Introduction In a previous blog, there was a project for complete beginners, to draw a tree with zero programming experience required. In this blog post, we go 3D. Again, no programming experience is needed to follow this project and extend it to draw different 3D objects. We will also rotate objects.   Designing the Tree First off, a tree was sketched on graph paper. It was decided that the origin (0,0) point would be at the bottom of the tree, so that the base of the tree trunk has co- ...
Music has always been driven forward in part by the technology used to make it. The piano combined the best features of the harpsichord and clavichord to help concert musicians; the electric guitar made performing and recording different forms of blues, jazz, and rock music possible; and electronic drum machines both facilitated songwriting and spawned entire genres of music in themselves. The musical collective Sonic Robots were inspired by one of the most famous electronic instruments of all t ...

The Secret Life of the Pi

Posted by shabaz Top Member Jul 15, 2017
Introduction If you’ve ever wondered how the Pi functions internally, the answer will really depend on how deep you want to examine it. Each part on the circuit board has documentation, sometimes running to thousands of pages. I wanted to explore it at a higher level, but still detailed enough to begin to understand how the Pi functions when computer code is executed. The diagrams and explanations here are not 100% accurate (and the Pi probably does not have little robots inside it as show ...
Introduction I’m lucky to know lots of very creative and thoughtful people here at Element14, and in my everyday work and play. I spend as much time with them as possible because I learn so much.   If I throw out a problem at people I’ll inevitably get back some possible solutions, and I then use some engineering experience to convert it into a physical project. Engineers love to problem-solve, and they love to create things. If you’re lucky enough to be able to come up w ...
Ive moved into a new house and came across a sense hat for the raspberry pi which made me remember a little project that I was working on, its basically a html based color chooser which updates the selected colour on the sense hat so I thought I'd share the scripts etc.. incase anybody finds them helpful / useful.       To start with I was running lighttpd on the Raspberry Pi which is a lightweight webserver, very simple to use and just requires a small modification to its conf ...
Introduction Enabling Wireless (WiFi) Connecting Input/Output (I/O) Devices to the Expansion Header Quick Linux Reference Guide Powering off the Pi   Introduction This blog post contains some miscellaneous topics that are handy when working with the Pi. It covers how to enable the wireless capability on the Pi, how to get started attaching your own circuits to the Pi, and a command line guide.   Use this blog post as a quick reference to do these ‘thingsR ...
Introduction Using the Shell (Command Prompt or Terminal) Simplifying access to the Pi with SSH Transferring Files with PuTTY Securing the Pi Enabling the root user account (Superuser) Remote Desktop (Accessing your Pi from a PC) Using a Serial Console Navigating in the Shell (command prompt) Next Steps   Introduction This blog post has a collection of steps or ‘things’ that can be done with the Pi in order to be able to access it flexibly ...
Introduction What do I do with the Circuit Board? Installing Raspbian Powering it off Safely Next Steps   Introduction This blog post contains information on some of the important steps worth taking if you've purchased a Pi and are getting ready to set it up all ready for creating projects. It covers the practical points up to installing a fresh copy of Raspbian.   The key steps are listed and all the links to click on for more information on topics.   The b ...
Music has always been driven forward in part by the technology used to make it. The piano combined the best features of the harpsichord and clavichord to help concert musicians; the electric guitar made performing and recording different forms of blues, jazz, and rock music possible; and electronic drum machines both facilitated songwriting and spawned entire genres of music in themselves. Toby Hendricks, an electronic musician who records and performs as otem rellik, became dissatisfied with th ...
This post features videos that I published to my YouTube channel in the series "IOT with Raspberry Pi ". This basically contains 4 videos around raspberry pi that show how to use Raspberry Pi as an IOT device. It starts from interfacing sensor to publishing the sensor data to cloud server using protocols like REST or MQTT. For the entire project I have used JAVA and on top of that used various libraries for specific tasks like Pi4J, Unirest, Eclipse PAHO etc (Links provided below). If you have w ...
Microsoft was able to squeeze their deep-learning algorithms onto an RPi 3 in order to bring intelligence to small devices.   Love it or fear it, AI is advancing, and it’s coming to small/portable electronic devices thanks to advanced developments made by Microsoft. The software giant was recently successful at loading their deep-learning algorithms onto a Raspberry Pi 3 SBC. The advancement will obviously be a boon for anything, and everything IoT, which is on track to take the world ...
