This sounds interesting - we are interested in sustainability projects. Would you be willing to share some pictures and perhaps we can discuss a possible collaboration and blog feature? The OS is designed to boot from an EFI shell so I'm not sure how feasible a HDD boot can be...
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

Many years ago, I started a robotics project, a replica of K9 from Doctor Who. I got the skins for it, sound clips, made a frame and most of the necessary pieces. I bought a custom robotics controller chip that sadly only worked once. The guy who made the chip was not very approachable about the thing not working as intended, so not having any other options, I gave up. This was about 3 or 4 years ago.

Recently, while watching YouTube, I saw a channel called ExplainingComputers and he has a video where he used the LP for a week and was very impressed by it. He's done multiple videos explaining what a great little device you have. A device with wifi, bluetooth, and Windows? And support for robotics with a preloaded controller? eep. That's what I had hoped the other board would have done. And you are mass producing them and the power supply is a standardized one. Wow.

So, with my birthday coming up in about 10 days, I ordered the 4GB/64GB Enhanced unit from DFRobot along with the case, acrylic heatsinks and fan unit. It arrived today, and I've already tested it. Got the Windows up and running, connected to the Net, and to quote Anakin Skywalker: It's working! It's working! I still have to figure out a bunch of things, like how to integrate it with a Sabertooth 2x25 and Syren 10 motor controller and about 4 servos, but I have a feeling this won't be too much of a problem. I can use bluetooth as a controller, but I hope to also figure out how to get it to work with a Spektrum RC controller and BR6000 receiver chip. But once I figure those things out, my K9 replica may be a real thing after all!

I am a DJ and I wanted a small computer to control my lights via chauvet showxpress DMX software and a universal midi board. I will have to design a pretty decent case so that the lattepanda and screen are safe while they are being stored and ready to go once I get to the shows.

I am planning to turn the lp as a module which can we wear like watch. a full scale computer on your arm like a smartwach. ı am working on a model and a suitable screen or a solution for this.
this is stage one.
ı got better ideas, but too early to declare the stage 2.

99 % of the time I am using the 4 gb/64 gb version for amateur radio software - Specifically SDR applications such as SDR Console V3 and SDR Uno. The remaining 1% is used to run Nikon and Canon digital photo processing software. The LP was getting quite warm when running in the area of 55 to 65 % capacity until I installed a small 5v. muffin fan directly over the bottom where the cpu resides. The temp. dropped to 27 c. over the majority of the board and for the record, the ambient temp. in the room is 81 deg F. (approx. 27 c). The setup looks kind of weird as it runs upside down. I can supply some photos for those interested once I figure out how to without uploading them on a photo site and then supplying a link. 73's ars k0wal

Hi, how's everything going! I guess as a arm computer may need a very charming structure.
Where did you get these inspiration?
I like your idea, and hope to see the cool computer in the near future. :P

Genetic Testing is one of the excellent ways by which people can know about their genes and chromosomes. In humans, this test can be used to determine a child’s parentage. It identifies changes in chromosomes, genes or proteins.
