Setting Up The Screen

The 2nd screen has come and we have setting it up. The screen has lit up but we still don't have the right os for the tablet we haven't really done much since the last post so we still have to download the os this will be a short because of that reason.

RetroPie Concept

Well as you all know from my recent posts we didn't get what we needed for the touch pi. So now we are going to make a 3 inch lcd retropie device. What is that you may ask. It is an os that has multiple emulators allowing you to play retro games. It will hopefully be as easy as downloading it onto an sd. Then you will have to format the disk and you're ready. This will hopefully be completed in the next few weeks. We will Posts when it is.

Idea Showcase

Idea Showcase was great. We were entertained by other groups and parents suggestions. We felt confident in our teachings and overall had a great time. Next we will make the tablet and start programming.

Trading with the malon

Well our stuff came from the grant but, it appears that what don got isn't going to work. We ordered a 7 inch lcd, and 3 inch for a plan b. Both of those haven't worked so, we had to go to plan c. This was using conner (the malon's) monitor he also got from the grant as a plan c. All in all that didn't work so now we are running out of money and items to use. This will be our last day working on this because i'm going leaving.

Grant Was Shipped!

Finally! The grant we have all been waiting for has come. These past few weeks have been waiting. We didn't really have the items to work on our project but now we do. All we could do was just blog, about what you might ask. Nothing! But times have changed and the grant was shipped. We didn't get all that we were looking for, but we still got one thing. An LCD 7 inch hdmi display. I will put a link to the item below.
