Project to create an irrigation control from a Pi that bypasses the irrigation depending on the weather.
A cute little Instructable on creating an arcade cabinet table using a Pi, a couple of old-fashioned coin-up buttons and a coin-up joystick.
Great tutorial on how to get the SR04 Ultrasonic distance sensor up-and-running on the Pi. This is what I’m using on the PiPodCorder and the tutorial uses some of the same code and identical wiring.
Just a quick post for a quick video showing a newly-arrived Model A.
This fantastic project is to create an expansion board, on top of which sits an XBox ChatPad. The page includes details on how to do it including a detailed parts list. There’s a software driver to go along with it.
The nanpy library allows Python programmers to communicate with an Arduino connected via a serial line connected to a host computer (in our case, a Raspberry Pi).
It is similar to pyFirmata. The nanpy library is under development and has a long way to go to get up to the level of that other library, but it looks promising and simple to use.
One big thing that is missing at the moment, however, is a guide on what the Arduino needs to be running in order for it to work! I will contact the authors and find out!
Edit: It seems that there is a firmware folder in the nanpy package that you upload to the Arduino. I find it slightly surprising (and a bit confusing) that this isn’t spelt out in the ‘How to use documentation’ but, hey, it is under development!
