Update: it worked, they are sending me a sample. Thanks for all the support
I’ve been building a robot for the last 6-months or so using some spare parts from my four-motor Maslow I was working on (and gave up on… long story) and recently ran into an issue with the atomic pi I was using as a processor… basically it doesn’t have enough USB bandwidth to handle a Kinect and anything else at the same time. It has one standard USB port and the other USB port is on some crazy header with 2.00 mm pin spacing and they don’t make an adapter for it…
Anyway, Radxa is releasing (finally) their Rock Pi X in 3-4 weeks that has 4 GB of RAM, 3-USB2.0 ports and 1-USB3.0 ports… Perfect replacement for the atomic pi. They are offering samples for use on interesting projects that people like. I’m dead in the water on the robot at the moment until I overcome the USB issue so I described the project and asked for a sample, but crickets.
I decided to take a direct approach (really, what do I have to lose) and created a thread on their forum where people can express their support for the idea of getting a sample. If you are inclined, please head over to their forum, like my post, and vote in the poll at the bottom of my thread. I’d greatly appreciate it.
