Re: New guide: StereoPi used as USB device

The goal was to add a webcam to my new desktop computer. This was accomplished in two ways. First using the Stereopi as stock SLP out of the box and Manycam to redirect the browsers output to both Skype and a Flash based system used in browsers. Secondly using the Stereopi via a usb connection and a...

Re: New guide: StereoPi used as USB device

I removed the pi-=hole from the system in case that was the issue. I do not think it was. The rpi is fresh and it SSH's to other computers and can be accessed similarily. The up-to-date windows 10 machine has a ping to the assigned 192.168.3.2 address of <1ms or 0 avg. 5 pings with min .074 ms, max ...

Re: New guide: StereoPi used as USB device

I am using the light blue USB ports on both the windows box and the rpi. I noticed a cabling issue earlier when the gadget would not appear at all in the network, but i had tried to use a cable with a built in power switch instead of my trusty goto cables. My trusty ones have a ecomoto green tag and...

Re: New guide: StereoPi used as USB device

Started with a fresh flash of SLP, unlocked the file system and changed the files as per the article. Set windows to assign 192.168.3.2 to the gadget with netmask 255.255.255.0. as you suggested and the Ping was successful, however with SSH 192.168.3.1 times out and the gadget at 192.168.3.2 refuses...

Re: New guide: StereoPi used as USB device

Help! 169.254.x.x is the only address for the gadget i can get. Used a new install of SLP, with an unlocked the file system, changed the 4 files and repeated using both an updated windows machine and an updated rpi4 with dnsmasq installed as hosts, trying many times yet I am unable to repeat your re...

Re: Blinky Box

Realizator, after looking at your other site I see that your vision goes beyond, far beyond the stereopi and encompasses many of the concepts I too am pursuing. Your successful creation of product from idea is very impressive. I look forward to the updates you have planned for the stereopi and the c...

How Blinky's sidekick Perky got his nickname.

Thumb stick control running 6 volts instead of 5 without any smoothing or easing.

Re: Blinky Box

Yes, Blinky is growing. The project currently has completed an installation of a recently modified Meccbrain.h to replace the servo header in the arduino software. This, along with an easily made small wiring harness, allows the Waveshare Alphabot's application of Webiopi software to control the Mec...

Re: Blinky Box

So with the snow flying again, here is Blinky at a young age.

Not everything works yet but the neck, wheels and vision do remotely. :)

That is a Waveshare Alphabot in his chest. A handy way to hold the other Raspbery Pi and Uno.

Re: Cameras not affixed to PCB, connector damaged

Regarding the protective film, I may in the future cut the mount in half and then attach the halves on something to mimic focusing eye movements. It is easier to protect the finish with the film.

Blinky.

Re: Cameras not affixed to PCB, connector damaged

I am not from StereoPi, but I noticed a white removable piece of tape that would allow you to firmly fix the camera in place once removed. It was at the back of the lens. Instead of firmly planting them, and to allow for future alignment adjustments I used some handy tack to seat the lenses. A parti...

Re: Blinky Box

Yes, two eventually for up and down as well, the mechanics are easy for me, the programming will be above my pay grade though. I recall building a Waveshare Alphabot with an optional arduino responsible for the movement. They had open source software for both with and without the arduino that would ...

Re: Video Streams Not Working

Check that the camera cables are in correctly. Also try to hook a monitor up with the hdmi and you should see at least one camera until you set 3d in the admin area.

Hope that helps.
