Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

Quote from hajj_3 on August 30, 2011, 19:08
it would be better if people join together to create a 3d render of a case for the final board and someone or the raspberry pi foundation order say 2000 units that way you could probably have a perfect case for say £2.

100% agree

Re: Power consumption?

<t>Quote from jamesh on August 24, 2011, 21:00<br/> With regard to batteries, we use battery packs from R/C cars (I think) to power development kits using very similar processors to the Raspi (basically bare GPU's). They are also capable of running LCD panels and cameras that are on the boards. Howe...

Re: ARM9 as a complement of ARM11 RPi system

<t>Hi,<br/> <br/> i was wondering if wouldn't be awesome releasing a ARM9 RPi embedded system apart from the ARM11. ARM9 is a very powerful processor that can run Linux or Android perfectly, and i am sure you could achieve a 15$ pcb with a form factor of a usb memory.<br/> <br/> I am sure would be a...

Re: What happen with USB key size(alpha prototype)?

Personally what really suprised me initially about RPi was the form factor. Just a USB size for a entire ARM11 embedded system. Now the size increased double. What happend at the beggining? didnt they give you a fixed price? now they cant continue with the initial design?
