Re: "Octo"Pi

My new Pi's have arrived!  https://photos.app.goo.gl/yr7KsAvKuYngiJfA6 
Pi Zero, Pi 3 A+, Pi 4 B.  

The Zero has only the single zif connector which is for the camera, while the 3 A+ and 4 B 
have both camera and lcd.  

So I am going to try the A+ with lcd and camera plus small hdmi display and usb camera.  
Powered off a cellphone power bank.  I would like it to last through a Halloween party maybe 3 to 4 hours.  

Hope to see you there

Berkeley Raspberry pi meetup this Sunday the 6th.  At Blue Door Cafe from 11 til 2pm.  

Personally I have a couple projects in mind:  
First is a battery powered Pi with two displays and two cameras.  I have run a Pi Zero W off one of those cellphone charging packs and got 10 -12 hours on it.  So I was thinking the Zero non W may be able to go 4 hours with two screens.  But the Zero doesn't have the lcd connector.  Realized that after I already ordered one.  So I ordered a Pi 3 A+ to try out.  Both should arrive by Sunday.  
Second would be to continue work using a Pi 4 to operate a servo to track a persons face.  

As always, be courteous to staff and other patrons.
