Arduino / Raspberry Pi Internet Radio

This is a project for Arduino and Raspberry Pi to make an Internet Radio, aimed at intermediate skill level. Some familiarity with Linux usage will be beneficial (or access to someone who can help out if required). Raspberry Pi runs mpd music player daemon to receive and decode the internet radio stream. ALSA running on the Raspberry Pi provides the sound through either the Jack Socket or the HDMI output. A ...

Ultrasonic Distance Measurement Using Python – Part 1

LEDs, buzzers and switches are the most common items people attempt to interface to their Raspberry Pi’s. Something I found in eBay that is a little bit different is an ultrasonic measurement module. This allows you to measure the distance to the nearest wall or solid object. The modules are easy to buy, cheap and relatively straight forward to interface to the GPIO header. So here is some information on my ...

Twitter to Teletype

The Museum of Computing in Swindon has a working Teletype and a desire to get it to print out tweets as part of a display in the museum. Since the Swindon Hackspace is based in the museum it was a perfect project for hackspace members. Current Loop Interface The teletype uses a current loop interface to communicate with other (teletype) devices. The current loop interface is similar to a standard RS232 seri ...

Simple and intuitive web interface for your Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is an amazing 35 dollars mini-computer. It allows you to do everything you could do with a regular Linux computer (Connecting to the internet, watching videos, launching applications, ...) but also to interact with the world surrounding it, just like an Arduino. That's why I qualify it as a mix between a computer and a micro-controller. That's also why I chose it for this project. I'm going ...

Lego + Sugru Panel Mount Connectors (with RetroPie case as example)

The motivation for this project came when I combined my Raspberry Pi voice-controlled electrical outlets with a RetroPie. Due to the number of peripherals and cables involved (a powered USB hub, microphone, two USB controllers, breadboard, wireless remote, plus the normal HDMI and power cables for the Pi), this led to a pretty tangled mess of wires that didn't exactly look great sitting in the TV cabinet. S ...
