Modelling a Raspberry Pi case – from Cardboard

2. Light Pipes This is a very common technique used in design - where for economy you want the lights (LEDs) mounted on a circuit board, but the board is positioned away from the case or user-interface. By taking a piece of clear plastic, one can 'bounce' the light along it (because of refraction) over some distance. Here I will show you how to do this for yourself. Experiement as you go - you might see thi ...

Raspberry Pi: Launch Python script on startup

As I've been working on my own Pi projects, I've been discovering many little tricks and tips by scouring various websites and assembling information, testing and optimizing. So, here is another one of my "meat-and-potatoes" Raspberry Pi Instructables. This Instructable will show you how to setup your Raspberry Pi to automatically launch a Python script upon startup. First of all, I know this is a lame pict ...

Autonomous, Cardboard, Rasberry Pi Controlled QuadCopter

Step 1: Materials Cardboard from the recycling bin,The sheet we we used was 32"x20" with a thickness off around 4.1mm. A large clean box should do. Motors from Hobby King, 4x + Propeller clamps, We used Turnigy D3530/14 1100KV Brushless Outrunner Motor at $14.56 each. Our motors also came with propeller clamps which allowed us to easily connect our propellers to the motors. Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC ...

Installing and Using Pidora OS on Raspberry Pi

WHAT  IS  RASPBERRY? Raspberry is a new (one year old), ultra small (credit card size) , and cheap (35USD), Linux computer. The CPU is an ARM processor at 700MHz with 256 Mb (type A) or 500Mb (typeB) of RAM. The flavors of Linux for Raspberry are Debian (Raspbian), Fedora (Pidora), RISC OS 5, Arch Linux ARM (derivate de Arch Linux). All in this article is dedicated to PIDORA. WHAT A RASPBERRY PI DOES NOT HA ...

Breadboard One | A typical Mixed Signal Circuit.

We designed Breadboard One as the first BitScope Ed project because it's a simple mixed signal circuit which explains the key elements of modern mixed signal systems. A Mixed Signal Circuit is one which has both analog and digital components. In analog circuits the currents and voltages vary continously whereas in a digital circuits they switch between discrete values (high and low) to represent logical or ...

Raspberry Pi – single board Linux computer

I have been working with the Raspberry Pi for a few months and have had a great time experimenting.I plan on documenting some of the things that I have been able to do and observations that I have made. My latest project is to use the Pi to read temperature from multiple DS18B20 sensors and graph the results - my notes are here I have also been working on a Temperature / Humidity grapher - notes re here: ht ...

Electronic Circuit Designing: Multitasking with Circuits (Part 4)

Step: 8) Find reusable modules from the circuit diagram   Whenever we do hardware designing, the first rule is to make it in modules that can be reusable. The modules that we make for this particular project may come useful in another project and hence reduce the development time for that project. Even if a module is in use and at the same time found to be useful in another project, we can build another cop ...
