How does Marvell profit from this?  Is the hope that this widget will spawn many apps that use Marvell hardware or is the plan to sell many of these widgets themselves?  I too struggled to see what is offers compared to the cheapo Pi or any other developers kit freely available from people like Altera or Xilinx.

Crowdfunding is a pretty good way to gather early market response. This is the first time I have seen a big company like Marvell do it this way. Let's see how it work out.
