PicoVision (incl. Pico W)

  • BrandPimoroni

Description

PicoVision is a powerful digital video stick for bold audio visual adventures, with dual RP2040 chips and a conveniently HDMI-shaped output connector to boot.

Use PicoVision to make and run your own homebrew games, draw digital art, recreate beloved demos, screensavers or WinAmp visualisations, visualise data, subvert advertising billboards, emulate CeeFax or whip up signage.

  • GPU (RP2040)
    Does all the heavy-lifting to display buttery-smooth, high-res, animations on your TV or monitor via HDMI.
  • CPU (Pico W)
    Runs your code and provides an interface to other gadgets through USB, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
  • HDMI connector
    Make use of TVs, monitors, giant projectors, or even tiny displays for building into a cosplay outfit.
  • Line out audio
    Bash out some bleeps and bloops! This digital audio interface can produce some quality noise.
  • microSD card
    Never run out of space for your lovely assets by adding a sizeable microSD card to your setup.
  • Qw/ST connector
    Add sensors or other types of breakout to your project so they can react to the world around them.
  • On-board reset and user buttons
    Create a simple user interface for your project without needing to add any extras.

You can program PicoVision using C++ or MicroPython. C++ will get you the best performance, but if you're a beginner we'd recommend MicroPython for ease of getting started.

Either way, you'll have access to PicoGraphics libraries which will let you easily manipulate shapes, text and images, some exciting new vector graphics and font functionality courtesy of PicoVector, and the ability to make bleeps, bloops and other fun electronic noise with PicoSynth.
