Presents Wolfson Audio Card for Raspb Overview Wolfson and element14 introduce an audio card to offer Raspberry Pi users the ability to capture audio alongside their camera, and experiment with stereo digital capture and playback. Raspberry Pi, whilst doing a fantastic job of being a small and powerful computer, does this by a number of compromises. One of those is the limitations on its audio capabilities. rpix86 by Patrick Aalto Disclaimer rpix86 is freeware but copyright (c) 2013-2014, Patrick Aalto.

Interfacing with a Wiimote - Physical Computing with Raspberry Pi Difficulty: intermediate This tutorial will show you how to connect a Wiimote to the Pi over Bluetooth. You will then be able to read input from it, including the state of the buttons and accelerometer and send it output, e.g. changing the LED state and playing with rumble. It is recommended to use one of our SD cards or images, if you are not then you will need: python-cwiid and to set your Bluetooth in discoverable mode with sudo hciconfig hci0 piscan. Installing Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi & using SSH and VNC to remotely connect to the Raspberry Pi UPDATED: July 18th 2013 This blog entry will describe: The installation of the Raspbian Wheezy Linux Distribution on an SD card.Powering up the Raspberry Pi (RPi) board and connecting it to the networkRemotely Accessing the RPi board via SSHInitial Configuration of the Rasbpian OS/ RPi boardRemotely Accessing the RPi’s graphical desktop environment (LXDE) via VNC For starters you’ll need a microUSB terminated AC adapter, an Ethernet cable & an SD card. I highly recommend that you use a 4GB SD card as a minimum. Also this tutorial assumes that you are running a Debian or Ubuntu Based Linux operating system on your PC.
Raspberry Pi + Webcam + Python + BASH + Dropbox = geek I recently acquired a Raspberry Pi and have been playing with it for some time. It amazes me how powerful can something so small and cheap be. We could say that the Raspberry Pi is just a really small computer without case (or fans). There are countless projects counting on the power, price and size of the Raspberry Pi, but I wanted to implement an easy one just to see what kind of things could be done. My goal was to set the Raspberry Pi with a Logitech Quickcam Express camera plugged in, to upload a picture to my Dropbox folder, whenever anyone in the world visited a website hosted in the same Raspberry Pi.
Pi MusicBox Make your Raspberry Pi stream! Welcome to the Swiss Army Knife of streaming music using the Raspberry Pi. With Pi MusicBox, you can create a cheap (Sonos-like) standalone streaming music player for Spotify, Google Music, SoundCloud, Webradio, Podcasts and other music from the cloud. HackLab : Pixel Hacking and 3D Programming with GeeXLab Latest Code sample The new gfx03.lua helper lib, available with GeeXLab 0.9.4.0+ (in GeeXLab/libs/lua/) is an improved version of gfx02.lua.
Ultrasonic Distance Measurement Using Python – Part 1 LEDs, buzzers and switches are the most common items people attempt to interface to their Raspberry Pi’s. Something I found in eBay that is a little bit different is an ultrasonic measurement module. This allows you to measure the distance to the nearest wall or solid object. The modules are easy to buy, cheap and relatively straight forward to interface to the GPIO header.
RPi Setting up a static IP in Debian Using a static IP can be very useful in case you wish to easily access your RPi without need to get its IP address every time it boots or reconnects to the network (i.e. using SSH, (S)FTP services). To achieve this there are a few quick steps to be followed. You only need to modify the file /etc/network/interfaces Before you do, backup the current version of the interfaces file, if there is already one present: pi@raspberry:sudo cp /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces.sav You can edit the file with any text editor such as vi or vim.
