I will answer my own question. I ended up buying a SanDisk extreme plus micro SDHC 16 GB (20€). OSMC runs more than smoothly on it. 16 GB seems to be a good size. OSMC takes less than 300 MB but the metadata, thumbnails, artworks and add-ons are also stored on the SD card. I'm able to play my heaviest movies (20 GB) through NFS without issue. Any card ...

Buy a tablet. In fact the amazon fire looks like a great option here. In fact, its cheaper than a 7 inch tablet with similar specs from my favoured crapgadget vendor Its a cheap, bog standard tablet (running fireos) , has a 7 inch ips screen and considering a raspi is 35 usd and this is 50 usd... its probably a pretty sensible option for what you have in ...

If you just want a display, adafruit has a very nice 7" display for about 70usd. DX has screens that are considerably cheaper, slightly dubious build quality compared to what the adafruit screens seem to have, and somewhat variable shipping time (tho its currently a MVP product and they promise fast shipping . The controller board's the same on both I ...

I'm looking for something similar to this myself; currently I'm using a CHIP from NextThingCo; you'd have to write the software yourself for what you want, but it runs standard linux. Wi-Fi connection CHIP can connect to two wifi networks (or provide one). There's no ethernet, however. Audio output CHIP has a TRRS jack Push button to config wireless ...

Your best bet is one of the Rasbperry PI 2 or 3 is $35 The PI 3 does actually have built-in wifi, but no WPS button or activity leds. They both have a RJ45 for hard wiring with activity leds. You need a 5V adapter,SD card, USB wifi adapter and shipping and handling will bring the cost up a bit more. Give up on the WPS and wifi activity leds and save $10-$...

Unless your LAMP stack will see high load, the Raspberry Pi 3 is a perfect choice for your purposes. It can even be overclocked decently if you add a few small heatsinks to its chip surfaces. I have successfully run a low-use LAMP stack off my Raspberry Pi A+, which is a single core 700mhz ARM CPU (I had it OC'd to 900mhz but whatever) with 256mb system ...

Most microcontroller boards less than $20 do not have Bluetooth/Wifi/Eth, or LCD ports. The Raspberry Pi is your best bet, but if you need something a bit cheaper with the same capabilities, I'd look at the PINE A64, Currently on pre-order. $15 gets you: -64bit Quad Core ARM A53 1.2GHz CPU -512MB DDR3 SDRAM -MicroSD Slot Supports up to 256GB -10/100 Mb ...

What a coincidence, I've also got a RPi Zero. Check this out on Amazon.com, "Edimax EW-7811Un 150Mbps 11n Wi-Fi USB Adapter" It's only $8.99. It says it's compatible with RPi and RPi 2. I personally have the wifi dongle that came with the adafruit RPi Zero Starter Pack (which is about $11 w/o shipping). Hope this is helpful :D

Short Answer: Yes there are power banks that can do that. However, the power bank must support the feature and your phone.A famous brand of power banks can support this feature is Anker one type can be found on Amazon. There are cheaper ones. Output: However, this is strongly advised! First, being that you power bank will exponentially increase in heat ...

There's quite a few similar ones but I used this as a secondary screen for a few years. It got somewhat roughly handled, but if you plan ahead and mount it correctly (and not try to work on it while its plugged in as I did) its a good monitor, which is remarkably good looking. No audio as far as I can tell. DX tends to ship anywhere and shipping's part of ...

The Globalsat ND100 seems to be what you're looking for. It's a bit bulky, but it seems to do everything you need it to do. It's only $35USD Has a thumb-drive-like form factor (Besides it being a bit bulkier than a thumb-drive) It states to have "Very low power consumption" According to this article, any GPS receiver that advertises NMEA-0183 compliance ...

2,000 isn't much. You can buy 1 very expensive desktop with that, or 5 reasonably priced ones. You want 30. Assuming you want all workstations to be identical, this leaves you with 66 dollars and change per workstation. If an RPi costs 55 at your location, this would work. To turn an RPi into a workstation, you'll need a mouse, keyboard, micro SD-card and ...

If you are looking for the next 5 years of life, why not look at a (refurbished) Dell Small Form Factor PC? A core i3 or i5 (I recommend the latter) will be more than enough for 5+ years of use, plus you get the backing of a big name. Parts are simple and easy to come by and because this is an Optiplex product (meaning it's for business, not home), it ...

So I won't be able to answer your questions completely, but it looks like the requested features you're looking for has been done in the past. Here is what someone else has been able to do. Vending Pi Board A) Gather data from DEX Input / Output Port (Vending Machine Side). B) Collect data from Humidity & Temperature Sensors inside Vending ...

Well I looked around the web, and I found these options: Pine64 The Rock64 or the RockPro64 are good options. As for today, these are the only ones with USB 3.0 from Pine64. Odroid You could also choose to buy a Odroid. I recommend checking the wikipedia page seeing what model suits the best your needs. You can find without any problem a case on amazon.

This post explains how the poster created a four-lane board he's selling to double throughput, and also provided a lot of technical background. This seller of Pi cameras may also have useful gear.

I would recommend a membrane 3x4 keypad from adafruit, I Just bought one and the keys are really easy to press and the pinout is easy to understand.

I would advise you against your own hardware for this task. The goal of Raspberry Pi is to be a small-size substitute for a PC, not a large-size substitute for a professional recorder. Based on your comments, you have some quantity of XLR microphones—you weren't clear if it's two stereo microphones or four mono microphones—and you want to mix this sound and ...

AMG8833 is a popular thermal camera which has an accuracy of 2.5 °C (4.5 °F). The benefit is that it's commonly used, and has a pretty decent support. The drawback is its tiny resolution, 8×8 pixels only. It costs around $40. MLX90640 is another, although less popular, choice, with its increased resolution of 32×24 pixels and an accuracy of 1.5 °C. You can ...

You can try it out by buying a Pi Zero W to test the requirements you need since they are very cheap. Then after you ascertained your requirements go for what you need. Stick with the Zero or get a more powerful one. I believe the Raspberry Pi 3 should be able to do what you want but I would recommend that you get a Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB at least. That ...

The top three search results for “windows hello webcam requirements” claim that you need a special infrared, 3D camera: If Windows Hello doesn’t work, chances are your hardware isn’t compatible. That means your system lacks iris scanning, fingerprint scanning, or a near-infrared 3D camera. Source A regular webcam will not work with Windows Hello. Windows ...

I used "six axis joystick with rotation" as the search terms and came up with an open-source resource from the UNMND web site. It appeals to me because I like to build stuff and this one is very much a home-build type of project. I have a 3dconnexion SpacePilot Pro which has the requirements you describe, but it is fairly expensive and may not necessarily ...

The PiJuice HAT includes a battery solution for the Pi, and has a built-in RTC. There's additional features/add-ons available as well.

Ended up going with setup 1 and using this RFID-reader from Sparkfun. https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14066 I interface the reader by use of the Mercury library in a Python program. Super reliable reader I can highly recommend.

Single board PC with HDMI out is quite common but HDMI input is quite exotic even for standard PCs. It will probably have to add on card. There are many TV capture cards and the low end is analog video. Higher end are also with HDMI in, but are much bigger and power demanding. And this will diminish the single board advantages. Are you looking for webcam ...

You should check out the Raspberry Pi HDMI Input Board. This is not really a recommendation, since I haven't used it, and there may well be better options. However, using an add-on card may well be the only solution whatever single-board computer you look at.

I recently (2 month ago) bought a HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 G1610T.
