RPi E-ink display

Hi, I'm working on a Raspberry Pi E-ink display using a third gen Kindle display. There's plenty of work that has already been done, this screen has been interfaced with an ESP8266 wifi chip as well as an STM. I was wondering if I could use the code posted for the STM and adapt it for the Pi and it'...

Re: Pi-tendo portable

GPIO should be fine for all of those except for the 3DS slider, I'm not sure I know what you mean by that. However, if it has wires, it should be able to hook up to the GPIO. Just out of curiosity, what exact screen are you using and how does it connect to the Pi?

I'm not even going to go as far saying anything...

Re: Making A 4x4x4 LED Cube

The Arduino is very different from the Pi. You'll need another PC to program it (you can use a Pi) as it doesn't have an OS of it's own. There's definitely a learning curve. Basically you'll use the Arduino IDE to write your programs in a C-like language and then upload to the Arduino. Incidentally...

Re: Portable Pi/Emulation Station

Since you are using your own linier vreg I would backfeed the power on the gpio or usb ports (assuming you have a rev 2). The reason being that you are running off batteries and by using the micro usb you are dropping power across the Pi's 5v reg and polyfuse. The weather baloon projects will often...
