Raspberry Pi 3 A+
Cost effective option already collected. Will be used with Waveshare Gamehat + RetroPi.
Unfortunately by default doesn't boot up with RetroPi so kind of challenge for sleepless night. Results soon.
In this week's #knowyoursensor we'll be looking at the MQ-2 Gas Sensor by #waveshare.
Comment which sensors you wanna know about in the series 😀
This sensor is extremely useful in detecting gas leakage. The features of the sensor are,
1. Sensitive for LPG, propane, hydrogen
2. Output voltage boosts along with the concentration of the measured gases increases
3. Fast response and recovery
4. Features boost circuit
5. Adjustable sensitivity
6. Signal output indicator

e-paper/e-ink displays are display devices that mimic the appearance of ordinary ink on paper.
Many electronic paper technologies hold static text and images indefinitely without electricity.
One can think of endless applications where they might need to display something for a long time without any electricity.
These displays draw very less current and may be ideal for any project with energy restrictions.
Amazon Kindle E-readers use such displays in order to make reading experience very comfortable as these displays don't strain one's eyes.
The CoreysWave team made a trip out to California to support the new @awalkonwater event location in Cardiff. It’s hard to believe we were surfing fun, small Malibu and Leo Carillo only hours before the Santa Ana’s kicked up and the fires assaulted Malibu and so many other areas in California. Having been gravely affected by Hurricane Sandy, our hearts go out to those who have lost so much in this recent natural disaster.
This Saturday is the last @awalkonwater event of the year. We came out to Cali to help spread surf therapy to North County San Diego—a community that means a great deal to us. But now more importantly, we want to support the AWOW family! The recent tragedies and fires across California have hit the AWOW Family hard. Many of the Volunteers and Athlete families have been evacuated, and some lost EVERYTHING. AWOW has created a space on Facebook where families in need and those wishing to help could come together to support. Please visit the link in our profile and join and post your needs or how you can provide support through a service, donation, or other 🙏
THANK YOU in advance and we will see you Saturday at Seaside Reef in Cardiff! Sign up as a volunteer on the AWOW website now or join us on the beach to cheer our athletes on!
Took a flier on the WaveShare GameHat. Very decent for a $40 unit. A few issues: crappy clicky tactiles, joystick throw is way too much and “case” it comes with is hideous in my opinion. Took care of all those things by replacing tactiles with soft silicone buttons. Created a 3D printed restrictor for the joystick to limit the travel and of course designed a nice case for it. Next up is writing a script that uses hotkeys to control volume, does safe shutdown, and toggles Bluetooth and WiFi like my minty pi combo script. Really loving this little gem. Link to STL’s in my bio 😁 #waveshare#gamehat#raspberrypi3#retropie#retrogaming#cad#3dprinting
