In this video I, along with my friend Devang, drop a dead Raspberry Pi from various heights and see how much damage it sustains.

The Results:

  1. 6ft: No damage
  2. 6ft. Strong throw: Bumped Ethernet Port
  3. 2nd Floor (25ft app.): A bit more damage to the Ethernet port and very slightly bent GPIO pins.
  4. Terrace (55ft app): Considerable damage to the Ethernet and USB ports and Two of the GPIO pins bent Considerably.

Conclusion: IT STILL WORKS!!!

We got 2D OpenGL Working !!!

This video demonstrates the current implementation of Eric Anholt’s VC4 GPU Driver on the Raspberry Pi running Android 6.0. This is an experiment and is still in very early stages. Hence only WebGL on Chrome browser works for now. I you have any suggestions or think you can help the cause please refer to the links below:
