I doubt that fitting third party cases is even a consideration. The RPTs own case got changed because the LEDs on the Pi3B were moved from where the were on previous models. In addition, most of the Pi Zero cases I've seen have no sides, so there wouldn't be an issue anyway.asandford wrote:It is a form factor issue - cases would no longer fit.W. H.

I suspect it's very much is a consideration as this model isn't made by rs or e14. The 2 uk stockists have a huge vested interest in making sure the all their peripherals work, and fit (I suspect they might be co-funding).W. H.

That's the kind of "feature" that makes me rule out cases unless I need them to be (relatively) "child proof". Since none of my Pi Zero projects are going to be used by children, I wouldn't buy such a case. (And, since Pimoroni is one of the few Pi Zero retailers, they'd be in a position to make a new case design very quickly, so I still don't see cases as a reason not to use a full-sized HDMI connector.)asandford wrote: EDIT: The Pimori case is so fully enclosed that you can't remove the SD card without disassembly.
Well last time I spoke to Jamie he said he'd ordered a new fancy CoffeMaker and we all know how he likes his frappellattemochachino - suppose he didn't realise how big it was though . . .liz wrote:

Thanks. I now have to commit suicide. That song and those images will never leave my mind. And if I stay living my mind will be permanently tormented as to why anyone would make such a video.
That's a shame, did not know the full size one was done by hand.W. H. Heydt wrote:So far as I know, that isn't a form factor issue. It's a matter the full-sized HDMI connector needing hand soldering.

It's a wireless zero. I mean no wire at all. No power wire needed. No power supply needed.
It's a superconductivity raspberry pi zero. We just have to run it at a temperature of absolute zero. Btw this is why it's named zero.
As you know with superconductivity electric resistance is null (zero) and a current lauched in a toroid conductor (a zero again) will last forever. This exactly what the new Pi zero is doing. Current is launched at factory in superconductive Pi zero. Pi zero got its power forever.
So we can install it everywhere without the need of any wire. Isn't it fantastic.
We just need to keep it at absolute zero (-273.15°C). Easy.
IIRC 6by9 mentioned a while ago that he had knew what the feature was because he had seen the code changes.blaablaaguy wrote:Huh???
the PI ZERO is produced with just one run of reflow soldering, it does not also use wave soldering, (to keep costs down) that is why all the parts and connectors on a ZERO are surface mount (reflow) soldered. As there are (AFAIK) no reflow compatible full size HDMI connectors then yes, using one would mean the user had to do the soldering, just like the pin-headers,Already ruled out - the form factor is the same.RichardUK wrote:Full size HDMI port?
Go on; make your guess or stake your claim. I don't think anyone will care if you are right or wrong, will be impressed if you are right ( "please show your working out" as they say on all the best exam papers ). If you don't say now, people may not believe you had worked it out before it became public knowledge.
Depends on how many are in the boxes and how many go on sale individually or bundled with other components, whether the one per person / one per order restriction is lifted.Cancelor wrote:Anyway I'm taking bets as to how long before they sell out!
