Recently MathWorks had run Simulink Student challenge where in users were asked to submit their projects in which they had used Simulink to provide real-world solutions and they could win up to 1000 dollars. Even though this project did not place inside top 3 in this challenge, it was one of my favorites -     They are using a Raspberry pi as the brain for the control system and the camera board to get the actual position of the ball which can then be used in feedback control.

Stormtrooper Pi Radio

Posted by ninjatrent Jan 19, 2018
Stormtrooper Pi Radio Project Awhile back I purchased this talking First Order Stormtrooper Toy. Originally, the toy would play a few different recorded prases and sound effects. While this toy had a lot of neat features, wouldn't it be fun to hack this toy.   Stormtrooper Teardown First we need to see what is inside. Look Ben, there's screws! Removal of the battery cover we find some AA batteries. There is a three position power switch at the base of the neck. In order to gain ...
As I spoke to the team behind the Flick range of gesture sensing boards, a certain phrase kept coming up: "keyboard and mouse." These venerable input devices have been around longer than many of us have been alive, and it's hard to deny that they get the job done. But the Flick team are part of a larger movement that wants to expand how we control our computing devices, in their case through gestures. "We’re essentially adding another way that you can control your Raspberry Pi or single-bo ...
Hi,   So this will be my first blog,  I just wanted to share a project I created for the Exploring Cellular IoT with the Hologram Nova and RaspberryPi contest on Hackster.io site.  The project was suppose to be a Trail camera with a cellular connection, but I would be more useful in a setting where it could be plugged in instead of using a battery. Something like a camp with power but no internet. When I proposed the idea, I didn't realize the raspberry pi zero didn't have any ...

HDMIPi Goes Metal

Posted by stmorgan Jan 7, 2018
This post describes a project to place an HDMIPi display monitor into into an aluminum enclosure.  Some information concerning the HDMIPi's pushbutton switches is discussed that may be of interest to individuals looking to "hack" the switches.   Motivation   The HDMIPi is a small, lightweight 9-inch HD display kit that allows the integration of certain Raspberry Pi models into the HDMIPi case.  The device is very much in the spirit of the Raspberry Pi itself and other Raspb ...
SmartiPi NoIR Grid Eye Thermal Camera     Infrared From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infrared          Infrared radiation is electromagnetic radiation (EMR) with longer wavelengths than those of visible light, and is therefore invisible to the human eye. Most of the thermal radiation emitted by objects near room temperature is infrared.        Infrared was discovered in 1800 by as ...
