I just got a Raspberry Pi...
« on: February 22, 2013, 05:56:41 am »
...now what should I do with it???   :evil:

Also: I grabbed an Adafruit cobbler breakout board as well so once I solder it, I'll have access to the GPIO pins.

were you wanting to do a physical computing type project, or just a small form factor electronics box like the xbmc thing?

Ultimately, I wanted to get a better understanding of electronics and programming.  But I don't want to not try other physical computing stuff either.

I have xbmc on 5 computers/consoles/laptops at home already so that's already been done

I'd really like to see if i can do some sort of home automation "Jarvis" kinda thing.  Someone in IRC mentioned that emacs did a voice recognition thing...but that's emacs...and i'm not opposed to learning it...buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut....

yeah. i'd love to do some voice recognition stuff for home automation.  i currently know very little about programming (aced my C class in university 7 years ago, but that's about it)
So, i've got the bug too.  maybe we could compare notes as we go along?
I also wanted to dig into the ROS stuff and the OpenCV.  that seems pretty interesting.
RasPi doesn't have a lead time anymore, does it?

I've been looking at those things for computer vision stuff, but I am doubtful that it has enough power for that. I'll probably go with a low-end MicroATX/x86 processor.

are you going to mess with the OpenCV stuff?  i received a 360 with kinect for christmas, and i want to mess around with it...

SimpleCV for Python, which is really just a Python interface for OpenCV
