Internet of Things (IoT) Extension Lead

Hi Makers! Intro It's about time I shared this one with you all. This project has been going so long, you would not believe. I started this before our Hack Space existed [2011 ish?], and has continued to be in a transient 'not finished, might finish, needs improvement' state forever. This Instructable will hopefully inspire you to go and do something similar with your own take on what this idea aims to acco ...

USB Powered Hub Hack For Raspberry Pi External Harddrive

Step 1: Intro Hi I recently got a Raspberry Pi to use as a HTPC running Raspmc. But came into problems where the Rpi does not provide enough bus power on its USB ports to power a 2.5" external harddrive. So I decided to add a external 5v power supply to provide power to a hub with its own switch. I am using the USB port on the TV to power the Rpi and a 5v 1000mA to supply the hub with the harddrive attached ...

Testing & Setting the USB current limiter on the Raspberry Pi B+

One of the features of the new Raspberry Pi B+ is improved power handling – particularly round the USB interfaces. There is a device connected to the power to the USB ports that is quite clever – it controls the power and “soft starts” the peripherals plugged in. This helps to reduce any brown-outs on the main Pi supply, so reducing the chance of the Pi rebooting when you plug in a USB peripheral with the P ...

Group 9 – Prototype I Final Report: Remote Piano Pedal Controller

Introduction: As a group, we feel that everyone should be able to enjoy the things they love to do despite their limitations. Our project is designed to enable people who are unable to use their legs to operate the pedals of a piano and to be able to do so by simply attaching a motion sensor to any moving part of their body. Depending on how they move, the motion sensor will send a signal to the Arduino /mi ...

Raspberry Pi on a Portable B&W CRT

Last week at hacklab.to, my friend Igor brought in a Panasonic TR-1030P. This is a black and white CRT, with an astonishingly small 35mm (1.37") screen diagonal, circa 1984. A great find for $5 at Value Village. A good set of teardown pictures can be found here. Designed to receive NTSC over VHF and UHF, this television is no longer relevant where we live since August 31 2011, when Canada stopped broadcasti ...

Control Your Pi with Webiopi

Webiopi is a fantastic framework for controlling your RPi over the web. I found it a steep learning curve, but once you’ve got head around a few ideas it provides a very powerful way of bringing your RPi to life. I am primarily using it to gather data from sensors on my RPi and graph the output on a web page. I thought I’d publish what I’d done so that others can use the things I’ve found out. Installation ...

Raspberry Pi chats to Arduino

Well I got the Pi working, so what next? After a tiny amount of pondering I decided to get it chatting to an Arduino using the serial interface. I'll try and note down everything relevant so this'll be as much a guide to doing it as a recording of what I did! Before proceeding If you have a Pi, you might ask why on earth I'd do this - surely the Raspberry Pi is so awesome, the Arduino is just wasting space? ...
