That’s cool, thanks for the sharing!

That is very cool, indeed. What’s the battery life like?

With the Jetson Nano & Kinect running about 2 hours.
With just the Jetson Nano running about 10 hours

Yes, very cool. I have a little 7" HD display sitting around just looking for a project like that . Thanks for sharing.
