Bypass Your Monitor with a Headless Raspberry Pi Interface @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Nice project + write-up from Pičugins Arsenijs up on Make.
My inspiration was the fact that existing ways to control and interface with our Raspberry Pi projects aren’t comfortable to use and seem to be overly complicated. I don’t like using another computer when I just need to shutdown my Pi, or even use a UART adapter to connect it to a wireless network. Instead, I’ve decided to make an interface that I could use for those things. Once I started working on it, I’ve understood that it could be used in many more applications — and by many more makers! Thus, the pyLCI project was born.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
