One of the most popular projects we’ve featured here was Dave Hunt’s PiPhone. It’s a working mobile phone built around a Raspberry Pi; it does all the telephony you’d expect, but it’s a smart-ish phone, not a complete smart phone, which made some of you sad. In the year since the PiPhone was first built,... Continue reading

Let us know and I’ll add it to this post) is driving audio and eight strands of lights (plus a jolly twinkly star) from the same Raspberry Pi, so the two can be sequenced using some custom Python he’s written.

Follow the link, or watch this rather excellent video to see what’s going on. You’ll be using buttons in the browser to send Python instructions to the robots via their serial ports....
