You DIYers are gonna love this. Vidtonic's promising a "homebrew" hardware/software development kit to help bring apps to the TV screen. Yeah, it's Android-based IPTV. Like Google TV, we assume, but a little more fringe. With the kit you get a TV housing, cables, a 1080p LCD panel, power supply and ARM/DSP motherboard, along with the software tools to get your app up and running.

How usable will this be? And will it be more than a cool hobbyist device? We'll just have to check it out and see for ourselves, won't we? Check out the full presser after the break.
