This is something I’ve been meaning to try for myself in some of the ruined iron-age villages up on the moors in Cornwall and Devon one summer. Richard Hayler and his son learned about kite mapping at last year’s EMF festival, where the younger Hayler won the workshop competition. The prize? Two kite kits. Richard... Continue reading
We’ve just spotted a third-party add-on for your Pi and Camera Board which we think you’ll find really useful.   The ribbon cable that comes with the Raspberry Pi Camera Module is, for reasons of signal integrity, not very long. In most cases, that doesn’t present a problem. But if you’re wanting to take pictures of something... Continue reading
Last Friday morning I got up at an unfamiliar hour to board a train to Leicester, where BBC Stargazing were broadcasting a special live show to coincide with the partial solar eclipse over the UK. Regular readers will have seen Dave Akerman write here last week of his plans to launch two Model A+ Pis... Continue reading
Edited to add: Naturebytes’ website is now up and running at http://naturebytes.org/. You can sign up to their newsletter for updates. Start-up Naturebytes hopes their 3D printed Raspberry Pi camera trap (a camera triggered by the presence of animals) will be the beginning of a very special community of makers. Supported by the Raspberry Pi... Continue reading
Helen: Today we’re delighted to have a guest post from 17-year-old student Arne Baeyens, aka Robotanicus, who has form in designing prize-winning robots. His latest, designed for the line-following challenge of a local competition, is rather impressive. Over to Arne… Two months ago, the 24th of May, I participated in the RoboCup Junior competition Flanders,... Continue reading
Doing the social media stuff that I do, I see a lot of cat-related stuff; your cute cat thing has to be pretty darn good to impress me. MouseAir cuts it. I came across MouseAir in Raspberry Pi’s Google+ community, where project author John Shovic of SwitchDoc Labs has been posting regular updates. John’s cat, Panther, enjoys... Continue reading
Liz: Gordon Hollingworth, our Director of Software, has been pointing the camera board at things, looking at dots on a screen, and cackling a lot over the last couple of weeks. We asked him what he was doing, so he wrote this for me. Thanks Gordon! The Raspberry Pi is based on a BCM2835 System... Continue reading
A couple of books projects for you today. One is simple, practical and of great use to the visually-impaired. The other is over-complicated, and a little bit nuts; nonetheless, we think it’s rather wonderful; and actually kind of useful if you’ve got a lot of patience. We’ll start with the simple and practical one first:... Continue reading
Even though Carrie Anne Philbin is working here at Pi Towers now, she’s still carrying on with the Geek Gurl Diaries YouTube channel that she set up before she joined us – for which we’re all profoundly grateful, because her videos are some of the best tutorials we’ve seen. Here’s the latest from Carrie Anne:... Continue reading
Liz: you’ll notice that this post has no pictures or video. That’s because we’d like you to make some for us, using the new camera mode. Take some 90fps video using our camera board and the information below, slow it down to 30fps and send us a link: if yours is particularly splendid, we’ll feature... Continue reading
