Raspberry Pi gets an official touchscreen

Recommended Posts

I never bought an Ulticontroller, because of the small screen size, no webcam support.

But now there is an official Pi touchscreen, that would be a great way to control the UM original.

and small enough to attach it to the UM and to use as a total controller.

I have been using a RaspberryPi B to drive ActoPi as my UMO+ control and a raspberry camera taking timelaps. Im on week 2 with this setup and it has been very nice being able to control my UMO+ from any device around the house. The addition of a touchscreen would be interesting but I wonder how intuitive the touch control is.

I bet this would look great on a all inclusive case with a hanger.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
