thirteen bucks will get you a 320x240 display, a 640x480 camera, and a dual-core risc-v board with microsd slot running circuit python and that's pretty cool.
my bad, looks like I got the $21 kit, not the $13 kit, but it's this one: https://www.seeedstudio.com/Sipeed-MAix-BiT-for-RISC-V-AI-IoT-1-p-2873.html
it really is wild - nine lines of code turns that kit into a passthrough camera display: https://wiki.sipeed.com/soft/maixpy/en/get_started/get_started_cam_lcd.html
@freakazoid @djsundog @ColinTheMathmo @dibi58 I've been using this of late and it's pretty nice. Flashing firmware is very old school on it though. (CW: Amazon) https://www.amazon.com/Aideepen-ESP32-CAM-Bluetooth-ESP32-CAM-MB-Arduino/dp/B08P2578LV/
@sungo @djsundog @ColinTheMathmo @dibi58 If you just need to see an image or low frame rate video the ESP32 Cam boards are pretty great at $7-$10 a piece. Still enough gpio available for some sensors too. When I was running Home Assistant I had one on the porch pointed at the front door and a temp/humidity sensor wired to it.
@thamesynne indeed - fully supported in platformio too so all the arduino stuff is also on the table so I could probably wedge my retroforth port onto it even
@djsundog I refuse to give risc-v any attention until they have at least a raspi level board available for a resonable price.
@djsundog We've heard this story so many times, from so many places, that I just don't pay attention.
If someone does it great! but I'm not holding my breath.
Now excuse me while I tinker with my uefi kernel for x86-64 and weep.
