Title: Raspberry Pi Zero
Post by: bigsofty on 2015-Dec-08
Anyone tried GLBasic on one these little beauties? I'm thinking of picking one of these up.

It's actually feasible to ship a computer + game for just the cost of the game on it! Who would have though that day would ever come, lol!  :D

Not sure when I can get mine but I really need to replace some Arduino projects in thin spaces, though they are no as quick as the RPi2.  ;)
When including stocking, shipping and extra wifi and adapter kits, the price is not much less. I look forward to when I'm able to visit the local electronics store and actually pay $5 for it.
Anyhow, so now it's a race to who tests the first GLBasic program on it I suppose.  :D

Take a look to Raspberry PI Zero, only cost 5E, I don't find anyplace to buy all the boards has been sold...  :rant: :rant:

It's practically the same than raspberry PI 1, but without some connectors like ethernet... but is a complete machine, truns 40% faster than RPI one, more info in the link.

It's the new one. Anounced at 5$, for sale at 8.90 at www.kubii.fr
I am curious and interested to see what GLbasic and others can do on this computer.

sf-in-sf and abraxxes thanks for the 2 places to buy because here in Spain I can't find anyplace...  I wait  a bit more else I buy in some of these places...

Matchy is the same than rPY, is a product from the same people not chinnesse product like bananna or orange PI, seems is similar to Rpy One but  a bit more powerfull and the price is really interesting.

Another very interesting thing (is under development, I think) is another miniboard called C.H.I.P. I think is like an x86 computer.. (take  a look in youtube).

Send me one!  :D :D


There's so many clones, like the Roseberry Pi which is very fast.

If you subscribe to MagPi, the official Raspberry Pi magazine, your guaranteed to get this months copy(there doing a reprint just now as it was sold out), which has a Pi Zero free on the front cover.

I prefer wait a bit just now , I see this... only 15$

The good point of all these "miniComputers" is all working with linus or/and android, then  GLBasic can handle without too much problem all this platforms, perhaps doing something specific for the Distro of Debian for this devices....

I think the things are changing a bit, SHiva3D announced compatibility for rPI, and I think Unity will do the same (they don't say nothing yet) but is another really important platform. We will see....

You'd think $5 with zero day access would apply inversely for Moore's Law also?!  :noggin: I want it now when there is hype and discovery!  :D

Yup, I just noticed that the Pi is in front of the same building as that Elliott behemoth was being dragged into over half a century earlier!

I pre-ordered mine and should be here next month. The hype has settled now but simply due to it's size, I keen to try it out. Test note, jessie lite does not have SDL but is fine with the full version on RPi2. I've save my video test for the Zero.  :good:
