Latte Panda for Home Automation Control Panel?

In a current exhibition project, we need a small touch screen to modify lighting settings easily.

Now I like the idea of having a fancy little 7" touch screen powered by a Panda. The vvvv app running on the panda will have to sport some fancy animations, but nothing too crazy.

Do you guys have any experience, what kind of panda is necessary for vvvv with half-decent framerates? Please share. Alternative thoughts are welcome too.

from my experience the original LattePanda likes to reduce the clock due to its missing heatsink. you’ll find plenty of models to equip it with a fan though, which apparently helps.

i’ve got an original LP and a LP delta lying around here. if you want i could give your patch a test run.

thanks, will approach you as soon as i have something to benchmark :face_with_monocle:

May also wanto to have a look at https://www.udoo.org/udoo-x86/ or https://www.udoo.org/udoo-bolt/

I have used the original standard panda for some low poly 3d rendering with particle effects and some mild post processing - 4 viewpoints at once (pepper’s ghost hologram). I’m sure it can handle a simple ui, the GPU on the atom is surprisingly not absolute garbage. I have installed a heat sink and a little fan to push air through the box it was installed in, it did indeed help keep the performance stable and good.
