Re: OpenMV M7?

If you don't mind my asking, and I really don't mean to come across contrarian, but if OpenMV is essentially "a PyBoard with a faster proc, more RAM, oh and also a camera and a bunch of compiled opencv image processing routines" , then (and I reiterate, I don't mean any disrespect to PyBoard) what i...

Re: OpenMV M7?

Agreed. I had mistakenly assumed the PyBoard was a more powerful "central processor" while the OpenMV boards were sort of "shield-like peripheral camera controllers". OpenMV is a little more complicated than that since it actually has its own suite of shields and includes lots of on-board open-cv im...

Re: OpenMV M7?

I was just asking if they two devices work well together. Maybe one would want to use the PyBoards additional pins, or maybe it's faster or has more RAM (I don't know if either of those speculations is true).

Thanks.

Re: LCD skin availability?

I know. I mentioned it in my previous comment. I'm just curious about the prospects of interfacing the two devices together.

Thanks.

OpenMV M7?

I realize OpenMV has initiated the next gen. H7 camera, but that won't be available for a while, especially for those of us who missed the KickStarter campaign. The M7 has been available for quite a while now and I'm curious if anyone has interfaced it with the PyBoard at all. Surely I'm not the fir...

Re: LCD skin availability?

Thank you. Now if only I could get a camera going. I missed the recent Kickstarter campaign for the H7 and I'm not tempted to buy an M7 if the H7 is about to come out, so I'm left kind of stuck on camera options. I'm of half a mind to try to access one of the numerously available I2C Arduino cameras...

Re: LCD skin availability?

Thank you. Do you know whether the one supported LCD skin is slated for any future reproduction? Like I said, I can't find it anywhere at the moment.

LCD skin availability?

The LCD skin is not in stock anywhere. Is it a discontinued product? Is the entire PyBoard essentially discontinued in anticipation of the next gen PyBoard that is supposed to come out in the (near?) future? Has anyone successfully interfaced some other LCD (with or without a touch interface) with t...

Re: MicroPython Newsletter Issue 1

I'm just posting in order to "subscribe" to notifications of any updates to this thread. I'd like very much to know the timeline and pricing of the next generation of PyBoard.

Re: What comes after v1.1, and when?

That looks incredible. Thanks.

I wonder what it's going to cost. It really looks pretty remarkable, but that fact in itself is intimidating.
