Battery powered, portable – Raspberry Pi cyberdecks with tiny screens & keyboards…
Back in Jan 2021 I built the DSO138 tiny oscilloscope kit. Thought I’d dig it out and compare it with the more recent Raspberry Pi Pico based “scoppy” that uses the Pico’s A2D and an Android phone app to display the data
If you’re struggling to find Raspberry Pi Zero (or Zero 2) boards for light IoT applications then an old Pi 1 512MB from 2012 might be the answer…
A selection of tiny clocks, sync’d a variety of ways – by hand or by (S)NTP/chrony. Featuring Raspberry Pi Pico, ESP32 and micropython.
I took my old (1989 vintage) laptop out for a coffee to send some tweets & emails 🙂
Using USB to power old mobile/handheld computers
Bringing an old analog (1G) Cleartone CTN9000 mobile phone handset back to life with the aid of a software-defined radio (Lime SDR) and osmocom_analog.
An app written in 1996 to simulate making voice calls from a Psion Series 3a.
5250 days later – booting an old pentium computer that’s been in storage for ~14.5 years. This filthy beast used to be the defender of the home network running the Smoothwall GPL firewall.
Poking around in the old Psion SIBO SDK debugger – which looks like it’s based heavily on the MC’s GUI…
