Once the Sharp lcd board was launched, I had a great time at Open Hardware Summit and Makerfaire. A bunch of folks got to see the LCD and library.
The last couple of weeks have been occupied with my “day job”. In fact, today finds me posting from a hotel room.
Knowing I’m going to be cooped up in a hotel room with nothing to do for a few nights always makes for a hard time packing. Which projects to bring?
I was driving for this trip, so I didn’t have to worry about TSA questions about dev boards and jumper wires in my luggage.
So what have I been up to?
Some work on the LCD documentation and library. There are a ton of undocumented features in there that aren’t covered in the demos - like support for multiple variable spaced fonts. Tonight I finally began toying with the Raspberry pi i got a few weeks ago.
I have it set up with a motorola Atrix webtop “laptop” computer. I was finally able to sit down and figure out the wireless settings tonight. I have never been so happy to see a hotel wifi login page.
The Raspberry Pi is an exciting platform – especially with the upcoming camera board. I’m excited at the prospect of getting some machine vision software running. Hopefully we’ll see some vision enabled robots in the next few months.
