On my way to building many types of projects using Raspberries (RasPi, and sometimes Arduino), there is always something which used to stop me: it is the need to do soldering of some of the components. For some Jedi Masters, soldering electronic cards may be a piece of cake, but believe me, for a software … Continue reading On my way to soldering supremacy?
As a present for the holidays, I decided to try to turn my son, who is fan of retrogaming, into a raspberrypi fan. I bought him a GPI case that I completed with one of my Pi Zero W (I have plenty of them since I love this small multipurpose, monotask piece of gem). The … Continue reading Pi-based retrogaming with the GPI case
You might remember that I explained some times ago how I turned a Pi-zero with an e-paper screen into a fridge magnet. The idea was to take advantage of the permanent e-paper screen (a 2", 212x104 pixel screen by Pimoroni) to display weather forecast and tide information, refreshed twice a day. The system is working … Continue reading Pi-based info center for the family kitchen
For once a break in my raspberry diet: a little project based on Arduino! So far, my pleasure was to build raspberry pi-based project: an SMS gateways, a weather & tide fridge magnet, an interactive info kiosk, a robot arm (still unfinished), a cat monitoring system, a schizo-media center, etc. A friend of mine noted that while … Continue reading A motion detector for my cat
Hello yall! Remember when I described my pi-based weather and forecast display fridge magnet ? I used for that a Raspberry Pi-Zero and an e-ink screen to display the info fetched from Yahoo weather server. A fine little project, that turned into a useful gadget in my kitchen as every morning I got used to … Continue reading A weather and tide info display fridge magnet
Hello. I am happy to present for the first time a project which has kept me busy for some weeks now: controlling a robot arm with a Raspberry. The ultimate goal might not be clear for the moment, but today's objective is clear: build a robot arm with servo-motors, and develop a program on a … Continue reading A robot arm controlled by Raspberry
