Re: PIXEL FOR PC AND MAC

Now RPF needs to make a 64bit Pixel for PC, Mac's and Pi3's. Don't count on that to much. Compared to modern desktops it's bit "crude and old" so even among Linux users Pixels isn't much of an interest. And if you want to make a fully fledged Linux distribution you will need time and money to do th...

Re: Snappy (Ubuntu-Core) On Pi2. Time + Docker

I wonder what's the point in running Docker on ARM board. RPiv2 has it hardware limits like RAM that easily can be consumed by few working docker containers. Not to mention that /var/lib/docker will prefer bigger microSD cards ;)

Re: Interfacing Pi to Sony 1/3" CMOS PCB and night survelian

Only Pi Camera can do it. Or change the single board computer for something else so that it won't be a problem to use one of those simple connectors. To use a CCTV with any computer you will need a frame grabber which in most cases will be a USB dongle (or PCIe/PCI controller). Some machine vision c...

lux isn't an exact measurement of sensitivity. If you change the lens the lux value changes as well. CCTV cameras often have integration or other solution to boot image quality. Machine vision cameras (USB/GigE/Firewire) can do longer exposures or control gain and other settings better, but will cos...

If you really need fast framerate and good support for it then just pick some mini-ITX Intel based mini PC and use one of machine vision cameras that does the job. No need for vendor specific hardware hacking or limitations. Currently for example sensors made by CMOSIS offer very fast framerate (ava...

Plain scanners will "type" text when a barcode is scanned. More advanced have some settings and need to be set into such mode - usually by scanning a special barcode given by vendor.

And SuperTuxKart recently upgraded its engine to OpenGL 3.1+ (yet it's still bit old in terms of look and feel). Not to mention that for example Un...

Wimax is in general dead on Linux. There were some Intel cards that had drivers and that's it. There were few proprietary, but that ended too. Wimax dongle will only handle Wimax network connections. No 3G/WiFi/LTE.

Clownfunding doesn't have to only have reasonable projects. And also ARM single board computers aren't always a solution for an affordable PC. Sometimes x86 is required or highly preferred.

Re: Chrome 43 and Web MIDI

Beta version adds supports for that, but you will have to check on your own what that api offers, as it's a very new feature. Also chrome is not feature equal to chromium, so you may have to use x86 Linux/Windows to actually use Chrome 43 Beta (or wait till new features will show up in chromium).

Re: Web browser recommendations

There is a post showing some of Qt5 demos running on the Pi. In the end - Raspberry Pi isn't for real "demanding" web browsing. I even wouldn't use strongest ARM boards like some Odroids. Those can get the browser experience close to entry level x86... but still no point $/performance/limitations.
