I'm not a fan of Ikea. In fact, it's a place I usually try to avoid, until I discovered that you can hack it's ultra-cheap tables into retro video game systems! You know the one I mean: PIK3A: The Raspberry Pi 3 IKEA Retro Gaming Table.   You guys have been busy making your own versions, which I'm thrilled to be reading about. Keep those photos and top tips coming.   But in the meantime, meet PIK3A Mark II. Hackin' the LACK This is, in many respects, the same build as the PIK3A Mk ...

I would like to purchase the Raspberry Pi3 and I would like to run Kodi on it. I understand that there is an sd card that goes into the Pi with Kodi on it. Can anyone advise me where I can purchase it and how do I apply it to the Pi3. Kindly help if you can. Many Thanks Norman ...
Raspberry Pi 3 temperature and cooling testing :   Part 1 initial tests. Part 2 with a HAT tests. Part 3 with Fan Speed Control. (Still to come)       The BeagleBoard  has capes, the The specified item was not found.  has Shields but the Raspberry Pi has HATS (Hardware Attached on Top) - an add-on board to provide additional functionality but which can closely cover the SOC chip and restrict the cooling airflow. There are many of these available some of which y ...
I was using a project by Mike Davis (A Raspberry Pi Data Logger for about $25 (Temperature Probe and ThingSpeak).. All is working fine for one sensor but I have 3 and am unable to figure out a loop to get it to upload all three. I can see all three sensors in the /devices/ directory. Any help would be appreciated.   Here is code from Mike I'm using: import os   import glob   import time   import sys   import datetime   import urllib2       base ...
Recently we built a Plex Media Server using the Raspberry Pi 2, at the time the Raspberry Pi 2 was the most powerful board in the Raspberry Pi range. But on February 29th 2016 the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced their latest board, the Raspberry Pi 3.   Photo Credit - Raspberry Pi Foundation Technical Specifications Broadcom Quad Core 64bit CPU 1.2GHz  (BCM2837 SoC) Broadcom BCM43438 WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity 1GB RAM VideoCore IV GPU and 3D now clocked at 400MHz and 300M ...
Raspberry Pi 3 temperature and cooling testing :   Part 1 Inital tests Part 2 with a HAT tests. Part 3 with Fan Speed Control. (Still to come)       This experiment started out after discussions following a post by shabaz   here Raspberry Pi 3 Cooling / Heat Sink Ideas The tests were carried out with the new RPi 3 as it was found to get hot under heavy load, I may repeat the tests at a later date with the RPi 2 for comparisons. For the tests I created a simp ...

Ras Pi Gaming Table

Posted by mconners Top Member Mar 8, 2016
This will be my interpretation of the Ras Pi gaming table as highlighted here PIK3A: The Raspberry Pi 3 IKEA Retro Gaming Table posted by spannerspencer.   I have most of the parts on hand, but I am still waiting for a key component, the screen. I had one, I thought, but it turned out to be inoperative.   So I ordered one from ebay and expect to have it pretty soon.   I'm pretty much sticking to the plan as described, with a few minor changes.     There is what I h ...
Note: This is part 1 of a 2-part post. For part 2, click here: Raspberry Pi 3 Dynamic Current Consumption, Power and Temperature Tests To see an implementation using a heat pipe, see the Outdoor Pi 3 Image Recognition Security Camera project (aka HAL-CAM 9001) Inspired by Christopher's cstanton  Raspberry Pi Operating Temperature report (with thermal photos from Gareth Halfacree) regarding the heat dissipated by the Broadcom chip on the Raspberry Pi 3, and the discussion with bwelsby w ...
