Hi, my name is Jason. I am 14 years old and live in Oklahoma. I use my raspberry pi for a program I am currently writing that uses a U.S.B  webcam  and tracking technology to follow the motion of objects such as my hand and then have it be a mouse to control a screen.  As of now, I am fairly new to programing so my code is slow and intensive on the Pi. Although it works, it is slow and not always reliable. My revision in code is making it faster but more intense on the system itse ...
Want to build this project? View Parts   A couple weeks ago my Dad mentioned to me it would be cool if advent candles automatically lit themselves according to the date.  (One candle is lit starting the 4th Sunday before Christmas with an additional candle being lit for each of following Sundays).  I thought, hey, that sounds like an interesting project, so why not build it.  I didn't want to bother with the complexity and danger of lighting real candles, so I started se ...
The Pi Store screenshot   The Raspberry Pi Foundation, in conjunction with IndieCity and Velocix, has finally launched their app store by overwhelming demand from developers using the popular single-board computer. The store is essentially a one-stop-shopping area for free and paid-for apps, games, tools and tutorials that developers (from beginners to advanced users) can share with others in the Pi community. According to the Raspberry Pi press-release, the store runs as an X-application ...
Want to build this project? View Parts     Goal To play a game on the raspberry pi using an Xbox controller. Introduction Xbox 360 controllers use a standard USB interface, and since the raspberry pi has two USB ports, I wanted to hook up an Xbox controller and play a game with it.  There are a couple of other projects out there that hook controllers up to the raspberry pi and play games: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1754 http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/tag/gam ...
You've probably seen time lapse movies of clouds moving through the sky, or flowers opening.  Maybe people walking in the street, boats crossing the bay, or snails eating ivy.   I'm already using my 256 MB R-Pi as a video game play time for my boys.  Now it's time to move on!   My interest in time-lapse comes from my dad, who built many mechanical devices to slice time into long segments, turn on and off growing lights, picture taking lights, and carefully controlled 16mm m ...

Here is a 3D view of my SweetiePie board, which was been sent out for fab last week. The purpose of this device is to interface my Raspberry Pi to an Atrix 4G Evo lapdock, which I acquired on Ebay for about $60.  The top surface connectors, for micro-USB and HDMI type D, are laid out to precisely fit in the Evo lapdock space intended for the smart phone.  The bottom surface connectors, for micro-USB and HDMI type A, will have very short cables connecting the SweetiePie to my Raspberry ...
We have a little terrier (I call her the domestic terrorist who is really attached to me.  I do not know that happened as Sydney is my wife's dog.  Any way it's a done deal.  Little Sydney does not like me to leave the house without her, but each time she tends to wander off.  Last week when it happened I started to go collect her and bring her home.  Whoops!  I found the hard way (ouch) that when I slip on a patch of mud and land on my head, it is just another pro ...
I am sure I am not the first to do this and I can assure you I am not a developer who could even write th code to do this. However, I am using my Pi with software written for Debain, that allows my Pi to become a repeater for my HAM radio in the DIgital world (D-STAR). The software is in two parts. First there is the gareway software, IRCDDBGATEWAY, and th second ir the repeater software, PCCONTROLLER. The  gateway software provides a path to the internet for the digital transmissions passe ...
Want to build this project? View Parts   Another entry to the "Double the Memory Challenge"  OpenMediaVault is a wonderful web interface to create and manage a NAS (Network attached storage). Getting OpenMediaVault installed on Raspbian (armhf) requires a little bit of effort, as there is no official packages from OMV. Some users however, have ported the majority of the packages, and I'll share with you how to get them installed. Package Sources First, you need to elevate your priv ...

Want to build this project? View Parts   I finally got a got a chance a couple weeks ago to experiment with my Alamode from Wyolum.  It's an The specified item was not found.-compatible board with an ATMega328 that sits on top of the Raspberry Pi.  It has has headers for Arduino shields and also features a real-time clock and microSD card reader: The setup for the Alamode on the Pi is pretty simple when following Wyolum's Getting started guide.  Essentially, you'll need ...
I've been working with the DHIS software for some time (DHIS2.org).  It is designed for use in developing countries to collect health data.  It is browser based software which has been optimized for low bandwidth and poor connections. The Raspberry Pi makes a good, low cost data entry and reporting terminal. I used the standard Raspbian Debian distribution and added the Chromium browser from the repositories.  I also added Abiword and Gnumeric for work processing and spreadshee ...

I'm using my Raspberry Pi to run a custom pinball machine.  The size and power requirements are great for my application.  I'm using a framework written in Python to process the pinball game rules, and the RPi is connected via USB to a controller board that is the interface to the machine's switches, solenoids, and lamps. ...
I love my raspberry pi! ...
