Does the Raspberry Pi3 need cooling and are the CPU heatsinks effective? After getting temperature warnings on my RPi3 I decided to see if heatsinks help.
I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3 which i want to connect to via SSH from my Android tablet or phone when i am not in range of my home router.
My requirements are for when the pi is at home it connects to my home router or other known routers so it is available on the local network. If no router is found when it is started up then it will create a wifi hotspot, which is not rooted to the Internet, so i can SSH to the RPi from another device and control the camera and run other custom scripts.
It was announced in February 2016 that OpenGL drivers were being tested for the Raspberry PI allowing full 3D hardware graphics and a lot more Linux software to run on the RPi. Along with the release of the more powerful Raspberry Pi 3 I thought I will try out some existing OpenGL Games and software.
