Is there a Neopixel Simulator?

Hi all, I am playing around with some Neopixels which works quite nicely. I have a Neopixel strip soldered as a small matrix. Once this is installed in another room, I can't easily test new shiny stuff on it, because the main computer is somewhere else. So my question is: Is there a Neopixel simulat...

Re: Asus Tinker board

Thanks a LOT, mikerr for your information and the forum you set up. I always had the impression, that the first batch of boards escaped before the official launch. To see a TinkerBoard site at Asus is a good sign that they are commited to the project. I have my TinkerBoard since a few days now. The ...

Re: Cool new "toy" for Pi owners

My NexDock came today (I'm in Germany) and I have to say I am quite amazed. Delivery was with FedEx which worked very good. Tracking worked from China to my doorstep. I attached a Pi 3 and it booted directly in the GUI. Resolution was working out of the box. I paired keyboard and mouse (you need onl...

Re: falling stars

I was also going to recommend Meteotux Pi. Currently it only works with the v 1.3 Raspi cameras, but it has a very (!) small gap between the single images. When I take pics at night and plane is flying through during 2 pictures, the trails almost perfectly aligns. I used Meteotux extensively during ...

Re: are they shops that sell the PI in London ?

When I was in London last year I found a Pi in the Science Museum shop. It was a little overpriced (I don't recall the price though). The Scienence Museum is always worth a visit and a Pi from that location might be a nice souvenir which supports the museum.

Re: PXE boot after firmware upgrade? Which firmware?

Thanks, rpdom, for the clarification. This makes sense - silicon-wise everything is prepared and "just" the .bin file has to be "written".

PXE boot after firmware upgrade? Which firmware?

Dear forums, in several posts I have read, that PXE boot (or boot directly from USB) with an empty sd card slot will work in the future when the foundation released and tested a "firmware" to make this possible. In multiple other posts it is also discussed, that the Raspi does not have any...

Re: First reading of pressure sensor always 0

Hi Kratos, thanks for sharing. When I run the code a second time, it also works for me. I only described the reboot thing to make clear, that after a "cold" start the first reading is 0. Whereas after a "warm" reboot, the first reading works. I also suspect the sensor needing a w...

First reading of pressure sensor always 0

Dear all, does anybody of you experience the same problem? When I query the pressure and the temperature from the pressure sensor of the Sense Hat, the first reading is always 0 for both values. The code is very simple and directly from the API site: from sense_hat import SenseHat sense = SenseHat()...

Number of onboard temperature sensors

As the caption suggests, I really would like to know, how many temperature sensors exist inside the SoC. I could not find a definite answer in the forum or the internet. You can find scripts, which suggest, that there are 2 sensors inside the SoC (see below). Some people claim, that this script just...

Re: Release date?

Since the Astro Pi is now "live", I wanted to ask, if there are some news about the sensors. I'm especially interested, which air humidity sensor is on the board (since I played around with a number of DHT11 and DHT22 sensors and they are not the most accurate ones). And of course it would...
