Wanna know all about Sher.ly?
We switched from RaspberryPI to BananaPi in the middle of our campaign – a rush decision based on quick research and mostly a gut feeling.
It's nice to see it was a good decision, as more and more operating systems are being ported to the BananaPi platform: Android, Lubuntu (Ubuntu), Arch Linux, Fedora, openSUSE and many others; listed here and here.
We received our connection cables and touch sensors, and we've had great fun playing around with the latter!
It fits inside Sherlybox perfectly:
Now we are working with a tooling company to choose best for quality, thickness and density material for illuminated logo on top of the device – we're aiming for gentle white-light like the cover of an Apple laptop. There will be white and orange light, and you'll see the latter if there's an error such as a network problem or if the disk is full, and so on.
We are pleased to see that the XBMC media centre (now called Kodi) has made it's way to BananaPi, even with hardware acceleration for video decoding:
It looks like the HDMI output we have in Sherlybox will be very useful for your shared media ;)
Indiana takes on priority Sherlybox delivery ;)
