    Looks like it is mostly (needs some fiddling to avoid overloading VBAT) compatible with the CM1 dev board, so I can just grab a new module and stick it in. Then figure out something to do with it!

    Kidding aside, this is the perfect platform for a portable emulation system. Most have either been made with an all-up RPi3 or with an RPi Zero, both of which require 'dead bug' wiring onto other boards for the LCD, audio, buttons, etc. With the Compute Module, you can stick everything on one board and just slot the CM in. The original Compute Module was too underpowered for most emulation compared to the current RPi revisions.
