OpenStack on RPi (Part 1) Recently I’ve embarked down a course to get OpenStack up and running on the Raspberry Pi. Before we get too deep into the particulars, let’s talk about why such a thing should be done. What could one gain by running OpenStack on the Pi? Who would use it? Coder for Raspberry Pi A simple way to make web stuff on Raspberry Pi. Coder is a free, open source project that turns a Raspberry Pi into a simple platform that educators and parents can use to teach the basics of building for the web. New coders can craft small projects in HTML, CSS, and Javascript, right from the web browser. Download Coder 1.33GB | Coder v0.9Now supports Raspberry Pi 2! How to Install and Connect.

Turn a Raspberry Pi into a Personal VPN for Secure Browsing Anywhere You Go If you're in a coffee shop, I could sniff your traffic as you log-in to Facebook, your email, your bank, Amazon, etc. Whether that's me physically being there or me rigging up a cheap rig like a pi to sniff and send me the results. There is no encryption between you and a WAN. This is pretty necessary when traveling (especially Eastern Europe). If you have a VPN to your house, then you have an encrypted connection between you and there, your traffic between you and that place is encrypted (hopefully a network you know and trust - such as your house). I don't sniff traffic, but it is easy to do (even from an Android phone) and I mention it to suggest a reason as to why.

Waveshare DVK512 Kits For Raspberry Pi Model B+ Include RTC, Sensors, LCD Display, and More Beaglebone (Black) expansion boards are called capes, Minnowboard ones are lures, and Raspberry Pi model B+ add-on boards can be HATs (HArdware on Top). When I found a kit for the Raspberry Pi model B+ on DealExtreme, based on Waveshare DVK512 add-ons board I thought it might have found a Chinese HAT, but unfortunately it is not compliant with HAT board specifications as it misses an EEPROM,and the dimensions are not the correct one either. Nevertheless, the kit, as well as extra accessories such as a 3.2″ LCD display, can still be interesting. DVK512 Board with LCD1602 Display The kit on DX comes with the following items: Lapse Pi – Motorised Time-lapse Rail with Raspberry Pi Here’s another article in the series of photography related DIY projects using the Raspberry Pi single board computer. This time it’s a Time Lapse rail. In this case, I think it’s OK to start with the results, so here’s a video of a few time-lapse sequence that I’ve put together over the last few weeks.

OpenStack Swift on RPi March 24, 2013 Every attendee at PyCon 2013 got a free Raspberry Pi. So, naturally, the first thing I did was set up OpenStack Swift on it. Raspberry Pi to Arduino Shields Connection Bridge Difficulty Level: Expert - The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi. It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry. In order to make complete the compatibility we have created the arduPi library which allows to use Raspberry with the same code used in Arduino. To do so, we have implemented conversion functions so that you can control in the same way as in Arduino all the I/O interfaces: i2C, SPI, UART, analog, digital, in Raspberry Pi. Let's summarize what we can do using this shield along with the arduPi library:

Raspberry Pi B+ Expansion Board DVK512 is an expansion board designed for Raspberry Pi Model B+, integrates various components and interfaces for connecting external accessory boards. It's ideal for Raspberry Pi Model B+ evaluation and development.

The description here does not yet take that into acoount. A quick work-around is to allow anonymous (unsecure!)

Remote Controlled Quadcopter Based On Raspberry Pi We have seen a lot of remote controlled quadcopters based on many micro processors or dedicated flight controllers, but not many people would have thought of running a Linux machine on a quadcopter! Since Raspberry Pi has been very popular these years, and the it’s compact size and computation power compared to most micro-controllers, it would make a good flight controller. The PiCopter is a remote controlled quadcopter based on a Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi handles all the flight control without using a micro controller like Arduino. However many people have doubt about Raspberry Pi doesn’t run in real time so might have trouble getting sensor data and sending commands to the motor in the right timing, eventually leads to instability. But Marlon explains “Hard real time” is not required (no need for real time kernel, only stardard Raspbian) as you only have to update the motors with at least 10hz.
