give me good ideas of what to do with my raspberry PI zero
Hook it up to a printer and microphone, make it print out interjections every time someone says "linux".
I heard about the Raspberry PI a lot in /g/, but what is it?
What does it do?
What is it for?
Whats the difference in the Raspberry PI zero,one and two?
This ins't bait, I actually have no idea
Make a drone anon its not that pricey!
attach 0.3mpx camera aswell
You can use wifi usb and write your own app on phone/tablet to controll it
All valid project ideas.
In all honesty, it's primarily a small computer for things like robotics and learning programming. I'm not up to date on the Zero and it's capabilities, but my buddy has a RPI2B with Raspian on it and he's using it to learn programming.
They're also huge in the 'maker' community. You can turn your home into a smart home with these things. Or make a smart TV. Or a fucking smart sprinkler. The possibilities are endless.
If you're really interested in the 'maker' side of things, I'd check out the Arduino Uno. You can't install an operating system on it, but you can program for it then flash the programs onto it. The programs are used to control the connected wires and circuits and shit to do cool stuff. I have an Arduino Mega and it's really cool.
Also, check out 'quadcopter fpv' videos on YouTube, especially ones put out by the Tested channel. Cool fucking shit, all made with stuff like this.
Hate to be that 0.0001% but given that this is /g/ are you serious?
Netflix requires DRM to run, which requires a browser with DRM support. Chrome has it, but Chrome has not been released for RPi architecture. Chromium does not have it.
On my OG Model B Pi I run a mumble server and I've just started running an ownCloud server as well. That's about all their good for, light servers. Unless you're looking to do GPIO projects.
You can get Iceweasel, not Firefox. But, yeah.
There used to be some weird workarounds, but I think they've all been patched. I wanted to use my spare RPi to get my Plex server and Netflix on my TV using OSMC, but seems like no Netflix for now.
Thanks for the attempt at helping, but unfortunately it's another "solution" that involves buying a service that basically requires a Windows computer.
I feel like the best chances we have is waiting for Chrome to release an official ARM build, but I'm skeptical.
>There are really cheap ASIC USB miners on eBay
Even if your electricity was free you'd make almost nothing doing this. You'd honestly find more money by looking for loose change on the street.
Huh, don't have Arch on my RPi yet, but I should do that anyways. I'd be surprised if it worked based on how much I've looked into getting Netflix to run on it without coming across any non-paid / Windows requiring methods. Thanks for the tip, though. I'll check it out.
>Arduino Uno rev3
is it really enough to run quadcoopter, wifi, camera, Gyroscope + accelerometer + compass
I would like to build one from scratch, but I wanto programm as much as possible by myself.
You can buy everything you need for an FPV setup for a lightweight FPV setup not much these.
It is in theory possible to stream 640x480 video at 60 FPS(~23MBps) from the PI. But to do this you need a fast USB hub that can talk to a wifi module and the camera.
What you get will almost certainly not be lightweight
The raspberry pi zero being good for robotics is just a meme. It should barely be capable of running OpenCV or doing anything computer vision at all.. The Pi 1's saving grace in this aspect was that it had a GPU and a camera module that could plug directly into it. The pi zero has neither of these. Heck even getting video to it to process is going to be difficult if you want WIFI control.
For robotics the only reason you'd need something with more computational horse power than an arduino is computer vision. But the pi zero can barely even do this.
typically a dedicated video transmitter is used.
good luck doing this with a pi zero. The pi zero, unlike the other raspberry pis, has no GPU, which means it's gonna be shit at decoding video in real time. There is absolutely no way you will be able to decode 1080p video in real time with it.
The raspberry pi zero is just a meme
>get chastity belt/cage depending on gender, some vibrators, a heart rate monitor
>vibrators and heart rate monitor are hooked up to Pi zero
>Pi zero is configured to shut off the vibrators if you get to aroused and are close to orgasm
>vibrators are positioned in chastity belt/cage at sensitive locations
>bonus points if you add a wifi or 3g/4g dongle and set up a website where people can vote on how long you should be kept horny and denied the ability to orgasm or if you should be stimulated to orgasm repeatedly
>have fun having no control over your level of arousal and when/if you orgasm and being completely at the mercy of others
