10 More Mind-Blowing, Skill-Building Raspberry Pi Projects #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
WIRED Design shared a new collection of “mind-blowing, skill-building Raspberry Pi projects,” several of which we have mentioned before here or on Twitter. Check out the overview of this collections well as a few of my favorites, Black Stripes (above — I’m a sucker for pen-plotter projects) and more photos and videos below. But all ten are worth checking out. Via Wired Design.
Raspberry Pi, the credit-card sized, $35 Linux computer, has been on the market for under a year, but excited hackers are using the platform for dozens of new, cool projects and accessory products every month.
Since our last Raspberry Pi roundup we’ve found 10 more amazing projects that show how versatile this diminutive PCB is. From voice-activated coffeemakers to wall-hanging plotters, the Raspberry Pi is proving to be a fruitful addition to the maker’s toolbox.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
