Concept layout...

Posted by couchie Mar 29, 2015
Ok, so I've attempted to do a layout/flowchart of the project I'm working on. I've printed it in PDF format hoping to make it more visible.   I don't know if this clears up my though process or not, but...   I'm thinking, use the Arduino to scan the RFID, pass the data to the RPi which will then transmit the data to the SQL DB on a centralized server. The server sends back which team the player is on to  the RPi. The RPi then tells the Arduino which color to illuminate the LED's ...
How amazing the things you can do with RPi2!     EDIT: Sorry I forgot to say the video was made by the guys of Possibly Unsafe ...
  In this blog post, I’m going to use a new Raspberry Pi 2 with Node.JS with Sock.JS and Angular.JS to create a chat page. We’ll start from the basics with a simple “Hello World” web page and slowly build upon that to create a powerful chat page.   Installing Node.JS The package of Node.JS that you will get if you run “apt-get install nodejs” is fairly out of date. So, in order to get something more recent, I built the latest from source.  In o ...

Hey guys I have been having great fun with my Raspberry Pi 2 with RetroPie installed to make a mini arcade machine. I started this project with no prior knowledge of the Raspberry Pi and very little Linux experience.   If anyone is interested in retro gaming please check out my very detailed step by step build log from a complete noob with all the links and videos you could need on my blog "MAN CAVE MODDER" Man Cave Modder: Build A Cheap Arcade Cabinet With A Raspberry Pi 2 & RetroPi ...
Intro In this blog post I will comment a bit on how I installed OpenELEC and Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi (2) using my ArchLinux based distro. I also performed some benchmarks and measured some start/boot times.   InstallationShort intro on installation It's really easy and fast to install these distros from scratch on any Linux OS (when you download the image). Alternatively you can also use NOOBS to install distros on the Raspberry Pi. Advantage over using NOOBS: you can perform the ins ...
Software Installation, Part I  Using NOOBS from Raspberry Pi       For most people, this looks like the old and tried method. But with the new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, there are problems out there. Lets take a look down memory lane and see what happens as we go down step by step.  (1)  Go to Downloads | Raspberry Pi. We see many options, but which one to choose? The very first thing to do is click on "More Info". Why not download? If you do what I suggest ...
Last friday the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B 1024MB, a credit card sized single-board computer, arrived from Element14. First a big thank you to Element14 for letting me RoadTest this product.   In this blog post I will share some unboxing pictures and my initial thoughts.     UnboxingBox contents and pictures The box contained 2 items:   The Raspberry Pi 2 (*) Quick start guide & safety instruction manual (*) In the pictures the anti static bag, in which the RPi2 came, wa ...
There have been many blog posts written about setting up a game emulator using the Raspberry Pi, however with the release of the Raspberry Pi 2 and its amazing speed I wanted to see just how much better game play is on the latest board. This quick run through shows how I created my system so I could play some of my favorite classic games and how I got around the minor issues I encountered. What you will need is the equipment listed below, a game emulator along with game files (ROMs). Please note ...

Introduction  Well it took an extra day or two, due to the weather, to get the parts in that I ordered, but they are finally here.  I decided that the first project I would try was OpenElec because I already have my old Pi set up with it and it will give me a good comparison.   For those of you who haven't tried OpenElec, or aren't familiar with it, I highly recommend you give it a shot.  It is a distribution of Linux that is streamlined to run Kodi (formerly XBMC).  W ...
