There's a Dirt Cheap Smartwatch Powering This Adorably Useless Tiny Desktop PC - Gizmodo

Quick Summary:

According to the CNX Software blog, LilyGo does provide some Arduino sample code for the keyboard accessory on GitHub, but it’s extremely lacking, and anyone wanting to tinker with this kit is in for some experimentation to figure out what it can and can’t do.Could it run Doom?

You’d also need to buy the keyboard accessory in addition to the bundle to get those, which kind of defeats the purpose.

It’s really nothing more than a 240 MHz ESP32 dual core microcontroller powering a 1.54-inch LCD touchscreen with a 3-axis accelerometer allowing it to do basic fitness tracking.
