usb boot on pi3

I know this is probably everywhere but with the release of pi3 could someone indicate how to set the system upto to run noobs of a usb drive is this even possible or is it just the os that runs on the usb drive? And you still need something on the sd card?

Re: Case for Pi & foundation 7" touch screen

how did you power the pi from the display board?

have you a photo of your case you coudl post, couldnt see a nice way to get the cable from the display baord interface to the pi?

In the end i soldered to wires on to the GPIO pins which i know isnt ideal as it is not protected.

Re: Case for Pi & foundation 7" touch screen

A couple of questions, about a good looking case

1) will hats fit inside the case?
2) does the original camera cable reach when the camera is fitted on the unit?

Re: Any tutorials on how to make a simple Menu app in Python

I have a Motorola lapdock which I want to use as the primary display, I made this happen by changing the default display value in the config.txt file

I then want to develop the kivy app to run on the display if this is possible

Hdmi and display

I am sure this has been answered but can't see it,

I have a Motorola lapdock, can I either a) have same thing showing on both screens or b) extend the desk top?

How do you use this in twin screen mode I have seen a video of this working I think
