>  I also just got one of these and was wondering the same thing - how to turn it into a Newt-like device.  That'll have to wait for more free time to be available, but the idea of running Einstein on it is worth looking into.

This is factually incorrect. There is a MIPI DSI port on the Raspberry 
Pi, with the intention that ribbon cable can be direct-attached. See 
If you're going to use Einstein on the Pi, make SURE you are using 
Raspbian, since it supports hardfloat.
