We will develop pad cells and drivers able to wire the periphery we have in 
the core actually out into the real world. That's our job.
Then we ship a box or as many the customer orders to the location of the 
customer where the customer can solder the chips onto a PCB, or put it into a 
bowl with milk and eat it for breakfast or whatever they like to do with it.
As soon as we've shipped the product and provided the data sheet it's not our 
business anymore what the customer will do with the product.
We will however offer assistance in developing end-user products with the 
products we provide for a decent fee per hour :-)

Exactly. Customers and investors like blinky blinky tactile demos.
It's easier to attract the attention of average people this way :-)

Well... They're not developing a Libre process... I hope I can make a pretty 
real life conference appearance showcasing the Pearl Rive end of this year at 
the Chaos Communication Congress :-)
