Raspberry Pi Remote Connections Without A Network! This is a ultra-cut down version of the detail Guide To…Direct Network Connection , if you run into problems or do not know anything about networks then follow that guide! No keyboard or screen available for your Raspberry Pi, but you have a laptop? The answer is a simple network cable!
Just when you thought you can no longer squeeze anything else into the tiny Raspberry Pi computer, think again: the puny device is getting a video camera. A report on PC World said developers expect to make the HD camera available by early spring, though the camera's specifications have yet to be finalized. "The first cameras are expected to come with a 15-centimeter (just under 6 inches) flat cable and sell for around $25. The lens on the camera is similar to those found on many camera phones and is expected to provide 5 megapixels," PC World said .
Oh Raspberry Pi , is there no end to the fun and creative projects of which you are a part? The latest nifty implementation of the tiny $35 Linux computer is a mobile Raspberry Pi machine called the Pi-to-Go. The brainchild of a fellow named Nathan Morgan, who dug into his nearby stack of Dell laptop parts for the battery he used to make the computer. Morgan, in true open source fashion, is making his project’s schematics and step-by-step instructions available to anyone who would deign to attempt the same thing. He was resourceful in finding components. For example, his LCD is actually an after market camera used to help cars back up safely, and he bought a simple tiny wireless keyboard and mouse combo for input.
The Raspberry Pi is – as we’ve seen in several previous articles – an extremely flexible piece of hardware. Once you’ve installed an operating system, got to grips with the small dimensions, and found a case for it, you’ll be able to install media centre software and perhaps even begin programming software (after all, that’s what it was designed for!). However, you might find that the business of plugging the Raspberry Pi into your big screen plasma TV – the only device in your house with a HDMI connection – is a bit tiresome while your family is watching their favourite show. Alternatively, you might have more than enough HDMI displays but not enough keyboards.
The super low cost computer called the Raspberry Pi is mind-blowing and awesome. As TechCrunch recently reported , the $25 to $35 mini computer on a circuit board is designed to give kids around the globe an easy way to learn computer programming. But the Raspberry Pi is not like a computer you get from Apple or pickup at the local Best Buy. It’s not as simple as plug and play. It takes a bit of extra work and time.
The pint-sized development platform better known as Raspberry Pi has gained an onboard RAM upgrade without any typical price increase. Purchasers will now have access to 512 MB of RAM instead of the previous 256 MB, which will allow multiple programs to be ran simultaneously or programs with higher memory requirements. Good Guy Gregg, err, I mean Raspberry Pi Foundation has decided to keep the pricing at the tiny $35 so that as many people as possible can take advantage of the development board. Even Upton said this was one of the most common suggestions for a "Model C" that would cost more money if produced. "This would be useful for people who want to use the Pi as a general-purpose computer, with multiple large applications running concurrently," he wrote on the official blog. To take advantage of the new RAM that is shipping on boards, users will have to update the firmware running on the system.
The cost of a Raspberry Pi computer you can buy today is $25. It has a 700 MHz CPU with 256 MB RAM. In 2001, the Power Mac G4 Cube, with 450 MHz CPU with 64 MB RAM, cost $1,799. That is how much hardware prices have fallen. Meanwhile, a LEGO X-Wing costs $59.99. So for $25 anyone can work on a project that uses computers at its heart, and if something breaks, they can just go buy a new one.
Yes, the $35 credit card-sized computer-on-a-chip Raspberry Pi is cheap and awesome. But it’s not that powerful. Whether you’re building an aerial drone or a supercomputer , you might want a bit more power under the hood. With this in mind, the organization behind the Raspberry Pi will now let you “turbocharge” the device, cranking it from the standard 700 MHz processor clock speed to as much as 1GHz — without voiding your warranty. The new “Turbo Mode” is available in the latest version of Raspberry Pi’s custom Linux distribution, Raspbian . The Raspberry Pi blog has instructions for upgrading.
Technology is obviously catching up to our current definition of "supercomputer." I mean, when someone can just buy 64 Raspberry Pi computers, get them all talking to each other in a framework built out of Lego, and then call that "super," it sure seems like we need a new word for these things , doesn't it? Engineers at the University of Southampton, being fans of Moore's Law, noticed how the price of putting together a supercomputer has jumped off of a cliff recently, plummeting from millions of dollars to hundreds of thousands to just tens of thousands. That's pretty cheap, but in an effort to go even cheaper, the engineers decided to take advantage of the most bang for the buck computing power available, the teeny tiny and dirt cheap Raspberry Pi. For just $35, the Raspberry Pi includes (among other things) a 700 MHz processor, an Ethernet port and expandable storage in the form of an SD card slot.
The bare essentials ... the Raspberry Pi retails for $40. It's not an Apple. It's not a BlackBerry. But the new, equally fruitily named Raspberry Pi hopes to reintroduce the iGeneration to the joys of tinkering with technology. It comes with a $40 price tag - almost the price of a tray of mangos in high season - but the credit card-size Raspberry Pi is a very different computer proposition. It is stripped down to the bare essentials.
The University of Cambridge has launched a free online course designed to help programming enthusiasts write their own operating system for the Raspberry Pi computer. Called “ Baking Pi – Operating Systems Development ”, the course consists of twelve lessons, introducing the basics of assembly language programming and OS building to people who don’t have much experience with either. Raspberry Pi, created by the non-profit Raspberry Pi Foundation, is a basic ARM-powered computer that can be connected to a TV or monitor via HDMI. It can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, including office work, Internet browsing and high-definition video playback – all possible through a circuit board the size of a credit card – but its real purpose is educational play.

22 April 2012 Last updated at 23:26 GMT By Leo Kelion Technology reporter More than five million copies of the various ZX Spectrum computers were sold over the family's eight year lifespan, not including third-party clones. Click here to see how the computer's design evolved The ZX Spectrum is 30 years old.
The engineer behind iconic British computer the ZX Spectrum has given his backing to the Raspberry Pi project, although he still feels that simplicity is the key to engaging young programmers. In a fascinating interview with the BBC , Richard Altwasser expresses his delight over Raspberry Pi – a tiny and ultra cheap computer that has been designed to capture the hearts and minds of a new generation of kids. "I'm an engineer so I'm delighted at the thought that people are going to be encouraged through the availability of the Raspberry Pi to learn to do programming," said Altwasser.
Where Good Ideas Come From On the flight back from Austria to Montreal I’ve read Steven Johnson’s Where Good Ideas Come From . I really like his work – i’ve read Mind Wide Open and Emergence before – because he manages to write easy-read and entertaining popular science books that at the same time give you tons of information and leave we with an enthusiasm for the topic. Where Good Ideas Come From shows how good ideas are not simple sparks suddenly popping into your mind, but complicated constructs that build on months or years of inputs coming from different conversations, readings, visits to the museum, events in your everyday life, tales told to you by your grandma, etc. They slowly take shape in your make, before one final trigger suddenly transforms them into a clearly graspable concept. Johnson shows and advocates how collaboration and interdisciplinarity are the most fertile grounds for new groundbreaking ideas.
