Unboxing a Panda(Board) and Making Designs

Wed Mar 2, 2011 09:27:03 -0700

Yay! My PandaBoard arrived on Monday! Woot! Apologies for the late post for it, but you can see the unboxing photos here.

Unfortunately, it turns out I don't have all of the parts I need to even make it boot -- apparently you have to have a serial port and an SD card setup to make it work. While I bought a brand new 16GB SD yesterday, my serial dongle seems to have walked off somewhere. When I get some time (probably tonight or tomorrow) I'll have a review up about the hardware, but for now, the unboxing photos will have to suffice.

I've already put in an order for a MyVU Crystal video headset, as well as an Energizer/XPAL XP18000. For the casing, however, I'll likely end up going to Shapeways after using my handy-dandy calipers to figure out what dimensions I'll need.

Should be a very interesting month... Muhahahah!
