Re: New LCD board for the Pi launched on Kickstarter

I've just taken a look and think you can easily add a LCD board into the £12 reward. Yes it has more features than mine but mine was never marketed at being all singing and dancing but just a basic LCD screen add on for hd44780 screens giving the user extended gpio pins so they could then build what...

Re: Neo-Pixel controller boad

So all this board offers you is a convenient way of connecting the components together to the pi. That's enough for me. I think the quiet genius of Paul's little boards is that you don't NEED them. I don't think any of them magically makes possible anything that couldn't be done with a few cheap co...

Re: Small car mods

A lot of this can be programmed by the obd socket and some software like vagcom for vw audi group cars (or similar software for your make of car) just like many of the optional extras the dealers charge you for can actually be enabled by such for nothing as long as they are fitted.

Re: Vehicle speed and license plate monitoring

Could you not use two lasers and two photo resistors that trigger, one set at point a the other set at point b. Knowing the distance between the two points and a simple script to calculate the speed???

Re: MyPiFi LCD board support

Thanks guys.

Down to final few days 72% funded just over £500 left to raise. Anyone pledging £20 or more I will throw in a Mypifi led board which was my first kickstarter for free. So if you up your pledge to over £20 or have already pledged over £20 you will get this anyway.

Many thanks in advance.
