The original Pi's have an ethernet slot built right into them, that's what I was referring to.
>>
>>51542276
Say it draws 0.2A at 5V, that's 1W of power needed.

Say you're a random point near the middle of America (idk), you've got a solar flux of about 125 W/M^2 (Look up solar flux maps for your area). If the solar panel is 15% efficient, you'll need about 6.7W of energy on the panel to get 1W out.

You'll want it to work day or night, so double the power requirements (store it in a cap, or a Li Ion battery?), 13.4W needed on the panel. Therefore, X^2 * 125 = 13.4, A solar panel about 30cm by 30cm.

Seems maybe a little high, but I haven't time to check it atm

>>51546631
Many of them are really good, depends on how much money you have. I suggest getting the Raspberry Pi 2 B, because it's the most powerful from the raspberry family. If you're really low on money, the A+ is decent and the newest Raspberry zero is insanely fucking cheap at 5$. Don't go for the clones models like the banana pi, orange pi or spin offs like odroid, cudie or beagle bone because those require more knowledge and manual work. The raspberry pi is a great choice for a starter because of it's huge and friendly community.

this is infuriating.

where are the single board devices which can run bsd and have wifi, off a sd card slot? beagles and soekrises and kin are too overfeatured (and expensive!) for my application and the rpi is a blob nightmare.

this SoC-du-jour disposable unupgradeable blobby crap hardware is ruinous.

>>51546642
The odroid is $35. That's not expensive.
>>
>>51545954
i agree with your assessment. I think they would have had a real winner if they ditched the fucking micro USB port for power and use a two pin header instead. I would have also liked to have seen solder pads for 4 USB ports, and a gig of ram.

I bet they'll make a 'RPI Zero+' to compensate for the deficiencies. As for a use, I'd like to see someone use this as a base for a quadcopter controller.
>>
>>51546665
Ok buy the zero and Nigger rig the fuck out of it to get a shitty cluster.

Or buy 3 C1s and get a cluster with decent capabilities for $100. Or buy 3 orange pi plus 2s and get a really capable cluster for $150.
>>
>>51546711
They're not $5 if you plan on networking them. Then you end up with shitty plug in networking which is almost as bad as not having networking.
>>
>>51546847
In arm you can get an odroid C1 for $35 and use a USB drive. Its got a real network port so speeds are decent.

For $50 you can get an orange pi plus 2 with a real SATA port and decent network and 2GB DDR3 memory and quad core 1.6ghz cpu.

For $120 you can get a minnowboard that has a couple of x64 cores (not arm) and real network and real Sata.

A regular computer would be better but you'd have to get an expensive avoton board to come near the power usage.

Incidentally, the board being crowdfunded runs the MIPS32 architecture, rather than the more common ARM architecture, and has 256MB of RAM instead of the more common 512MB-1GB of RAM.

Wikipedia states ~160mA, but it's not cited, I'd suspect it'd be around RPi1 specs, so that's about 200mA (1W), if it was 4W, it'd need to draw 800mA, which is nearly double the Pi B's current draw of 500mA.

Provided you have a mini HDMI adapter, a mini USB to USB hub, an USB to ethernet adapter or a USB wifi dongle, a big enough micro SD or an external HDD…

What's the most economic set to make a stand-alone video surveillance system with a rPi Zero? I thought something like this:

rPi Zero / 5$
USB+RJ Hub / ~10$
SG 2TB HDD / ~70$
USB Box for HDD / ~20$
USB Cameras / ~15$ each
USB 10m Cables / ~10$
RJ 10m Cable / ~10$
C14 Power Cable Adapter Hub / ~10$
Small UPS / ~40$

Total: ~215$ (2x USB Cameras + 2x 10m USB Cable and 1x 10m RJ Cable) /

Make it ~250$ with shipping and taxes. Opinions? are there better choices?

>>51555927
but I don't wanna keep my PC on 24/7 just so the rPi can record to HDD, that's why I wanted to make a stand-alone system, HDD included.

Though I already got a good UPS now that I think about it and the C14 adapter Hub I use for TV/printer etc has still many free slots, I might just keep using this. That would make the cost around ~200$ all included instead of 250$ I guess.

Oh this sounds similar to the problem with trying to get an RPi to run some Neopixels.
>Wouldn't it be fun to add bright, beautiful NeoPixels to your Raspberry Pi project? However NeoPixels, and the WS2811/2812 LEDs that make them up, require a data signal with very specific timing to work correctly. Because the Raspberry Pi runs a multi-tasking Linux operating system it doesn't have real-time control over its GPIO pins and can't easily drive NeoPixels. Typically a small microcontroller like a Trinket or Teensy can be used to communicate with the Raspberry Pi and generate the NeoPixel data signal.

I don't think it was designed with connectivity in mind though.
But shouldn't an micro USB OTG cable, and powered USB hub should do the trick?

My concern is about the pins, The RPi0 makes a great pirate radio device but the missing pin that act as an antenna shouldn't this make a problem?

And what is the power usage? 5V volts?
Since I have an old flashlight key chain that have a solar panel.

Just to be that asshole.

STM refers to "ST Microcontroller" where ST is a vendor for said microcontrollers.

ST is not the vendor behind the chip in the Teensy, that would be Freescale.

The term you're thinking of is likely that it's an ARM Cortex-M3 architecture chip.

That's what happens, dude.

I've had humanitarian thoughts before and realized that this very situation would happen. I genuinely feel like they aren't selling the Raspberry Pi for profit. They're basically making them to cost with very little mark-up at all and the fucking vultures are coming out and buying them all up. This is how the market works.

I've thought about building houses for people and making them basically free if I ever became a multi-billionaire, because I believe that housing shouldn't ever be something that people worry about, but I KNOW that if I ever did that then rich people would snatch up dozens upon dozens of them and then resell them for the actual market value. It would be hard to stop that from happening.

We're never going to be able to buy the Pi Zero for $5 until there is no demand for them.
>>
>>51560359

>>51560388

prove me wrong, friend. I bet even in jolly ol' England you'll be hard up to find that issue of MagPi magazine that includes a free Pi Zero. I bet you that scalpers went out and bought up all of the magazines and have begun reselling them.
>>
>>51560417
It wasn't some one-time deal, retard.
They're producing more as we speak.
>>
>>51560481

and, for $5,they are going to keep instantly selling out of supply. Sure, you might be able to snag one if you keep up with when they have inventory like a hawk, but if you're just occasionally going to their site here and there for one you're going to be met with "Sold Out" every time.

>>
>>51561121

I think we're beginning to plateau with graphics fidelity in video games. The next step in video games is to really flex the power of the cpu, making everything in a game have real-time physics.

On today's hardware, if you had a game where your hero had to fight 50+ enemies at once who all wore capes and loose cloth clothing that all sways dynamically because of wind on the battle field and from explosions from your fire spells or whatever, it would chug hard. There's no way your system could handle all that happening at once.

I do suspect we will be playing "AAA" top of the line advanced video games on small Pi Zero-type computers in 40-50 years. I honestly believe graphics cards we have today like the 980 ti being "good enough" for that, so with time of course it'll be trivialized, we're going to say the 980ti is "junk" in as early as 10 years, then we just need processors to evolutionary steps forward to account for the physics calculating needs.

it's a tad faster than the very first Pi, and a decent bit smaller
biggest issue is the awful ports (if they targeted say, $7 instead of a nice round number like $5, they could have put a single ordinary USB port on, maybe even full size HDMI out on that budget, making the device immediately useful out of box without some adapters you need to buy yourself)

like every one of the Pi models, it'd be fine for that purpose, drop OSMC on it or whatever and be on your way, assuming your preferred video formats weren't too out of the ordinary

>>51556695
yeah, I hate this about single board machines
you end up with
>machine: $5-50 depending on what you want
>USB wifi adapter: ~$10 for a shit one, you can go cheaper but enjoy awful connection quality
>keyboard, mouse: $5-10 a piece for a plain, ordinary one
>USB hub: ~$7, could go cheaper
>OTG cables if using Pi Zero: like, $1-4 depending on where you look
>power cable: $5-8, could probably find one cheaper maybe
>HDMI cable: at least $3
>case maybe: however much you feel like spending
>32GB microSD: less than $10

it adds up pretty quickly
bought a Pi 2, came out to around $70 after getting everything+shipping (video cable, wifi, case, keyboard, mouse, usb hub)
probably could have skipped the hub, but it turns out that I kind of do need to plug like 6 things into it sometimes (controllers, USB sticks, etc)

Then it's the wrong platform. One of the tiny esp8266 boards would be better. 32 bit, built in WIFI, an OK arduino compatible firmware you can load on, or better yet, this: https://github.com/nodemcu/nodemcu-firmware

You can program it in lua, and write a node.js site for the UI.

Plus, it's TINY, so you could fit it in something small enough to actually be used.
