This is my design for a 3D printed enclosure, I have used OpenSCAD for this as it's my preferred design tool and just for fun I used the GIZMO2 as my development workstation. To start with I set-up my GIZMO2 with a 120GB SSD and installed Lubuntu, this is Ubuntu but with a lightweight GUI so requires less memory. I then installed OpenSCAD with a simple
sudo apt-get install openscad
If anyone would like the full details for installing Lub ...

Introduction Using a Live USB Stick, I failed to install Ubuntu (or Xubuntu, tried both) to the microSD card of the GIZMO 2. The installation would finish successfully, but afterwards it was impossible to boot fro ...

So I searched for a way to have some external buttons which I could eventually mount to the enclosure. Buttons The process to find where I could connect my buttons to was rather simple actually. Using my multimeter, I searched for connections between the buttons a ...

I'm no professional designer, so it's more a functional enclosure rather than a fancy looking one I took various measurements of the board, especially around the ports and started porting this to Sket ...
If you haven't already read this excellent post Gizmo 2 – The New Batch by shabaz please do. Here is a very brief post of my initial experiences and observations so far.. I was lucky enough to win a prototype board in a recent element14 competition and as soon as I received the package I connected everything up to my Sony TV HDMI input and ran through all the demos as described in the above blog. Switching to my Acer LCD monitor which is full HD re ...
The new Gizmo II from Gizmosphere is absolutely oozing with power: dual-core 64-bit AMD SoC Jaguar II processor, with built-in GPU 1GB of DDR3L RAM; on-board USB3.0 ports a PCI-Express card slot HDMI out; gigabit Ethernet And, as a bonus, a real-time clock that is battery-backed, something sorely lacking on many other single-board computers out there. You may think from the specs that it's a modern computer – it's hard to believe that Gizmosphere have managed to pack so ...
