Ambilight TV

I have been always amazed by Philips Ambilight TV. Unfortunately they were pretty expensive, and this is why I have looked for an easy cheap solution to be able to create the same user experience. This was my first Raspberry Pi project, and it's pretty simple and good for beginners. Everything is based on different materials I have found online, especially with the help of the guys of the raspbmc project (t ...

Raspberry Pi Bluetooth LE Controller for WS2812B (NeoPixels)

Bluetooth Low Energy (aka BLE/Bluetooth 4.0/Bluetooth Smart) is the most recent incarnation of Bluetooth technology developed by the Bluetooth SIG (the organization that maintains the specification). This communication protocol is designed for applications where data needs to be transferred in small amounts at relatively low speed while consuming low amounts of power (e.g., heart rate monitor, step counter, ...

Raspberry Pi 4x4x4 LED Cube

I've been fascinated with LED cubes for a while now, but haven't been able to bring myself to build an Arduino-based cube. They turn on quickly and nicely, yes, but writing the code is a horrible mess of bits and bytes. The Raspberry Pi's Python-based GPIO interface was much more appealing (and readable) to me, so I decided to build an LED cube that was based off a Raspberry Pi. An 8x8x8 cube was way too bi ...

Raspberry PI night vision goggles.

Very simple and cheap Infra-Red night vision googles, using a model A raspberry pi, a NOIR camera and Quanum FPV Goggles. For a while now I have been playing with Multicopters, and whilst I prefer to make the models myself and fly them properly with a transmitter, I couldn’t help being interested in First person View (FPV) so I got a camera and transmitter and a small monitor. My first attempt didn’t end we ...

A Raspberry Pi-based Truly Random Number Generator

Random numbers are essential for all kinds of things, especially cryptography. Computers, however, can only produce pseudorandom numbers, which can be "guessed" by using sophisticated software. Truly random numbers are hard to come by. Luckily, with a few wires and a Ras Pi, one can create a lot of random numbers very quickly. For this project you will need: 1x Raspberry Pi 3x Breadboard wires And, for the ...

Easy Node.JS + WebSockets LED Controller for Raspberry Pi

Hi, in this instructable, I'll show you how to create a lightweight and incredibly responsive web server with WebSockets. I'll use it to control a LED using an Arduino but the concept can be applied to many other projects. Since this project does not use any on-board peripherals, it will work with just about any computer, but running it on a low power machine like the Raspberry PI makes sense for continuous ...

IoT Motion Controlled Servos

Secure and reliable real time data streaming is essential for IoT. I've seen plenty of demonstrations involving applications or "push button here, LED on over there" type hardware, but a friend and I wanted to make something that was more interactive... a way to almost feel the data stream as you manipulate it. So, we decided to build a motion controlled "thing" that mimics your hand movements and displays ...

LED candle with Raspberry Pi

The General Purpose Input/Output pins (GPIO) give you power to interact with the real world using your Raspberry Pi. This project will get you comfortable with using the GPIO pins, which will form the backbone of the final project. Traditionally the ‘Hello World’ program for electronics prototyping is simply turning a light on and off. We’re going to go one better than that here though, by simulating candle ...
