Pengpod with my bukobot
« on: April 14, 2013, 04:35:46 PM »
In my quest for a self-contained bukobot, I finally found what I think is an ideal setup.

I've been using my RPi for the past few months, and it works fine, but it meant I didn't have an interface at the bukobot, and was controlling everything from my laptop.

I got a VikiLCD with the idea of interfacing it to my printer, but before I got to it, I saw this:

So I picked up a PengPod700, installed linux, reflashed my printer to 115200, switched over to using the PS to power the X3, and now have a fully self-contained bukobot with wireless connectivity, and a nice graphical interface.

I'm quite satisfied with this solution, as it is compact, has nice visual status, and provides all of control I need.

Having played with it a little, I don't think the PengPod is a great Linux tablet or even a great android tablet, but it seems to fit this type of usage model very well.

Nicely Done! Congradulations. You have any pictures of the end product? :)
