How to Customize XBMC 12 Frodo with All the Bells and Whistles Kodi (formerly known as XBMC) is a great entertainment center software. But, here’s the deal: Like many other open source projects, it is driven by a very technical community, and it is not necessarily user-friendly enough for the average person to use and customize. Fortunately, with a bit of time and the right skin, you can set things up properly and make Kodi (XBMC) very user-friendly and rock solid. I have spent countless hours crawling forums and websites, trying to get the live TV setup, premium online content, automatic light control, and all the other settings right. Note: These step-by-step instructions have been tested with Kodi v15, but they should also be compatible with v16 (codename Jarvis).

How to create a time lapse video with Raspberry Pi After installing a Pi camera module and capturing pictures and videos with raspistill and raspivid commands, I wanted to create a time lapse video of the nice scenery that I have in the back of my apartment. For those who don't know what it is, time-lapse video (or often-called time-lapse photography) is a shooting technique where contiguous photo frames of a changing scene are captured for an extended period of time in a much lower rate than a typical video frame rate. When the collected frames are played back in a faster frame rate, it creates a so-called "time-lapsing" effect. You might already have seen stunning looking night-to-day time-lapses or fast moving clouds on TV. In this project, I use the following items to create a case for Raspberry Pi and Picam module before capturing time lapse sequences with them. One used plastic snack container One used SD card plastic wrap Dish washing sponge (remove the green scratchy side and use only the yellow soft side).

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.

Coder Projects Things to make. Stuff to learn. Looking for something to do this weekend? Coder Projects are simple, fun, and sneakily educational things that can all be made with Coder and Rasberry Pi. Using Feed-Forward PID for External Reset About the Author Béla Lipták, PE, control consultant, is also editor of the Instrument Engineers' Hand book and is seeking new co-authors for the for coming new edition of that multi-volume work. He can be reached at Speech Recognition using the Raspberry Pi I've finally received my Raspberry Pi, and I've immediately gotten to work transferring the speech recognition system I used for the robotic arm to the pi. Due to its small size and low power requirements, the Raspberry Pi is an excellent platform for the Julius open-source speech recognition system. This opens up almost limitless possibilities for voice command applications.

Raspberry Pi powered time lapse dolly (RasPiLapse) The heart of this machine is a Raspberry PI, a low cost small footprint computer. It runs linux so it's easy to write and deploy code on it. It also has a GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) connector which we can control. The code is pretty basic and written in python I use the Raspian distro on my Raspberry Pi. SmartSim, a digital circuit designer and simulator Ashley Newson is a sixth-form student from Oxford. Alex Bradbury and Rob Mullins from the Raspberry Pi Foundation met him at the University of Cambridge Computer Lab open day, where he came over with an SD card ready to show off a demo of SmartSim, his home-grown circuit design and simulation package. It was, said Alex, hugely impressive – I’ve had a play too now, and couldn’t agree with him more.

Raspberry Pi: Project 1 – Pandora Streamer « Engineering « Shaun Gehring Overview – What is it Using a Raspberry Pi you can create a pretty cool stand alone Pandora Streamer. Its a pretty easy project to put together and will only take an evening. Even though this project is basic from a Electrical Engineering standpoint you will learn the basics of GPIO, Python, BASH and basic Circuts. The best part is you can totally use this project on a daily basis.
