It is assumed that this will be for educational perposes only, as the SOC dosn't have much grunt. But who knows what uses someone may find for this later on.
Weather Ballon: Using a R-Pi to monitor various things and take video from a weather baloon.
Augmented Reality: Take a camera feed and place objects onto it, and make it all interactive.
Car PC: Use a R-Pi to integrate a PC into your car.
Robotics: Integration into a robot of some kind. With the use of various sensors and controllers attached to GPIO this should be no issue.
Packet Radio Device: Like text messages for Ham radio operators.
GPS Device: Add a GPS module and create a low cost GPS device.
Forum member meltwater has begun a page at the wiki site so that the community can update as needed. It is still in it's infancy but with some help it will be great…http://elinux.org/RaspberryPiB.....rdProjects
I have put together an application that is provides a web front end to either a USB WebCam or Raspberry PI Cam. The application can be set to random mode and alarm mode. In order to use alarm mode and infra red sensor (PIR) should be connected to GPIO17. If movement is detected an image is taken and an email of the image is sent.
If the application is in random mode, random shots are taken throughout the day, you can define the start time and end time so no shots are taken outside the time, you can also define the frequency. Comments can also be added to the images. The layout of the screen is shown in github
The idea with the random feature is that you get a journal of your photos. These photos can also be emailed out. The logs of detection from the PIR sensor are also displayed on the screen.
This means that as well as using my Raspberry PI as a Youtube player attached to the TV it can also serve as an alarm system and photo journal.
The code can be found at https://github.com/emomonkey/RaspPISpyIntranet
In theory you should be able to install by running sudo python setup.py install. However I have not tested the install, it would require a spare Sdcard so I would be interested in feedback from the forum if the install runs.
Also you need to run the shell script gpioexp.sh in order that the pins can be written to
An alternative way to install it is from the github page which is the the long way and involves copying the files to RaspPISpyIntranet and install the python packages individuals.
The application needs to be run as sudo as the pins need supervisor access.
Look forward to hearing back with some feedback. I think it's need having a PI in my living room that doubles as an email alarm and photo journal. Hopefully someone else thinks the same.
You an airsofter by any chance?EricMiddleton wrote:I'm planning on making some sort of augmented reality system using a couple Raspberry Pi's. I'm thinking about putting a small touch screen and a camera on one and using it to identify and track objects. I might make the other one into a smart quadrocopter that can track objects from the air. Kind of like the Parrot AR drone, but made for serious usage and not gaming.

My ideal setup would be: bring books to her on a thumb drive. Hook up a big monitor to the hdmi,
Have one big button that would put the text on the screen. Continuing from the last session and going on to the next book. I'm looking into doing this myself, but I've a lot to learn and would appreciate some help and guidance (or a completed solution)
