In this post we want to introduce you a great article that describe the latest projects from Black Mesa Labs. These guys wanted to create a new approach to add video support to your projects with Arduino and other low cost microcontrollers. So the idea of Mesa-Video was born.
Mesa-Video is a fully open-source device that will provide real time video resolution of up to 800 x 600 pixels on a HDMI output to any device with a UART serial port.
Following Mesa-Video is Mesa-Bus, their solution to the shield stacking problems of Arduino. Issues appear if you want to get more than one. Therefore, they have come up with this small device which works as USBs for PCs. It´s also cross-platform and open source so you can easily disconnect your Arduino and connect a RaspberryPi without making any changes to the other devices on your design. Simpler and faster approach that puts together SPI and I2C saving a lot of decoding.
A lot more projects are on the pipe, so we recommend you to keep an eye on Black Mesa Labs Projects.
