ZX Raspberry Version 2 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

From Being The Continuing Adventures of Mr PJ Evans:

Keep it simple, right? This version takes all the keyboard lines direct to the GPIO (with a switch for handling keyboard modes) and uses a Python script to scan the keyboard for presses which uses the python-uinput module to inject those keypresses into the kernel. Did I think Python would work? Not for a second. It did. Brilliantly. The new ZX Raspberry v2 is significantly more responsive and the Raspberry Pi Zero W has plenty of horsepower to run everything.

I also decided to move to RetroPie as the OS for this project as it is just so good and refined. Setup was a breeze and Fuse works perfectly. I’ve finally got rid of that dratted mouse pointer too. As a bonus, the bluetooth capabilities of the Zero W mean I could pair a PS3 controller and use it as a Kempston joystick. Again, never expected it to work. Again, worked perfectly.

My ZX Raspberry v2 made its debut at the second Milton Keynes Raspberry Jam last weekend.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
