Would this help? It seems to be some kind of mysterious 'i2c-to-hdmi device'.



Anyway, this thread appears to be a brainstorm session and the worst thing to do in a brainstorm session is to discard ideas halfway!

The editors there seem to have their wires crossed, the poll is asking the uninformed masses to vote on what they "like" most.
They will likely end-up with some of the finalists being OH's that aren't doable, & some non-finalists that are doable.

I am dead certain when you ask general Joe Public something like that the answer sure as hell will be something that bears no close relationship with reality whatsoever.

Am I bloody pessimist today but I know for a fact that 6-sigma worth of people are dumb clueless idiots when it comes to any technology more complicated than a barn door hinge.

Timing the built-in flash may be next to impossible, but it could allow 3D images using both cameras.
How do you transmit the picture between the other half to the Display in realtime?

I think people expect to much from the I2C bus...

If you look up the behavior of that device it uses Wifi to connect to the display and it works with any Android or IOS device. Not everything has to use I2C for Other Half connectivity.

3rd party device makers might like it if they can get things like this mobile payment system (Loop) integrated into an "other half" instead of looking like a bulky case. Why not have a case to house your "other halves" and change them like you change your shoes in the morning? One device--many different looks--maybe a new way of looking at things.

This is a HDMI<->"LCD" converter, for e.g video beamers and DVD-players. The I2C is only the control bus, not the video data.

The device presents itself as a WiFi access point. There is a JSON based API that returns the images as URLs, and the camera has its own storage. The images dont move across the i2c bus. Their android/ios app seems to show a viewfinder, so it looks like it can be near realtime
