Raspberry Pi 2 Media Center: Kodi on XBian Author: Timothy WoodDate: April 2015 Overview This guide walks through the construction and configuration of a home media center from parts to running system. After following these steps, you will have a running Kodi media server on a Raspberry Pi 2 in an Altoids tin case, ready for you to attach a thumb drive or hard drive with your media. These steps detail the method I used in my build with the hardware and software choices I made, but there are other options that you can choose. I included some notes about alternative choices in the steps where alternatives are available.
How to use a multi layered stencil. Stencil overlays. Michael Jackson multi layered stencil from The Stencil Studio.

This scenario allows you to use a Windows 7 PC as a hub for media sharing—where you can share media with other PCs and devices on your home network via streaming, and even stream this information securely over the internet.
BerryBoot - The simplest way to install and load multiple operating systems on a Raspberry Pi The revolutionary cheap and small Raspberry Pi mini computer is so popular now it hardly needs an introduction. After assembling all the bits and pieces needed to run an RPi, you will need to format and load the SD card with an compatible linux operating system of your choice. Here is easy and fast way to get this done.

Ultimate Raspberry Pi Configuration Guide The Raspberry Pi is a great thing: it is real computer, it is cheap ($40), it can interface with electronics, talk to the web and has full HDMI support. However it runs on Linux, which I have a love-hate relationship with. I love the idea of Linux, but when I start messing around the command line and downloading packages and installing things, I often get lost. I've assembled bits and pieces from various online posts and guides into this Instructable, which is what I call the "Ultimate Raspberry Pi Configuration Guide". What this Instructable does is to set up a wireless Raspberry Pi that allows you to:
A laser-cut wooden record that actually plays music If you've ever been curious about the materials that can be used for making a record, you can add a sheet of wood to the list. Instructables user amandaghassaei shows us exactly how to use a laser cutter to make functioning music records out of a piece of wood. And the results are as visually beautiful as they are aurally beautiful. The creator, Amanda Ghassaei writes: These records were cut on an Epilog 120 Watt Legend EXT to a theoretical precision of 1200dpi (the kerf of the cut and some tricks I used to avoid crashing the laser cutter dropped the actual precision down by ~1/6). The audio on the records has a bit depth between 4-5 (typical mp3 audio is 16 bit) and a sampling rate up to about 4.5kHz (mp3 is 44.1kHz).

I want to use this blog post to work through some of the issues I had and how I solved them. What is OpenELEC, well: “OpenELEC is a streamlined Linux distribution that includes only the essential software components and drivers needed to run XBMC and a handful of supporting apps/services” OpenELEC itself was originally designed for other platforms and is currently in the process of porting its software over to Raspberry Pi, therefore it is in a constant state of change.

Display - d-torso Paper craft by Aki Co.,Ltd. The d-torso Mini ADAM & EVE Towers are constructible cardboard craft models made of precision laser-cut parts. The d-torso EVE is made of 123 pieces, and ADAM of 128. With no glue or scissors required for assembly, the models are designed for everyone’s building enjoyment. The d-torso was originally invented by Yuki Matsuoka in 1998 to support his wife’s exhibition of knitwear, and the human shape has been its driving theme ever since. We have developed original technology to shape models of objects not by their outer surfaces, but in precision slices.
