Monument Labs Inc [still fundraising, I believe]

This is an ARM device running some Linux variant, but with some extra software or maybe smartphone Apps.
It’s got WiFi, an SD-card and 2 USB ports to connect drives.

I’m trying to reconcile the cost of the unit (>US$100) with the the Raspberry Pi. Are the specs different enough?
[Does come with a power supply, I’m guessing]

 - does anyone do something this at home/work currently?
   - what platforms would work?

 - One of the indexes they create is ‘faces' (+ date/time, camera).
    - Is there good Opensource to identify faces in photos?
      Does anyone use any of this software?
