I recently had an opportunity to check out the Embedded Pi board. I had observed an advertisement when visiting Element 14 one morning and I became intrigued enough to investigate the board. While it is advertised as a “Triple Play Platform” I came away with the idea that it was truly more of a double play.     The board has several modes which are jumper selectable:     1) STM32 (which is built in) -> Arduino shield (You supply the shield) 2) Ras-Pi (you supp ...
Goal To create a XBMC plugin that works with the Raspberry Pi. Prerequisites Install XBMC on the Raspberry Pi  (Raspbmc is a popular option) Code Creating a plugin (or add on) for XBMC isn’t hard, but it does require a directory and a couple of files.   The first thing that we are going to do is create a directory to store our new plugin in. This directory needs to be created in:   /home/pi/.xbmc/addon   And we are going to call our directory:   plugin.video.hell ...

Wireless Pi

Posted by howroyd Jun 18, 2013
Just thought I would share this with anyone interested. It's just one small step towards my fuel cell powered UAV.     Main points in this post are: Completely wireless pi running with a 4.3" screen Max voltage anywhere is 5v (improvement over Ben Hecks awesome games console)   See attached photos!   How did I do it? Bought a cheap 4.3" TFT screen here Took it out of the external case Desoldered V+ cable and resoldered it downwind of the 5v regulator Desoldered the ...

Rpi development box

Posted by tabarus12 Jun 13, 2013
Hi everyone, this is my Raspberry pi development box that I pleced together to do all my Rpi projects. The box is a standard 5 to 24 division utility box that you can get a any home depo for 7 bucks.     Put the holes for the Rpi and install the Rpi inside with some minos circuitry for GPIO connections and a fan(Very important) to cool everithing down and you have the perfect chassy for a project box.   FN GPIO# PIN# GPIO# FN SDA GPIO2 17 18 GPIO14 TXD SCL GPIO3 15 16 GP ...
Lego and Raspberry Pi have come together again. First there was the University of Southampton and now this fantastic project by the University of Glasgow's School of Computing Science. Using 56 Raspberry Pi boards, their team have managed to create an affordable, working cloud computing infrastructure which is available to researchers and students of the faculty.   They have documented their adventures on a blog which contains images of the various incarnations of their project through t ...
This Thursday I was asked by element14 to test and review their new XBMC Solution and here it is!   The XBMC Solution is a kit that is designed to go with the Raspberry Pi to have a quick media center out of the box solution, it includes the following:   4GB Class 4 SD card with Raspbmc already on it. An Enthernet / Network Cable A HDMI Cable And an awesome wireless keyboard with built in touchpad! Instructions on how to set it up. You will also require: Raspberry Pi Model B ...
I attended the Sensors Expo in Chicago this afternoon.  One of the interesting devices I came across was RadioBlocks from Colorado Microdevices: The Colorado Micro Devices RadioBlock is an IEEE 802.15.4 FCC and CE certified wireless modem. It has a simple UART interface to make it easy to drop into your end product or to experiment with. A standard 100 mil pin spaced header means you can plug it right into many common boards: Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, it’s easy – No spe ...

Rpi Development box

Posted by tabarus12 Jun 1, 2013
Hey yall, I made a very inexpensive development box for my new Raspberry pi using 5 to 24 spaces organizer box I bought on Home depo and some buttons and battery holder so now my Rpi works on batteries prety cool.   Soon Ill be uploading a video of it explaining the use and the final demonstration.   The box is not yet ready because I need to install the GPIO port and connect the 5V fan to the Rpi for cooling but I tested it using and xbox intec 7" lcd screen and I have yet to run ou ...
