Another approach is to modify an existing hardware design to tie
in to your own custom stuff. And that is easier when the existing
hardware design is available in a modifiable form, such as:

Perhaps you are thinking, "That would be better if it had a radio
in it!" like the TI CC1111F32 Low Power RF System-on-Chip that
another Open Hardware project uses:

If you are thinking, "Why add a user interface using some system,
why not just build the user interface into the FPGA?", you are not alone.

Kinda like the Reeses' peanut butter cup:
"You got FPGA on my CPU!"
"You got CPU in my FPGA!"

Of course, if all this low-power stuff is getting you down,
watch this high-energy video:
