What's all the hype with the new $5 rpi?
With the cost of all the accessories you'll need and lack of ports wouldn't the orange pi pc be the smarter choice?
Only $15, has more ram, better processor, more USB ports, ethernet, etc.

>$15
Is this real?
Hows performance? Is it okay for a basic loonux machine for delocuments and movies/youtube?

the point is the price. If you don't need the ram, processor or ports, it's all you need at a fraction of the price.

If you're just gonna use it to power some motors or sensors why spend 3 times more?

Double data rate

Kinda disappointing that you browse /g/ without even knowing that.
>>
>>51548428
yeah there are a bunch of retards on /g/
>>
>>51547608
just normies at it again
>>
>>51547608
Its $5.
>>
>>51548625
Add in other costs too.
Shipping?
Otg?
Powered usb hub?
Ethernet/wifi?

And don't forget to consider the performance difference either.
512mb ram or 1gb
1ghz single core or 1.7ghz quad core
1 usb port or 4

Looked great until this.

Same charger as psp, usb cables are a dollar off eBay, or you can get the power brick for $3.

>unironically using raspberry pi for projects and not as learning devices

This is your problem. If you want to actually make something meaningful, use BeagleBone.
>>
>>51547754
Of course not, pi was never supposed to do any of those things. Go buy a real computer you poor piece of shit.

>tfw the blog post beneath the Pi Zero announcement is of a boy who actually did build a clock with a Pi

>>51547608
three things:
first, this is mostly going to be an overpowered microcontroller (they don't seem to be marketing it that way for some reason, even though that's the ideal niche, what I've read so far seems to be describing it as a somewhat "full" board even though that's retarded) -- if you're building a bunch of things with some CPU grunt behind them, you can get 7 of these for the price of a RasPi2, and three of them for an Orange Pi

second:
the Raspberry Pi series probably has the most well supported ecosystem of software and hardware addons for tiny-board computers

third:
it's fucking $5
yes, you need components to put with it (actually, a lot of them, the fact that you can't plug in a keyboard and mouse without an OTG cable and a hub is kind of completely stupid -- a tiny OTG thing and hub together bare minimum would be $5 total from a glance at DealExtreme, bringing up the cost for the thing to be remotely usable higher), but the bare price will attract people

If I look at it though, there's dick-all reason to consider the Zero, simply because of the ports, or total lack thereof. When you lose basic functionality like being able to plug a keyboard and HDMI cable directly into it and be on your way, you have issues.
No provided GPIO pins on the board is the dumbest shit, but you can just solder some wires straight to the thing, I guess.
A microHDMI adapter is $2 on DX, so you'd spend at least $7 total just to get enough ports to do shit with the thing, ignoring what you need to plug into those ports. They're passing the price of those directly onto you with it, all so they can claim the machine is $5.

a quick glance at the specs kind of makes the Pi 2 look better, and it's cheaper to boot
so unless that BeagleBone CPU is tons better, it's fucking nothing

Wow, you don't know shit about embedded dev and hardware specs.

In any case, BeagleBone is completely open source hardware and software. It's used by tons of professional projects. Raspberry Pi isn't, it's a toy.

how you do this?

image + custom qr?

DO THE GPIO HEADERS WORK
IF I WERE TO HOOKUP THERMAL AND HUMIDITY PROBES WITH A PYTHON RASPBERRY PI LIBRARY
