Element14 Board

Posted by sublockdown Jan 28, 2014
So I ordered a Canakit Raspberry Pi Ultimate Starter kit, and it finally arrived today. The board in it, was ordered from element14. Funny thing is, it was just yesterday I found out about you guys. Coincidence? Who knows. ...
Web port-over for future Raspbian release (via RPF) People have used the Raspberry Pi single-board computer for some interesting projects over the years since it was introduced as a main-stream learning tool back in 2012. Some of the more notable projects to come forth since then include the Black Stripes V-Plotter (transforms color photos into massive B&W murals), Scott Garner’s ‘Beet Box’ (turns beets into a drum machine) and Stuart Johnson’s Rotary VOIP Phone ...
Trying to come up with a good playlist for a party can be a real challenge.  Are the guests going to be more into Metallica or Rise Against? Is everybody going to be bored when the third Tool song comes on in a row, or are they feeling it?   Well, what if the guests could vote American Idol style for the next song that they want to hear?  This way the music of the party could be set by the guests and match their current mood. Everyone would be given the choice between three songs ...

Free Food Camera

Posted by oneleggedredcow Top Member Jan 13, 2014
At work, there always seem to be one table where the free food is placed.  The leftovers from catered meals, extra cookies that someone had laying around, or other various goodies are placed here for the lucky first couple of people who walk by to eat.  If you don’t come fast enough, there will be no food left for you.   What if you had a way to detect when new food appeared, without walking over to the table> Then (in theory at least) you would never miss any food!  ...
With thanks to Element 14 I have been given the opportunity to write up on the Raspberry Pi XBMC for the Australian New Years Party Pack. With increasing opposition to my wife that I sit on the computer too long for some time I was spurred to create a way to sit in the family room with her company. I had considered the option of a Media centre for a couple of weeks before the Element14 offer appeared, just in the nick of time.   The most important item to consider was to research the pr ...

Raspberry Robosapian

Posted by emotep Jan 10, 2014
After building 1.0, and thumping the inz n outs using raw materials, I'm finding highjacking the Robosapien an easy thing to do. Here are some pics of the prototype rigging. The lobotomy is just an infrared interface, so he has what equates to a spinal tap, sending the same commands you could send from the remote control. The RPI is already driving( thanks to Gbot-1.0 software development), all I had to do was change the throttle controls to 'walk-forward, walk back' ect. The only pro ...
I grabbed one of the first RPI's just as the model B became available, Now it's powering my own rover! There are some challenges with video, but overall it's a fun build and is still getting better every day. Gbot  has 4 cameras total, one mounted on a Dream cheeky missile launcher turret for 270 degree view, One mounted on the nose( shown in lower images) and 2 in the Xbox Kinect; one color and one IR. If you don't already know, the Kinect delivers grayscale 3D(depth) via infrared, whic ...
