Raspberry Pi powered Multibox PC project on Kickstarter

Hi, I have been working on a project which launched on kickstarter yesterday. It is called the Multibox and uses all the Raspberry Pi models with the exception of the compute module. It is based around a 14" LED LCD. front.jpg modelb.jpg play.jpg The project page is https://www.kickstarter.com/proje...

HDMI Pins

Hello,

Can anyone tell me how many pins, and which ones, the RPi uses on the HDMI socket.

Re: Some advice please.

You are quite right, there are some big ships out there. It wont be moving fast enough to cause damage itself, maybe 2 knotts at the most. My expectations are that it will be pushed out the way by the bow wave, on larger ship anyway Hopefully it shouldn't come into contact with anything.

Re: Some advice please.

There will only be the Raspberry Pi onboard as the controller, there will probably be a solar charge regulator and power distribution manager to handle the solar panel & the batteries. it will be seperate to the Raspi. Thats about it. There will be no people on the craft, it will be not much larger ...

Re: Some advice please.

Thanks pbreneman for the info but I'd like to keep the programming in Python if I can, it seems to follow the Raspi's guidlines. 2w is fine, the ocean going Fish Pi will have 130w, and the smaller Proof-Of-Concept Vehicle (POCV), which I'm building now, will be run from a 5000mah 7.2v battery.
