Have you ever wanted to stop paying for a landline but didn't know how? In this article I'll review the steps I used to configure a VoIP land line using a SIP interface through a Raspberry Pi based PBX with Freeswitch and Google Voice. In other words, make free calls! NOTE: You will not have 911/Emergency services with this solution!
Most of my clocks (e.g. this Nixie clock, this other Nixie clock, BookClock, and obviously Wise Clock 4) have on-board Bluetooth, intended mainly for setting up the time, without the need for buttons (the lousy holes I would drill may negatively...
Previously, we looked at creating a Low Power Custom Arduino Sensor Board for use in a sensor network. Now, let's look at writing the software for our sensor network using that custom board. We will revisit the bathroom occupancy sensor as an example.
We took our LCD Keypad Shield, and added our Weather Shield that we used with the web server project. Now we have temperature, humidity, pressure, and more displaying on the LCD. Just press the buttons to see the various readings.
ITProPortal Raspberry Pi and Workshare hook up to teach coding skills to youngsters ITProPortal Workshare, the London-based provider of secure enterprise file sharing, is getting together with the Raspberry Pi team (and the BCS, along with The...
Auto World News Arduino-Powered Business Card Lets You Play Tetris On It Ubergizmo Business cards are typically a straightforward affair. They contain your name, the company you work for, your contact details, and your position in the company.
The smart cocktail shaker is a project to help you easily mix drinks using an Arduino, a load cell from a cheap kitchen scale, and an Android application. By measuring the weight of a cocktail shaker, an Arduino can send the amount of poured liquid to an Android application over a USB or bluetooth connection in real time. Making a drink is as easy as following the steps on screen--no more guessing or fumbling with measurements!
Treehugger Make a cheap sous vide cooker with Arduino and a rice cooker Treehugger Sous-vide cooking is a way of cooking food where precise temperatures are used to cook the food for long periods of time.
The cofounder of the open source microcontroller Arduino, Massimo Banzi, doesn’t mince words. “Italy is the kind of a country where if you are young, you don’t exist,” he says. “It’s a country run by old farts.” Banzi decided not to accept the status quo. Arduino was designed in Italy, by virtue of a foolish young Banzi on a quest for love. Today, Arduino is an enormously popular single-board microcontroller used to develop interactive objects.
[technolomaniac] is kicking butt over at Hackaday Projects. He's creating a low cost Arduino based FPGA shield. We've seen this pairing before, but never with a bill of materials in the $25 to $30 range.

ReadWrite The Quantified Fish: How My Aquarium Uses Raspberry Pi ReadWrite However, with the help of a Raspberry Pi, I found a way to make the world's most low-maintenance pet even easier to care for than before.
...Arduino gear has become a favorite of hacker-spaces, maker garages, and fabrication labs worldwide. Thousands of foreigners all over the world contribute to Arduino code—Arduino has globalized brainpower. But Arduino also has a homeland: It's an Italian device. Arduino gear is commonly packaged and shipped from one of my favorite hangouts, the Torino Fablab, the fabrication laboratory of Turin...
How to make a desktop PC out of a Raspberry Pi Computer Business Review The Raspberry Pi, a British-built tiny computer that costs around £35, has revolutionised the way people have gone about learning to code in the past two years.
The sample device is based on the Netduino development board (netduino.com). This open source board is used by hobbyists, academics and industrial engineers to build working prototype devices. And, because the Netduino is pin-compatible with the Arduino, you can attach your Arduino shields to quickly add functionality. (A shield is a board with specific functionality, such as wireless communication, motor control, Ethernet, RS232, LCD display and so on.) My sample device uses an RS232 shield to download the firmware. It uses the onboard USB connector to transmit and receive data.
