty cool stuff!  So what you are going to design with it?  :-)

I am looking forward to the day when I can carry a RISC-V based laptop
as an every day use machine.  For me something as a general purpose
portable is something I want.

But also recognize this could revolutionize IoT designs.  Everything
from doorbell cameras to C&C controllers.  It's a new born baby.  No
one really knows what it might grow up to become.
