I would imagine that the reason price hasn't been announced yet is because they don't know just how much they will ultimately be able to make them for themselves, and the giveaway they are doing is to gauge demand so they can figure out how much they have to charge.

If that's the case, the more ideas that got submitted to them, the better it will be.

Of course, it also might mean that giving them a preview into what kind of demand to expect, they might know for sure just how much they will able to fleece future customers. So hey... what do I know?

I have to admit to some excitement about the recently mentioned MIPS32 board as well, but to be fair, I don't think anybody is actually sure how much of a rival the MIPS32 microcontroller board is liable to be, since its price point has not been announced. If it costs 50 times as much, for instance, then it's not really in going to rival the Pi because it's targeting a different market entirely.

So you won't, in other words.

I mean sure... they'll eventually get to that point, but the number of years of statistics they are going to have to collect on millions of driverless cars driving, collectively travelling billions or even trillions of miles to determine exactly how much safer they are than cars that utilize human drivers is going to be enough that most people alive today probably won't see it happen.
