Re: Portland, Oregon

I concur. Sadly missed the first one. Any plans for another/how did the last one go?

Driving Multiple Steppers with the GPIO?

So I've been doing some research and looking at connecting stepper motors to the RPi via the GPIO. There's a good write-up here: http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2012/07/stepper-motor-control-in-python/ and http://www.scraptopower.co.uk/Raspberry-Pi/how-to-connect-stepper-motors-a-raspberry-pi Howev...

Re: Connecting stepper motor to Raspberry pi

Another method is to buy a stepper/driver that is known to be compatible with the Pi. This one for example: http://www.amazon.com/28BYJ-48-28BYJ48-4-Phase-Arduino-Stepper/dp/B0089JV2OM/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t There are lots of tutorials for this stepper/driver (28BJY-48 with the ULN2003 control board, I b...

Re: PI + laptop LCD

Looks good so far! I'm considering doing something similar, so I'll be watching this thread.

Gresham! While I don't actually have a pie (besides the apple one I just baked :D ) I would love to attend!

Re: If you could order now..

With my current budget, I'd have to go for 2 Model A's. One for an HTPC, and I'd figure out something for the other. :)

Re: Sub $150 7

That's an awesome screen, and the touch panel should work, but the display is ~$70 so not the best economically. Then again, $100 might be to much for both...

Re: Easy, Affordable Screen Solutions

Was the dvd player screen you are using an easy installation, or did you have to interface with some weird cable and write a driver for it? Err, actually I'm not using it. It burned out on me today. It WAS working fine with no problems and no, I didn't have to write a driver. Just to be clear, I do...

Re: Easy, Affordable Screen Solutions

That 9 in. screen is pretty low res, so you might want to consider something else. There's an 8 in. LCD + Touch Panel for $99 on Ebay, if that's any help: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VGA-AV-tft-Driver-board-8inch-tft-AT080TN52-touch-panel-touch-screen-controller-/170834570007?_trksid=p4340.m444&_trkparm...

Re: Sub $150 7

Not sure if this helps, but here is an 8 in. LCD display/Touch Panel combo pack. It does 800 x 600 resolution, which is comparable to a lo-res computer monitor. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VGA-AV-tft-Driver-board-8inch-tft-AT080TN52-touch-panel-touch-screen-controller-/170834570007?_trksid=p4340.m444&_t...
