Yep unmanned aerial vehicle builders will definitely have a use - think little drones with sensors/cameras flying all over the inside of a building.

Looks like the core is a Pentium 400Mhz PC without PCIe. But considering the number of Arm based solutions and their low power and low price alternative not to mention matured development systems, this Quark will not have a chance. There is only disadvantage in x86 unless someone wants to build a cash register with this SDcard DOS system!.
