Pie Ala mode? Pi on the Road!

Time flies!  Things have been busy for me lately.

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.
