Compatible WiFi Adapters for your Overlay.live Raspberry Pi

overlay.live-wifi

We receive many questions from users about what USB WiFi adapters they should use on the Raspberry Pi. Surprisingly this is not just a request from Raspberry Pi 2 users – which doesn’t come with on-board wireless functionality. It seems also that “a lot” are having issues with Raspberry Pi 3 itself and deal with broken on-board wireless. Ouch :/

So to narrow down the choice for you of alternative adapters, here is a list of the known to work WiFi adapters that are fully compatible with the host OS we use for Overlay.live.

[Video] Hand’s On the ROG_EXT by elmorlabs

overlay.live-rog_ext-video

We just published a hands-on video with the ROG_EXT by elmorlabs. The ROG_EXT is a Managed Device for Overlay.live which we introduced a few months ago. It is now available in stock and we wanted to share with you some more information about what it can do and most importantly show you what it actually looks like.

In this video we run you through some of the specifications of the product. We also show you how to connect the ROG_EXT to the ROG_EXT port on an ASUS APEX motherboard and to the pins of a RaspberryPi. Super simple!

Overlay.live exhibits with Cooler Master at CES 2018

overlay.live-ces2018

Quick news to share a little video we shot thanks to our friend Karl at CES in Las Vegas. That’s right, we’ve been to Vegas earlier this month to run a small exhibit on the CES 2018 Cooler Master suite.

Over there, for four days, we demoed overlay.live along with French Pro-Overclocker Wizerty which we mentioned in an earlier news on our blog. The experience was very fun and we could introduce media and visitors to two Managed Devices on the platform:

But enough talking, check out the video to learn more: Read more

Overclocker Wizerty uses Telemetry to level up his streams

Wizerty logo

Telemetry is one way to highlight valuable information from your rocket launch … hmm well in this case, it’s not a rocket, it’s a PC. Pro Overclocker (no1 in France) Wizerty is a seasoned enthusiast involved in an extreme eSport known as “overclocking”. His thing? Cranking up the gigahertz on his PC, cooling it down with liquid nitrogen and racing against others in the chase for world records.

Just like in any sports, the saying goes:

if it isn’t done live, it never happened!

Overclockers like Wizerty turn to live streaming on platforms such as Twitch or YouTube Gaming to showcase live their achievements. Wizerty uses a highly entertaining medium to educate and share what makes them tick with other like-minded enthusiasts. Read more

Node.JS library for Overlay.live Now Available

node.js library published for overlay.live

Good news everyone! Today we officially announce the Node.JS library for Overlay.live. The publication of this library echoes our plan to let everyone connect devices with Overlay.live.

This node.js library is the exact same one we are using internally for the proof of concept managed devices we presently have – like the TeVo X2 RaspberryPi shield or the Cooler Master PSU telemetry. Read more

Cooler Master Power Supply added as Managed Device

Today we are really excited to announce the addition of a new Managed Device for Overlay.live, the Cooler Master MasterWatt Maker PSU.

We’ve been working with Cooler Master on this project since we presented the Overlay.live platform to them earlier this year at Computex and it’s been a blast. Week after week the project took shape, and it is now a fully fledged Managed Device – a new member of the Overlay.live compatible devices ecosystem. Read more
