Layer by Layer – Adafruit Joy Bonnet for Raspberry Pi

I’m working on a new retropie project that uses the Raspberry Pi Zero W and the new Adafruit Joy Bonnet. Before I can design an enclosure for this project, I need to 3D model the PCB + components! Using EagleCAD and Fusion 360, I exported a DFX, which is a drawing of the footprints of each component, and import that into Fusion 360. This makes modeling a whole lot easier!... Read more

CCTV Camera with Raspberry Pi 2 and motionEyeOS #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

From Raspberry Pi Spy: As I progressed with my original security camera project I realised that I was making slow progress and I would struggle to complete the software in a sensible time-frame. So I decided to simplify everything. A lot. I settled on motionEyeOS as the basis of my system and install just the hardware I needed. If in the future I wanted to add anything else I could...

New Learning Resources from the Raspberry Pi Foundation: GUIs! Theremin! Poo! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

One of Laura‘s pet projects is GUI Zero, a wrapper for GUI library tkinter that has been designed to make it easier for kids (and, frankly, adults) to use! She’s now written a series of worksheets for the Foundation that use GUI Zero to create simple GUI interfaces. Take a look here. Here’s an interesting, and slightly disgusting, resource that will likely appeal to all kids who giggle whenever poo... Read more

Grow Orchids in a Raspberry Pi NodeRED Terrarium #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Incredible project from Dendroboard via raspberry pi pod: I wanted to build a high-tech terrarium, so I opted to do most of the technical system myself with a lot of help from my brother, an electrician. Together we designed an industrial style electrical/computer setup that can run the terrarium in two different modes, either controlled by a Raspberry PI, or by a set of timers. Each device can individually switch... Read more
