I was invited to a dinner at Queens’ College in Cambridge a few weeks ago. I got talking to another attendee, and said enthusiastically: “Do you know, I don’t think I’ve been here since I was an undergraduate. Back then I was here every week.” “Supervisions?” “No. This is where the Star Trek society met.” My... Continue reading
Today we’ve an excellent project from our forums to share with you: Jonathon Duerig, known as duerig on the forums, posts about the standalone book scanner he has built, controlled by a Raspberry Pi 2 and using the Raspberry Pi Touch Display as an interface. It’s a large and fairly imposing object, based on The... Continue reading
Readers who’ve been with us since the beginning of this year might remember Bernd Krolla’s beautiful and elegant Raspberry Pi-based Wordclock. Since we last wrote about it, Bernd and friends have continued to work on the project, and they’ve added a few new features, which Bernd introduces here. Presenting new features of a Raspberry Pi...

You may have noticed that the touch display came out a couple of days ago and while the response has been fantastic it’s still a bit early for display-based projects to blog about. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned in three and a half years of blogging for Raspberry Pi it’s this: don’t try... Continue reading
A few weeks ago Matt Timmons-Brown, The Raspberry Pi Guy, visited Pi Towers to interview Raspberry Pi Trading CEO Eben Upton. Over the course of an hour and a half, Matt drew Eben’s detailed answers on some of the topics that hundreds of you put forward in response to a call for questions. When might... Continue reading
You’ve been incredibly patient: thank you. The official Raspberry Pi touch display is on sale today, priced at $60 (plus local taxes and shipping): you can buy it at RS Components/Allied Electronics and at Premier Farnell/Newark. Other sellers will be receiving stock later this week. We gave one to Alex Eames of RasPi.TV a couple of... Continue reading
We loved this project from Bernd Krolla – it’s beautiful, it’s useful, it taught him some stuff he didn’t know already – and it’s way, way cheaper than buying something like this ready-made in a store would be. This is not the first Wordclock we’ve seen, but it’s by far the most elegant, and it’s beautifully... Continue reading
Greg Cope mailed us a few weeks ago with a pointer to this project, which has been monitoring DevOps at the Financial Times (FT) here in the UK. It’s hard for everyone in the group to simultaneously maintain an overview of the health of the stack under normal circumstances. They use Nagios, a great piece of... Continue reading
Michael Teeuw was out shopping with his girlfriend, when he noticed a display mirror with illuminated lighting. Being one of those people whose minds tend to wander in the frocks department, he decided he’d go home and make a better one. With one-way mirror glass (the sort they use in TV-show and, for all I...

Alex Eames runs RasPi.TV, which we think is probably the best of all the Pi YouTube tutorial channels out there; if you haven’t subscribed already, you should. He dropped by the office last week (it was deeply, deeply weird hearing his voice coming out of an actual human being) to say hi, and to show... Continue reading
