Wednesday grab bag Another post in an occasional series on the cool stuff people have been doing with their Pis. Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday – total disorganisation on our part. The event we were at yesterday (at which we won a paperweight proclaiming that Eben is Cambridge’s most influential business person, a rather phallic award, and a box of chocolates – hurray chocolates) went on for longer than we’d expected, we didn’t get to do half the things we were meaning to before the end of the day, and we are reminded that it’s probably getting close to time to hire some admin staff, because this diary is becoming a MONSTER. First up, some competition news. In other competition news, if you submitted an entry to our own Summer Coding Contest (which we’re judging at the moment – we had a lot of really excellent and complicated entries, so it’ll take us another couple of weeks to get through them all), you should have received an acknowledgement email from us.

Arduino - HomePage Sneak Peek: Adafruit Raspberry Pi WebIDE September 19, 2012 AT 2:14 pm We love the Raspberry Pi. This tiny computer has so much potential for makers, and it is offered at an extremely reasonable price. The one thing we didn’t like about the Pi is how inaccesible it is to those who are new to Linux. As the name suggests, the Raspberry Pi WebIDE is entirely web based. We have also included a built-in terminal so you can listen to, and talk directly with your Raspberry Pi. We have so many cool things planned for the WebIDE, and expect to have plenty of updates (especially at the beginning). Like I said, this is just a sneak peek, and covers only a few of it’s many features. Stay tuned to the Adafruit blog for more updates. Related Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

Framboise 314, le Raspberry Pi à la sauce française…. | Le Raspberry Pi, un ordinateur à 35€ ? Je demande à voir ! nRF51822 - Nordic Semiconductor The hardware tools in the nRF51 series tool chain consist of an evaluation kit and a nRFgo compatible development kit, in addition to application specific reference designs. The software support are split in two major parts: SoftDevices containing wireless protocol stacks; and the nRF51 Software Development Kit (SDK) forming a common code base for all nRF51 devices. 3rd Party Supporting Products nRF51822 Evaluation Kit (nRF51822-EK) The evaluation kits gives you the lowest cost entry point to development with the nRF51822. The kit operates stand alone, and is based around a small module with headers for all IO pins, 2 buttons, 2 LED's as well as a built in Segger on board programming and debugging over USB solution. Please note that progamming and debugging functionality on the evaluation kit is limited to the devices in the kit itself.

HP Elite Slice Review: Mighty and Modular Mini PC The good Compact, attractive design Modular customization Better-than-average performance The bad Limited selection of modules Verdict The HP Elite Slice is a stackable system that gives you a highly capable mini PC with an array of custom features. The HP Elite Slice ($699 starting, $1,217 as tested) puts the power of a business desktop into a tiny package. Error loading player: No playable sources found With strong performance, a handful of useful modules and covers to choose from, and an elegant design, the HP Elite Slice should show up in offices soon. Design The compact Elite Slice desktop has a charcoal-gray finish with a stylized HP logo across the lid. Stacked like the layers of a Big Mac, the modular design starts with the HP Elite Slice on top. This core unit can be expanded with a number of accessory modules, which stack underneath it. Ports On the bottom of the Elite Slice is a specialized USB-C connector for attaching additional Slice modules. Expansion Modules Performance Bottom Line

R-Pi NAS Back to RPi Guides. Raspberry Pi Network Attached Storage This project configures your Raspberry Pi to share files with any other computer on your local network. You can add a large hard disk to the RPi and use this to store your important files/photos/videos in a central location. The files on your RPi can be easily accessed from any type of computer which is connected to your network, for example a Windows PC, a Linux PC, A Mac, a smartphone, etc. In a classroom, each student can have access to a private area, and also a public area for sharing files. Warning: Make sure that you store your important files in more than one location. Note: There are two major classes of Network Attached Storage Low-power NAS. This project does not require any coding or compilation. You need to...

Lenovo Thinkpad Stack - Full Review and Benchmarks Traveling for business can mean carrying a lot of heavy gear, but it doesn't have to be that way. Lenovo's ThinkPad Stack is comprised of four modular accessories -- a wireless router, an external hard drive, a battery pack and a Bluetooth speaker -- that magnetically attach to each other, sharing power and data while taking up minimal space on your desk. Though each of the individual pieces works well enough on its own, their premium prices are only justified if you intend to use them together. article continued below Design Blocky, black and rectangular with the ThinkPad logo in their lower right corners, the Stack accessories share the same aesthetic as Lenovo's business notebooks. Each Stack module has a small, portable footprint at 5.4 x 3.3 inches. Wireless Router The router is a strange beast, as it's all but required if you want to use the Stack at its full potential, but it's rickety when it comes to its basic functions.

NasBerryPi 01 : Présentation Ce post est le premier d’une liste de tutoriels sur le raspberry PI, cliquez ici pour accéder au sommaire ! Vous est il déjà arrivé de désirer ardemment quelque chose sans réellement savoir quelle utilisation vous en feriez ? C’est mon gros problème avec le raspberry pi… Le raspberry Pi c’est, pour faire court, un pc de la taille d’une carte de crédit, pouvant supporter une distribution linux, pour le prix de …30 euros (+-10€). Le pi dispose de nombreux port/prises/capteurs , usb, ethernet, bluetooth … Vous l’aurez compris, les applications de ce genre de matos sont nombreuses (et peu coûteuses) d’ou l’objet de ma convoitise, et celle de quelques centaine de milliers de geeks. Imaginez les applications que vous pourriez faire d’un mini serveur dédié portable à 30€ !! Domotique : installer des serveur raspberry sur chaque machine Electroménager et contrôler chaque serveur depuis sont réseaux. J’en veux j’en veux j’en veux !!!! Je hais ces foutus stratèges commerciaux.

Pi Crust breakout board makes it easy to get peripherals on Raspberry Pi Joe Walnes, a Chicago-based hacker and maker, has just released a design for what he has dubbed the Pi Crust: a very cheap new hardware add-on for the Raspberry Pi. The breakout board, which debuted on Wednesday, is meant to make it easier to tack various hardware peripherals onto the cheap computer, and it does so in an compact design. The new board only adds 2mm of height to the existing Raspberry Pi. As Walnes lays out on his site, there are various well-labelled pins, including GPIO, I2C, SPI, UART, and power. "This makes it so you can connect things directly to a Raspberry Pi. Expanding access to the Raspberry Pi's General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) pins is probably one of the most important aspects of this add-on—Arduinos, for example, use GPIOs to read from various environmental sensors. "However all the different signals are grouped together, which makes them hard to connect to. Walnes isn’t selling the Pi Crust; he's just making the design specification available.
