Everyone wants a slice of Raspberry Pi It's 9am on a lovely autumn morning at Cern, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, just outside Geneva. The sun shines on to an open vista of fields and mountains, glistens off nearby lakes. It's an ideal day for cycling, walking, picnicking; almost anything other than messing around with computers in the dark. I am standing in the dark, watching people mess around with computers.

Omxplayer Omxplayer is a video player specifically made for the Raspberry Pi's GPU made by Edgar (gimli) Hucek from the XBMC/Kodi project. It relies on the OpenMAX hardware acceleration API, which is the Broadcom's VideoCore officially supported API for GPU video/audio processing. Raspberry Pi forum user spenning made precompiled binaries available on the forum. See here. Make Your Own Wireless Printer With A Raspberry Pi Wireless technology is perhaps the best improvement to home printing for years. Fewer cables, flexibility about where you can put your printer – it’s win-win. Unless you have an older printer. While it might be easy enough to buy a new printer for under $50, you might have spent enough on your last one, and be unable to justify the outlay.

How to Turn a Raspberry Pi into a Low-Power Network Storage Device Mix together one Raspberry Pi and a sprinkle of cheap external hard drives and you have the recipe for an ultra-low-power and always-on network storage device. Read on as we show you how to set up your own Pi-based NAS. Why Do I Want to Do This? The benefit of having an always-on network storage device is that it’s extremely convenient to have your data (or backup destination) always accessible to the computers both inside and outside your network. The downside, in most instances, is that you’re consuming a fair amount of power for the convenience. Our office server, for example, runs 24/7 and consumes almost $200 worth of power a year.

Control your HVAC Infrared Devices from the Internet with IR Remote (Arduino / Raspberry Pi Compatible) IR Remote is a small shield that allows you to record any infrared command sent by a remote control and resend it from the Internet. It works connected to Arduino and Raspberry Pi, and let us to control any HVAC system including heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and thermostats from the Cloud. We offer 6 different wireless interfaces to connect Arduino and Raspberry Pi to the Internet: WiFi, 3G, GPRS, Bluetooth and 802.15.4 / ZigBee. With IR Remote you can easily control our home HVAC system from a laptop, a webserver or even from your smartphone. The shield is compatible with both Arduino and Raspberry Pi so you can choose your favourite platform to automate your home.

Using a camera with Scratch on the Raspberry Pi I needed camera control with Scratch on the Raspberry Pi for a primary school aerial photography project. I added a new python extension for Simon’s ScratchGPIO that allows either the Raspberry Pi camera or a regular USB webcam to be used with Scratch. Follow Simon’s instructions for installing over on his site. New release: HVAC IR Remote Module for Arduino / Raspberry Pi IR Remote is a small shield that allows you to record any infrared command sent by a remote control and resend it from the Internet.

Building a Raspberry Pi Robot and Controlling it with Scratch Happy New Year everyone! Things have been a bit quiet on this blog due to the Christmas rush, and the fact that we’ve been spending time on product development (more on that in a future post). But here at last is the 3rd and final post in our series on the Raspberry Pi robot we […] Welcome to the second part of our series of posts, describing the workshop we ran at the recent Digimakers event at @Bristol. In the last post we described the outline of the workshop and looked at the hardware of the Raspberry Pi robot that we built for the event.
