Re: Lego RCX/NXT robotic programming with Pi.

How is your raspberry pi, python, NXT project coming along? I am teacher in the US and I have NXTs and awaiting a shipment of Raspberry Pi computer to arrive Friday. Tom Hi Tom, In case it's helpful to know, we demonstrated a Raspberry Pi controlled NXT robot to our new students last week and it se...

Re: Lego RCX/NXT robotic programming with Pi.

I've only just noticed this thread, but like jweob can also confirm that a Raspberry Pi with nxt-python is dead easy to set up and get working. Using the pi to interface with the NXT brick potentially makes it much easier to use, even if theoretically it doesn't bring much that the brick can't alrea...

Re: OpenGL capabilties

Hi Redneon, and thanks for the advice. The code I'm porting is all using VBOs rather than immediate mode for this reason, however I've not been pedantic about checking that everything's GLES compatible, so I may yet discover problems. I'm glad to hear that you're finding the process straightforward ...

Re: OpenGL capabilties

Thanks for replying shirro. That explains a lot (performance-wise) and I guess I'll have to do a bit more work to convert to OpenGL ES then. Clearly the 3D and video performance are important qualities of the device, so I'm keen to get to grips with this. To guarantee hardware acceleration I assume ...

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi; David here from Liverpool. I received my Raspberry Pi last week and have been enjoying playing with it since. So far it's really living up to expectations. I work as a university researcher in computing, and am very keen on the idea of ubiquitous computing (especially the prospect of shifting ow...

OpenGL capabilties

I recently received a Raspberry Pi and the first thing I did was recompile an existing C program under Debian that uses OpenGL, freeglut, gtkglext and GLee. I was pretty surprised when it compiled and ran first time. However, I was also a little confused: I know the Raspberry Pi supports OpenGL ES, ...
