I think the days of the $50,000 dollar O-scope are over. Tools like this make everything faster and more manageable.

Must have

NO RATINGS
You know how silly fashionistas queue up outside of Apple stores to buy the latest iPhone? Well sadly I would be queuing outside this guy's home for a Red Pitaya. It is simply one of the nicest and most sorely needed tools I've seen in years. And the price is in the sweet zone that will guarantee huge sales. Superb.

Student's dream

This looks like a student's dream - that is both affordable and portable. I can also see electronics enthusiasts utilizing this at home. I like the community aspect that encourages students to stretch themselves and explore new options - an inherent trait required for every budding test engineer. The bazaar provides free applications and the backyard provides source code and tools for application development. Back in the day as a student I had an 20MHz Hitachi o'scope and a serviceable function generator I bought at a swap meet. Those days are gone and this meets a real need in education. I wouldn't mind having one to play with myself, but unfortunately we will have to wait until December - that is if they remain on track according to the schedule on their web page.
