NEW PRODUCT – Hacking the Raspberry Pi – Raspberry Pi is taking off like a rocket! You can use this amazing, dirt-cheap, credit card-sized computers to learn powerful hardware hacking techniques as you build incredibly creative and useful projects! This complete, full-color guide requires absolutely no experience with either hardware hacking or computer programming. Colorful photos guide you through each project, and the step-by-step instructions are stunningly clear and easy.
1. Start with the absolute basics:
Discover why millions of people are so passionate about the Pi!
Tour the hardware, including storage, connections, and networking
Install and run Raspbian, Raspberry Pi’s Linux-based operating system
Manage devices and configuration files
Network Raspberry Pi and add Wi-Fi
Program Raspberry Pi using Python, Scratch, XHTML, PHP, and MySQL
2. Next, build all these great projects:
Retro Console Video Game Station
Security & Privacy Device
3. Then, master all these cutting-edge techniques:
Overclock Raspberry Pi for better performance
Link Raspberry Pi to the Arduino and Arduino clones, including the AlaMode and the Gertboard
Use the Pi to build electronics prototypes using a breadboard
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
