The Guardian The Raspberry Pi computer – how a bright British idea took flight The Guardian The elaborate skydive to a field in Berkshire was accomplished using credit card-sized Raspberry Pi computers which released the toy from the balloon when...
This is a pretty useful tool for the Netduino, which I need for playing around some Micro-WPF demo on the Eve board. As soon you want to deal with web-services, JSON is a must-have format for serializing data.
Lots of projects require a battery backed time and date display or stamp. In this project we took a SainSmart DS1307 RTC Module and connected it to a SainSmart UNO & LCD Shield. We are displaying the date and time on the lcd display.
In order to install, update, upgrade and uninstall software--on a Raspberry Pi-- you will need to know about a tool called apt-get. In this tutorial, I explain apt-get and show you how to use in in the maintenance and use of a Raspberry Pi.
How popular can the Raspberry Pi get? TechRadar UK That's way ahead of schedule - the Raspberry Pi foundation is planning to hit two million units by spring 2014 - and way beyond the project's initial hopes of selling 1,000 units.
New technologies are changing the way we collect biodiversity data. What once required taking expensive, bulky and fragile equipment on field trips can now be collected on cheap, compact and robust devices.
Steve Furber, designer of the original BBC Micro, talks to David Crookes about how the BBC can learn from the past in their new push to teach programming to the masses (There’s an interview w the legendary @FurberSteve in @LinuxUserMag -...
he idea with the Arduino controller is to take the ENGINE ONLY and then let the Arduino manage the engine with the sensors that is on the engine itself. By doing this, the motor swap is reduced to a weekend project and everything in the bus is working as it was before. No instruments modification, no need for external valves and sensors, no adapted cablage. Just the Arduino.
Today we'll be showcasing some creative ways people in the Shapeways community are using Raspberry Pi with 3D printing. Raspberry Pi is a small and capable mini computer that can fit in the palm of your hands.
