Mailbag July 2016 overview of PaPirus Zero, Displayotron Hat, Wombat board, PiOT relay board, PiUPS+, Motozero, Zeroview
This time last year I did a “mailbag” video which was well received. So, with the review box filling up, I thought I’d do another. This time I’m covering seven products. I was going to do a G+ poll so you can tell me which one is the most interesting to you, but their surveys are limited to 5 options and I need 7. So I’ve chosen to use a different survey mechanism. I hope it works out. There’s a list of products with links beneath the video and poll. Since this is mostly a video overview, I’ll let the video do the talking…
Here’s the poll. Choose which one you’d like me to review the most. I’ll probably review at least the top two.
Here are links to each of the products shown in the video…
None of the options have reached 51.9% yet…
This referendum is advisory only. It is not legally binding and nobody is stepping down afterwards. ;p
…unless you’ve climbed up onto the table first ;-)
I’d need a step-down transformer for that.
I think a part of me just diode inside.
We’ll see if we can rectify the situation
Bridge too far?
Could have Zener that one coming
That’s my current set of puns all used up.
I declare a draw then. :)
*cough* current *cough*
Think I might go and watch The Wire.
Current draw ;)
Ohm my goodness! Thanks for pulling me up on that one :)
It’s OK it wasn’t your volt. :)
I’m not sure watt you mean?
You didn’t have the power to resist
Guilty as charged :-/
IC you have Ample capacity for puns
Nope, I know when the chips are down :(
This one was hard for me to decide on which one I would like to see in more detail. I really liked the wombat but felt that it was self explanatory on how it worked. Saying that though I am really interested in buying one as I do so much experimenting with Analog and breadboard this seems like a really good solution for me. In the end I voted for the displayotron. I liked the e-ink display for low power applications.
hanks for the review, I bought the PIoT relay board on the back of it, looks so cool and just what I wanted :)
I was very interested to hear more about the piups+.
However, upon inspection of their forums, i find posted to their forums in april 2016 a message that cw2 has declared bankruptcy.
Thanks for letting me know. I had no idea :(
Looks like their forums are drowning in spam too :-/
Most of it rather rude in nature
