PanARMENIAN.Net Raspberry Pi to get a video camera PCWorld Raspberry Pi developers claim the camera board has been developed as an alternative to using USB cameras with the Raspberry PI, as it provides a better quality resolution at a cheaper price...
It’s really the Arduino story all over again, but for a different audience and with a completely different hardware and software underpinning. As a matter of fact, the “RPi” as it’s often called, can run the Arduino IDE on-board, which means these two platforms are really complementary in actual use.
The performance of this ARM board with on-board GPU is very impressive, but it’s no match for computers with a modern Intel processor (nor does it need to be, at that price!). As a ballpark figure, think of it as 1/10th to 1/20th the performance of a i5 or i7.
[Todd Harrison] really has our number. Like him, we don't want to spend money when we don't have to, and hacking our own solutions is a lot more fun anyway. This time around he's helping out a friend who is a ham radio ...
Welcome to the seventh instalment of Dive Into JeeNodes. Hello RPi, meet the JeeLink!
With all the RPi setup out of the way, it’s time to hook it up to the hardware. Fortunately, most of the essential ingredients are already included in the RPi. The JeeLink is based on an FTDI chip, for which the driver will be auto-loaded by Linux when it’s plugged in.
This Space Invaders game does more with less. [Rjk79] managed to make a video game using a two-line character display. The game consists of a wave of invaders on the top line, with the defender cannon on the bottom.
[Fabio Varesano's] new Arduino compatible board packs a full power punch in a ultra compact layout, measuring at 20.7x15.2 mm, the Femtoduino is probably the smallest 328 based Arduino compatible board around.
Welcome to the sixth instalment of Dive Into JeeNodes. We’re halfway there!
This part is probably the most complex piece of the journey called DIJN. Then again, you’re about to set up a self-contained server which can be used for a truly astonishing number of tasks. Linux is everywhere nowadays, and this is probably one of the easiest, lowest-cost, and most risk-free ways to tap into that world which has driven – and evolved alongside – the Open Source Software trend for so long already.

The goal for this project is the following: Have a Netduino sending it’s orientation data (XYZ) over Bluetooth to WP8 which displays a 3D representation of it (at the right angle of course), and for bonus points attach a potentiometer to control the zoom.
[Thomas] wanted to play around with a few high-power LEDs and a RaspberryPi. LED controllers usually require some form of PWM to change the brightness of a LED, and unfortunately the Pi only has one PWM pin.
To make communication more robust, I decided to implement a more formal communication over serial to enable applications that have some idea if a command sent to Arduino was successfully carried out or not, and also introduce basic error recovery if invalid commands or wrong number of parameters are received.
