Install gphoto2 on your raspberry Via the free software gphoto2 it is possible to connect a digital camera (Canon/Nikon/Olympus, full compatibility list) to your Raspberry Pi in order to remotely take pictures and automatically download them to the Raspberry's memory. Easy case You can install gphoto2 very easily via the command line: sudo apt-get install gphoto2 If asked, hit enter to complete your installation. Now you can control your camera with the gphoto2 command line tool, for example: gphoto2 --capture-image-and-download This takes a photo and automatically downloads the created file to the local memory. gphoto2 --help It presents you a long list with numerous possibilties to control your cam. Newer cameras Problems are about to begin when trying to connect a rather new camera to the Raspberry, because of the very rusty old version of gphoto2 that is delivered with Debian which is already about 3 years old. deb stable main contrib with and then go back and update/upgrade your system

Pi-to-Go Aw, yes, the Raspberry Pi Computer, a credit card size mini PC that only cost $35. There are so many possibilities and uses for these small nano PCs. People have made them into PVRs (personal video recorders), retro gaming machines, weather stations, in-car PCs, jukeboxes, and so many more creative ideas. When I started this project four weeks ago, I just wanted to see if it was possible to make an ultra portable, mobile Raspberry Pi that you can take to-go. My mobile Raspberry Pi Computer is now complete and because this is an open source project I wanted to show you everything, including how to build one yourself. Just a quick blurb about myself. LCD Screen The LCD I used is from an after market backup camera system that can be installed in a car. Battery Pack First off, be very careful when messing with lithium-ion batteries. Charging the battery was easy, I just purchased an after market laptop battery charger. Internal Powered Hub Extended Storage 64GB SSD, yes I did! Operating System

Minecraft Pi Recipe Cards | arghbox These Raspberry Pi recipe cards include a selection of basic Python programs that work with Minecraft: Pi Edition. They are designed to be used in workshops or classrooms and cover some fundamentals of programming in Python. You can also use them by yourself as a quick introduction to Python programming with Minecraft Pi. Each of the six recipe card has three parts. The inside pages contain Python code that will create the program alongside an explanation: The last page covers the concepts that were used in the program: The first recipe card includes steps on how to allow Python to interact with a Minecraft Pi game. There are two sets available, one which is designed to be read on the computer and the other which is designed to be easily printed. 1. 1. There is also a free draft book on Python Programming with Minecraft Pi that goes into more depth, which can be found on here. Like this: Like Loading... Related

Programming Instructables member prb3333 has written an extensive tutorial (with code) on programming an ATtiny85 microcontroller chip from the Pi. You have to do some compilation (of avrdude) first and wire the chip up in a certain way on a breadboard.… Read more → If you’ve ever wanted to replicate Tony Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S., you can be well on your way with this project.

Idée/Projet Nous sommes nombreux à nous être procuré un petit ordinateur Raspberry Pi pour nous lancer dans des projets de ouf malade... C'est très cool, mais à part le classique Media Center XBMC, qu'avez-vous fait avec votre Raspberry Pi ? Si vous séchez niveau idées, voici une petite sélection que j'ai rassemblée au cours des derniers mois. J'imagine qu'il y a encore beaucoup d'autres idées et de tutos, donc n'hésitez pas à partager les liens dans les commentaires, je les rajouterai à ma liste. En attendant, j'espère que ceux-ci vous donneront de l'inspiration... On peut donc en faire : Et si vous cherchez un moyen rapide et pas cher de faire un boitier de protection pour vos Raspberry Pi, pensez aux LEGO. Bon, je pourrai continuer comme ça toute la journée, mais va bien falloir que je m'arrête. Amusez-vous bien ! Rejoignez les 60492 korbenautes et réveillez le bidouilleur qui est en vous Suivez KorbenUn jour ça vous sauvera la vie..

MCPI Online Python Programming with Minecraft Pi: Early Draft | arghbox When I first heard that Minecraft would be released for the Raspberry Pi I punched the air. The nice people at Mojang had just given me the perfect platform to teach students programming: a creative platform. One where students are encouraged to explore ideas in a familiar environment, while seeing the tangible results of their efforts. Minecraft Pi uses an application programmer interface (API for short) that allows programmers to interact with a Minecraft game world. Students can combine the API into their own Python programs to do things like place blocks, teleport the player or access hidden features like chat. That is why I have developed a book of resources to teach Python programming with Minecraft Pi. The Book The book consists of a series of exercises and documentation developed to test a student’s understanding of Python and also develop their problem solving skills. Codecademy is my favorite resource for learning to program. The book is free to use and is open source. Download

Raspberry Pi / Android app to remote control a car (reblog plus re-format) “doctoboggan” has created a project with a Raspberry Pi and Android App working in tandem to drive a remote control car. Original article here: Show HN: I built a Raspberry Pi/Android driven toy car | Hacker News but reblogging to include the images in-line to make it easier to read! And I quote… This is the current iteration of the car. Details: I wrote a simple android app that streams the accelerometer data from the phone to the pi over a simple socket. I purchased it from Amazon.Here is a pic of the battery pack I am using for the DC motor. It is an HS-55 and I power it directly from the Pi’s 5v rail.To control it, I use the Servoblaster kernel module.My next plans are to add some sensors and make it autonomous. I’m going to try to start my own robotics project with the blog posts I’ve accumulated over the past few weeks. Like this: Like Loading...

GPS tracking August 03, 2012 at 10:26 PM I thought it might be fun to turn my Raspberry Pi into a vehicle tracker. The nearest I got to building a truly bespoke tracker was in 2004 using a Siemens TC45 & later TC65, where I wrote the firmware. There wasn't really anything on the market then to do what we wanted, so we built our own, and I took care of the software side. The Raspberry Pi has opened up new opportunities. I used a GlobalSat BR-305 GPS receiver, which has an RS232 output. I already have C# code to do vehicle tracking, such as the code I use on Android devices. See it in action:. Tags: GPS Tracking Raspberry Pi gps Category: Google lance Coder, transformant un Raspberry Pi en une plateforme de développement Web Coder, un nouveau projet qui va sortir des bureaux de Creative Lab de Google, est un outil open source qui vous permet de transformer facilement un Raspberry Pi en un véritable serveur Web de base avec un environnement de développement dédié au développement Web. L’outil qui a été développé par un Googler, Jason Striegel, ainsi que le designer, Jeff Baxter, accompagnés d’une petite équipe à New York, est censé être un environnement pour les professeurs et les parents désireux d’enseigner les enfants « aux bases du développement pour le web ». Mettre en place Coder sur votre Raspberry Pi ne devrait prendre que 10 minutes. Le projet offre à ceux qui le souhaitent une plateforme privée pour le développement d’une application Web. Cependant, pour ceux qui connaissent déjà les rudiments du développement, Coder est également une chouette plateforme pour jouer et offrir un environnement sandbox pour pas cher, et ainsi expérimenter de nouvelles idées.
