Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display - Raspberry Pi Swag The 7” Touchscreen Monitor for Raspberry Pi gives users the ability to create all-in-one, integrated projects such as tablets, infotainment systems and embedded projects. The 800 x 480 display connects via an adapter board which handles power and signal conversion. Only two connections to the Pi are required; power from the Pi’s GPIO port and a ribbon cable that connects to the DSI port present on all Raspberry Pi’s. Touchscreen drivers with support for 10-finger touch and an on-screen keyboard will be integrated into the latest Raspbian OS for full functionality without a physical keyboard or mouse. Turn your Raspberry Pi into a touch screen tablet, infotainment system, or standalone device.Truly interactive - the latest software drivers will support a virtual ‘on screen’ keyboard, so there is no need to plug in a keyboard and mouse.Make your own ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) devices including a visual display.

How to design automata and mechanical toys Brief History of Automata The following buttons will lead you on to a number of topics designed to help you understand more about mechanisms, basic engineering principles as well as designing and making your own automata and mechanical toys. Craft Education have two books entitled: 'How to Design and Make Automata' and 'How to Design and Make Simple Automata' as well as aCD-ROM for more information click on the links below. The Online Learning Blog from Study2U Supposedly browsing the internet requires more brain power than watching television. Although judging from some of the websites we’ve come across that assumption is cast into doubt. Here’s some of the sites we like that might get your brain to sit up and listen.

Scratch-Off Save-the-Date You won the lottery when you found each other, so send this cheeky save-the-date card to let guests share in your luck. After scraping off the paint with a penny, they'll hit the jackpot: your wedding date!

Creating your first Scratch Program — Embedit Electronics First off, here is a video demonstration of Scratch. It goes through the creation of a Scratch program that utilizes the RPiSoC’s analog functionality. I then go one step further and create a simple two player game out of it. For this post I thought I’d give a detailed explanation of all the Scratch blocks used in the video.

Magnet Man - Cool Experiments with Magnets Cool Experiments with Magnets This web site is devoted to magnetism and the cool experiments you can do with permanent magnets and electro-magnets. Some of the experiments are very basic - things you've done since third grade. Others are unique - perhaps you hadn't thought of doing some of these before, or had difficulty in trying to set them up. Lists of the materials needed for the demonstrations, directions on how to assemble them, instructions on how to show them, and notes on how they work are all here for you. How to Learn Without Memorizing Photo by Edwin Stemp Rote memorization is an inefficient way to learn. Just retaining a single formula can mean pounding the same information into your skull dozens of times. If your computer hard drive had this accuracy, you’d probably throw it out. Unfortunately, you’re stuck with your brain.

Planting A Pineapple Did y’all know that you can take this and turn it into… This? And that this will eventually produce… Using Android cell phone and Arduino + BT to control LED ON/OFF This is a simple example to implement how to use android mobile phone to control LED ON/OFF thru Arduino +BT HC_05. <Picture 1> This show the circuit design. I used the Arduino Digital Pin D2,D3 as RX.TX signal. <Picture2> Using APP inventor 2 to create android APP .
