First Look at the Raspberry Pi A+, setup tutorial, testing and review.

Setting up a Raspberry Pi A+ is very easy. In this tutorial we see how to set it up, install the Raspbian distribution to it and measure its power consumption. In other words, we do a full review of it.   The Raspberry Pi A+ is an amazing device. It is a very powerful computer which costs under 30$!   The Raspberry Pi model A+ is very small in size. It has the same size as the Arduino Uno but don’t be fooled by its small size. This board is extremely powerful. It has the same computational power of a…

Raspberry Pi Camera Setup Tutorial for Beginners

In this Raspberry Pi Camera tutorial we are going to see how to setup and use the Camera module to take photos and videos!   When I first received my Raspberry Pi, about a month ago, the first thing I wanted to have was this camera module. I have a passion for photography and from the moment I saw this module I came up with many project ideas. It is an impressive little device, it has a resolution of 5Mp for still images and it can record FULL HD video at 30 FPS.  

Raspberry Pi Tutorial: A first look at Sense Hat add-on board for the Raspberry Pi

c It was developed for the Astro Pi mission and 2 of these boards are deployed to the International Space Station. Let’s start!   The Sense HAT is an add-on board for Raspberry Pi, made especially for the Astro Pi mission – it launched to the International Space Station in December 2015. Yes, two Raspberry Pies with 2 Sense Hats were actually sent to the International Space Station and performed experiments with code that was written by students! Amazing stuff!   The Sense HAT has an 8×8 RGB LED matrix, a five-button joystick and includes the following sensors: • Gyroscope…

Raspberry Pi Project: Touch Weather Station using a DHT22 and a Raspberry Pi 3 with TKInter GUI

Today we are going to test the new Raspberry Pi 3 board, by building a simple but useful project. We are going to build a Touch Screen Weather Station.   A few months back, the Raspberry Pi 3 board was released. It is a great new board because it now offers WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity out of the box! It uses a quad core processor which operates at 1.2Ghz and it has 1GB of RAM available. From the benchmarks I have seen, this board is at least 3 times faster than the original Raspberry Pi. It can run Linux and…

Line Follower Robot without Arduino or Raspberry Pi – A DIY project.

Today we build Line follower robot without using Arduino or any microcontroller, by simply using this easy to build DIY kit.   A line follower robot is an autonomous robot which follows a black line line on a white background. The circuit of this Robot is very simple. It uses some photoresistors, a comparator chip, and some transistors in order to drive the motors. In the future we are going to build more advanced robots using Arduino or Raspberry pi in order our robot to be more “smart”. But this robot is a first good start!  

Raspberry Pi tutorial: Use SSH to in order to remote control your Raspberry Pi.

SSH protocol can be very useful if we want to remote control our Raspberry Pi. I am using a Raspberry Pi A+ board in this video but you can use any Raspberry Pi board you like.   So far, when we wanted to use our Raspberry Pi, we were using a keyboard, a mouse and a monitor via the HDMI port, or a touch screen like this one. The second method is easier and portable. I have prepared a detailed tutorial on that touch screen display a few weeks ago, you can check it out. But if we want an…

Raspberry Pi Tutorial: Create your own GUI (Graphical User Interface) with TkInter and Python

Having a Graphical User Interface (GUI) on a touch screen makes controlling your Raspberry Pi so much easier. With Python and TkInter one can develop his own GUI very easily. In this video, we are going to see how to achieve that.   The project we are building today is very simple but very useful. As you can see I am using an application that I have developed to turn on or off the LED simply by touching an on-screen button. In this video, we are going to see how to develop an application like this, and as you are…
