ZeroBoy – A poor man’s retropie “portable”

A nice build log of ZeroBoy portable retropie project, that is available on Github: You know when you see something and it give you instant inspiration and you also see a few ways you would also improve it. The thing I seen was wonky resistor score zero it’s basically a raspberry pi “hat” that has […]

Building a Midi hat and jukebox using the Raspberry Pi

Dr. Scott M. Baker has published a new build: I picked up a Roland SC-55 to use with my retrocomputer setup recently, and I figured it would be cool to turn the thing into a standalone midi jukebox, so that no “computer” is required. I also figured this would be relatively easy, using a raspberry […]

The Boat PC – a marine based Raspberry Pi project

Domipheus has published a new build: In late 2015 I was doing my usual head-scratching about what gifts to get various family members for the holiday season. My wife mentioned making something electronic for my father-in-laws boat, and after a few hours of collecting thoughts came up with an idea: A Raspberry Pi computer, which […]

MeArm Pi – Build your own Raspberry Pi powered robot arm!

Here’s an interesting open source project on Kickstarter the world’s first robot arm kit for the Raspberry Pi, the MeArm Pi: We believe in helping people understand how the world works. With so much development going on in robotics at the moment, now is the perfect time to get to know what it takes to build […]

Raspberry Pi RF frequency counter

A Raspberry PI RF frequency counter project from Scott Harden, that is available on GitHub: Raspberry PI RF Frequency Counter with Python Interface. The RF signal clocks a 32-bit counter (SN74LV8154) connected to a 16-bit IO expander (MCP23017) accessable to the Raspberry Pi (via I²C) to provide real-time frequency measurements from a python script. More details […]

An open source 3D Scanner made with Raspberry Pi

Boris Landoni from Open Electronics writes about a new open source 3D Scanner made with Raspberry Pi: This being said, we may move on to talk about our 3D scan approach, that consists in using a linear laser, that is, one capable of drawing a vertical line having a constant luminous intensity, and in shooting the images that […]

Raspberry Pi web server using flask to control GPIOs

Rui Santos from Random Nerd Tutorials writes: In this project you’ll create a standalone web server with a Raspberry Pi that can toggle two LEDs. You can replace those LEDs with any output (like a relay or a transistor). In order to create the web server you will be using a Python microframework called Flask. […]

Home automation with Telegram BOT

Luca Dentella has written an article describing how he developed a bot to control his Raspberry Pi via Telegram:  The project I’m going to describe today it’s a sort of proof of concept that will demonstrate the possibility to remote control sensors and actuators (for example a couple of relays) via Telegram. Telegram is an instant messaging […]

Windows 10 IoT core controlling a Raspberry Pi 2 robot

Windows 10 IoT Core running a Raspberry Pi 2 robot by Scott Hanselman: Starting with a Raspberry Pi 2, walk through the setup instructions here. You do need to have a Windows 10 today to installing Windows 10 IoT Core but at least it’s gotten a lot easier with the latest build for IOT. There’s […]

Raspberry Pi garage door controller

As a follow up to yesterday’s Raspberry Pi and ARM uC Breakout + DirtyPCBs mini-review post,  hipfan75 has posted the completed Raspberry Pi-based Garage Door controller project: Right now, all of the sensors and actuators are connected to Raspberry Pi GPIOs. At some point I may move them to the STM32. I have disabled I2C […]
