Would an investment of $35 for a Raspberry Pi and a little elbow-grease be more palatable? You can use the credit card sized Pi as a Google Cloud Print server to enable remote printing to any standard USB printer.
A 3D Printable Raman Spectrometer that uses a raspberryPi, a couple of arduino compatible ARM boards, a really bright laser and some parts you can grab from eBay, adafruit, sparkFun, Mouser, or wherever...!
BASIC DESIGN GOALS: 1. Make it 3D Printable. 2. Make it modular and easy to upgrade. 3. Make it as easy to build as possible. 4. Make it easy to customize and open to improvement. 5. Use only commonly available off the shelf components whenever possible. 6. Have a remote interface that will allow it to be controlled and viewed from anywhere. 7. Compare the spectra to the online spectral databases. (i.e. ASTER, ENVI, etc.) 8. Provide the capability to log data to remote databases, share with friends and colleagues.. 9. Not be just another open source spectrometer.. 10. Make it easy to use and intuitive. 11. Make it attractive with an elegant design.. 12. Make it useful and just cool to have!
This retro radio project brings back old to meet the new. A trendy old radio that plays any music you want, not just the boring stuff that you can get through the radio waves! Using the credit card sized computer, Raspberry Pi–the sky is the limit.
Tom Igoe some days ago wrote an interesting post about Arduino Yún on his blog. We post it here as it could be useful to the Arduino Community. ————————– Recently, Federico Fissore added node.js to the package repository for the Arduino Yún.
I haven't fully utilized the capabilities provided by it yet, but I've managed to get it up and running quite easily thanks to a lot of great posts and troubleshooting guides on some blogs and the Raspberry Pi forum.
Add A Virtual Keyboard To A Raspberry Pi Lifehacker Australia We've shown off a few different Raspberry Pi projects that use touchscreens in the past, but one of the problems with them is that you still have to connect them to a full keyboard.
Almost a year ago, [miker00lz] started a thread on the Arduino forums telling everyone about a 6502 emulator and BASIC interpreter he wrote for an Arduino Uno. The chip inside the Uno isn't a powerhouse by any means, and ...
