I received a Raspberry Pi2 from element14 and in this post i will share about my experience. Pi is really evolving and getting better with the time. Here are my experiences and observations. 1.BOOT TIME The first difference you will find when you will make the Pi2 boot is there are 4 raspberries on the top of screen instead of 1 raspberry on B+ representing the quardcore nature of the processor. The time taken by Pi 2 to boot is significantly lesser than the B+. 2. NOOBS If you have an ol ...

Sorry it's late.But I want to share some Pics here.Thanks element14Dave for appreciating me by sending this amazing thing.I am planning some interesting projects.I will post them soon. ...
  This technote covers setting up the Xfce desktop environment and session manager on a Raspberry Pi.  Folks who use a Linux distribution that make use of Xfce will find the Raspbian Xfce quite familiar.  I find that the look and feel of the desktop and the application menu organization is almost identical to that of Xubuntu which I use at home on Mini-ITX builds. The latest Raspbian image (2015-02-16) from http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ includes Openbox and LXDE as de ...
Intro In this blog post I will describe how I used the SPI interface of the Raspberry Pi 2 (and Raspberry Pi) to communicate with an Arduino board. Both the RPi and Arduino are connected to a nRF24L01+ chip to communicate with each other via the SPI interface. I will describe the practical details of the setup and will also share the sources which were used. The GPIO usage on the Raspberry Pi 2 is exactly the same as on the Raspberry Pi B(+). In practice it might be that some expansion boards ...
A few folks seem to have stumbled over network set up and using SSH in OpenELEC on Pi 2.  So this technote shares my experience in hopes that it might help others clear those hurdles.  Also, I added overclocking here because I found that it eliminated some video playback anomalies.   Topics covered in detail where I had put in effort beyond what I saw written up elsewhere:   Setting up wireless with or without a static IP address Setting up SSH service Overclocking for Hi ...
OpenELEC is a special Linux distribution because it runs a single specialized application: Kodi.  As a consequence of being understandably cautious, there are limitations to what a user can do in terms of administration in this environment.   For example, many of the Debian Linux utilities found in Raspbian are not present in OpenELEC.  Examples include the `dpkg*` and `apt*` families for system update and maintenance.  I don't mind those limitations at all.  However, o ...
A couple of months ago, while visiting the element14 community blog, I chanced upon the “Tis the Season for Inventing” contest announcement. The challenge was to submit innovative ideas using either the Arduino, Raspberry-Pi or BeagleBone Black platforms. I had just wrapped up my desktop CNC ShapeOko build and set it up at the Makers’ Asylum garage. This build used the Raspberry-Pi as the control computer for the CNC. It was hooked to the network via WiFi, and we could SSH in ...
