A very interesting meetup last night. We had three presentations. First, Rutger gave an overview of RasPi basics for the newbies.
Then Alan told us about BitTorrentSync and how he’s installed it on his Raspberry Pi to make his own personal “Dropbox”-like system.
Finally, Steven showed off something amazing: an old school Mac with a Raspberry Pi for brains. He’s using the Pi’s I2S to drive the Mac’s monochrome video, using PWM to generate sync signals, and DMA to get those two systems in sync. Pretty crazy, but very clever.
Next meeting is Dec. 18. Mark your calendars!
