Whenever I’m on a Raspberry Pi, I love to use the Sense HAT. But I need some ideas for projects to make on it! I want big! I want something different! I want something worthy of sending into space! (I know I want doesn’t get, but I’m hoping it will today!) Please tweet or comment with ideas. Happy coding!
TinkerCAD, a model-designing software, is now out! Does anyone know how I can get hold of it, or if it is any match to my current favourite, Google SketchUp? Also, has anyone entered the Astro Pi case competition?
Hello everyone! I’ve just been messing around with Sonic Pi, an app that comes pre-downloaded on the Raspberry Pi, and thought I would give you some help on how to download it if you haven’t already got it. Here’s a link to the Sonic Pi website: http://www.sonic-pi.net. Enjoy!
I have got a little bit further with my car stereo system thanks to help with research from All About Code (@all_about_code) and Yasmin Bey (RPi_Yaz14) who are both on Twitter. If anyone has any ideas please tweet me or comment on this post.
Happy Easter everyone! Be sure to have a look at some Easter projects on Scratch here: https://scratch.mit.edu/studios/423433/ and maybe even make some projects of your own! Please comment or tweet me links to your projects if you’ve shared them. I am particularly keen to see projects on a Raspberry Pi or Arduino that use LEDs or different sensors, that have a connection with the physical world.
Hello everyone! I have a new idea sprouting in my mind for a car stereo – powered by a Raspberry Pi! I would need plenty of ideas for this, but before I can build it in to an old car or MOT failure, I would get the programming sorted out. I love Land Rovers, so I would like to build some features of the newer Land Rover tech into my system, such as Bluetooth and a touchscreen. Please help! I need your ideas for:
- A way to get a Raspberry Pi connected to Bluetooth Audio on an iPhone (RPi 3 or a dongle on a Pi 2)
- A website that sells cheap touchscreens for a Raspberry Pi
- Help on connecting a CD reader to a RPi
- In the future, possibly a project car that’s cheap, and doesn’t work (it doesn’t even need an engine – as long as it’s cheap)
This project is likely to take a couple of years and plenty of support 😀
Happy Easter weekend everyone! The weather’s beautiful, but you feel like staying inside and doing something geeky? Try mixing the two together, and make a Sense HAT temperature reader, to use indoors and out. All you need is:
- A Sense HAT
- A Raspberry Pi
Either you can type in the code below, have a look in more detail at the Raspberry Pi website here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/astro-pi-guide/sensors/temperature.md – or if you’re especially sneaky, you can just copy and paste the code into Python (if you look at the Raspberry Pi website, it goes through getting started with the Sense HAT LEDs).
