Ted Talk Reflection

Ted Talks were great! We went over everything that happened during our 20% time journey. We brought the finished tablet in and everyone was impressed. We go an A+ and went home feeiling great because we finished the tablet at 11:30 the night before. We haven't quit finshed our programming and configuring on the tablet but we will blog about it when we do.

Ted talk Preperation

As of right now we are currently working on our ted talks. A ted talk is a when you stand up on a stage and just talk about something important. We basically talk about what we have learned with our 20% time experience. We have to do good or else it will hurt our grades.

Checkpoint Assingment


No we haven’t accomplished what we set out to do. This is because we did not get the right products from our products needed to complete that part of the project. We have much success.
Our success is figuring out another way to use the PI. We are doing this by making a retroPie gaming system. We have also attempted to make a tablet but Mr. Eckert  ordered the wrong parts.
Failing to make a tablet is one of our failures. This is because Mr. Eckert ordered the wrong items. We have also attempted to download retroPie, but our first attempt failed.
My blog is also something we have done. With over 15 posts we have a lot of information. My link is trevorrevor.blogspot.com
We have made a case for the touch pi but unfortunately we weren’t able to finish the tablet.
The hardest part of our project was formatting the sd card. We used a full list of instructions these can be found at http://blog.petrockblock.com/retropie/
In the next three weeks we need to download retropie successfully and get it running so we can use it as a gaming console. We will do this by finding a sd card that’s class will work in a Pi, then go to the tech lab and download it with the help of Dr. Heisel.

Retropie

The tech lab has helped us a lot on this project. Recently they downloaded retropie and and helped us format the disk. This was something we didn't know how to do so we had to ask the tech lab for help. Hopefully we will have a working arcade system when this project is up.

Tech Lab

The tech lab is the perfect place for us to work on project we were there earlier in the project. We will attempt to download the retropie software for a second time then we will ask for advice because they own two of their own Pi's.
