The cloudX Gerax is an entry-level, open-source microcontroller that can be used in both data science and deep learning tasks.
The Gerax can run on both the Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi 3 and has a USB-based micro-controller and micro-USB OTG interface.
The device is available for $99 and comes with the Gerax board and a 32-bit ARM Cortex A9 processor, 64MB RAM, a microSD card slot and an SDHC memory card slot.
In addition to being the first open-sourced microcontroller for deep learning, the Gerox has been designed to be a cheap, low-power alternative to the popular Raspberry Pi Model B+ and B+ Plus.
Weighing just over 2.8 pounds (1.6 kilograms), the Gerix is compatible with Raspberry Pi, Model B+, Model B, Model A+, Raspberry Pi Zero and other ARM-based boards.

The new cloudX microcontroller comes with a number of advantages over other Raspberry Pi-based models.
For one, it is available in two colors: white and blue.
The blue Gerax also has an IR sensor, which is a major advantage over Raspberry Pi’s only infrared sensor.
The second advantage is that the Gerex can be easily integrated into any existing Raspberry Pi installation.
In this case, it can be plugged into a Raspberry Pi via the GPIO pin, which allows it to act as a standard USB serial port.
In the case of the Raspberry Pis, the microcontroller can also be easily controlled using the Raspberry-specific Raspbian OS.
The next step is to make the Gerx a full-fledged computer.
The cloudx.com website offers instructions on how to build the Geraxe with the open-code and build tools.

CloudX, a new open-data platform, offers a new generation of open- source Raspberry Pi products.
The CloudX platform has also partnered with companies such as Datapoint and Dataflow, as well as open-hubs like GitHub.
The product is available through Amazon’s Mechanical Turk platform, and is also available through Google Play.
For now, CloudX has a very limited range of products, but the GerAx is available now for $199 and is expected to ship in early 2017.
