Raspberry Pi Powered Lego Car

Two things have happened recently that have contributed to my tinkering hobby. Firstly - My Raspberry Pi arrived after a long (but worth it) wait. Secondly - My two girls (8 and 5) have got in to Lego and so slowly but surely I've been bringing down old Lego that I had when I was a kid, got stored in my parent's loft when I grew up and then got transferred to my loft when my parents had a general chuck out. ...

Tank Day 23: Range and Bearing

Step 1: Choose Sensors Two sensors were chosen for the Raspberry Tank’s first foray into detecting its environment: An ultrasound rangefinder (SRF02) and a 3-axis compass (CMPS10), both ordered from robot-electronics.co.uk. Beyond their I2C interface, these devices were chosen largely for cost reasons, though they should both be fine for the job they will have to do on the tank. Step 2: GPIO Breakout! Way b ...

He likes gaming and computers, so this made sense. I made an identical version for my other nephews that is stuck in a Raspberry Pi case. Why not make it portable? There are a lot of projects out there with people making portable game syst ...

Raspberry Pi Playstation Mod

I've always been a gamer so but was more a C64 person back in the day so we never really had a console as a kid. I always loved popping around to friends and playing things such as Mario Kart as well as a host of other games. Getting nostalgic i started to look into emulators and being into modding lately this seemed like a perfect fit for a raspberry pi. I planned on doing a game boy case project but had a ...

How to make a Raspberry Pi Arcade with no programming

Setting up a Raspberry Pi arcade is actually really easy, thanks to a Linux distribution called RetroPie. You don't need to do any programming or setup, just install the image on an SD card. This will allow you to use the arcade with a keyboard right off the bat. If you want to build a simple control panel with buttons and joysticks, you'll need a few things (but it's still not hard). The video above shows ...

These use a Raspberry Pi computer, flat-screen monitor or TV, and arcade controls mounted inside an old wooden coffee table, and are simple to make, pro ...
