Removing SMD parts more complex than a resistor or SOT-23 can be a real bear. You want to get the part off without damaging traces, and if possible, without damaging the part either. You could haul out your hot air tool or you could go in surgically with these handy SMD Removal Kits from Chipquik!

SMD removal is made easy! They use a special metal alloy that bonds to your solder but stays liquid for a long time so can melt it over the existing pads and then remove with tweezers.

* The unusually accurate portrait of hacking on USA’s Mr. Robot – featuring Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi*
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/31/the-unusually-accurate-portrait-of-hacking-on-usas-mr-robot-featuring-raspberry-pi-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Vulture has an interview with Michael Bazzell, a technical assistant for USA’s Mr. Robot series and he brings up the use of Raspberry Pi in the show.

…The storyline has shifted in the past two episodes toward something called a “raspberry pi,” a technology that seems niche even for a show like Mr. Robot.

Raspberry pi is an extremely popular device right now. It is basically a mini computer, the size of a deck of cards with the full processing power of a mini computer at only $30 or so. They are very common in the hacking community as an intrusion method because you can put a Linux distribution or operating system on it and have full network capability.

So the idea of using a raspberry pi to control the temperature and melt Evil Corp’s data isn’t that far-fetched.

Sam and Kor had already done much of the research on raspberry pi, and this was just another way Mr. Robot uses current and real technology versus fictional technology that doesn’t exist in real life. Despite a raspberry pi basically being a smaller computer and quite common — anyone in my community knows about raspberry pi and uses them frequently — I have never seen one onscreen before.

In episode five, we see Elliot install the raspberry pi behind an electrical panel connected to the bathroom. Could FSociety actually control the device from their Coney Island headquarters?

That was my technical involvement in the episode. If it is simply placed into a network, it does nothing, but if you have a raspberry pi with a connection available to it, such as through a cellular network and its access, you can be anywhere in the world and still connect to the device. And those were the tweaks I worked on to add to the script, making sure the raspberry pi would be accessible remotely.

Oh Great! Now the Kali/raspberry Pi threads will be full of Noobs asking how to hack using a raspberry Pi!
(Oh wait, they do that already -lol)

DOLPi: A Raspberry Pi powered polarization camera #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/31/dolpi-a-raspberry-pi-powered-polarization-camera-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Hackaday posted about this project from hackaday.io user David Prutchi.

The polarization of light carries interesting information about our visual environment of which we are unaware because human vision is virtually insensitive to polarization. Some animals have evolved the capability to see polarization as a distinct characteristic of light, and rely critically on this sense for navigation and survival. Many fish, arthropods, and octopuses use polarization vision as a compass for navigation, to detect water surfaces, and to enhance the detection of prey and predators. Polarization cameras do exist, but at over $50,000, they are mostly research curiosities that have found few practical uses outside the lab. The DOLPi project aims to widely open the field of polarization imaging by constructing a very low cost polarimetric camera that can be used to research and develop game-changing applications across a wide range of fields; spanning all the way from environmental monitoring and medical diagnostics, to security and antiterrorism applications.

How to Build your own Pi Powered Barking Dog Alarm@Raspberry_Pi#piday #raspberrypi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/31/how-to-build-your-own-pi-powered-barking-dog-alarm-raspberry_pi-piday-raspberrypi/

Interesting idea! Tutorial via instructables user Issamy.

The instructable below describes how to create a barking dog alarm: when someone gets close to your house door, a barking dog sound will be triggered from inside the house making all undesirable guest go away.

Monitoring Room Temperature with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/31/monitoring-room-temperature-with-raspberry-pi-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Today I’m going to show you how to monitor ambient room temperature with a Raspberry Pi. We’re going to wire up a temperature sensor, gather temperature values and send them to Firebase. This could be the start of a weather station or other crazy experiments. In my case we’re going to check the temperature of a room to make sure our newborn puppies don’t get too hot or cold during the day.

You can monitor any number of temperatures with DS18S20s daisy chained to an Arduino or an ATMega. You can even drive a little 20x4 LCD panel, and it's cheap, cheap, cheap.

NEW PRODUCT - Adafruit BMP280 I2C or SPI Barometric Pressure & Altitude Sensor

https://www.adafruit.com/product/2651

Bosch has stepped up their game with their new BMP280 sensor, an environmental sensor with temperature, barometric pressure that is the next generation upgrade to the BMP085/BMP180/BMP183. This sensor is great for all sorts of weather sensing and can even be used in both I2C and SPI!

This precision sensor from Bosch is the best low-cost, precision sensing solution for measuring barometric pressure with ±1 hPa absolute accuraccy, and temperature with ±1.0°C accuracy. Because pressure changes with altitude, and the pressure measurements are so good, you can also use it as an altimeter with  ±1 meter accuracy.

The BME280 is the next-generation of sensors from Bosch, and is the upgrade to the BMP085/BMP180/BMP183 - with a low altitude noise of 0.25m and the same fast conversion time. It has the same specifications, but can use either I2C orSPI. For simple easy wiring, go with I2C. If you want to connect a bunch of sensors without worrying about I2C address collisions, go with SPI.

Nice sensor right? So we made it easy for you to get right into your next project. The surface-mount sensor is soldered onto a PCB and comes with a 3.3V regulator and level shifting so you can use it with a 3V or 5V logic microcontroller without worry. We even wrote up a nice tutorial with wiring diagrams, schematics, libraries and examples to get you running in 10 minutes!

And make sure to check the tutorial for pinouts, assembly, wiring, downloads, and more!

"Absolute accuraccy..." This must be some new kind of accuracy I have yet to hear about...

Raspberry Pi Powered By Batteries #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/31/raspberry-pi-powered-by-batteries-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

How to power your Pi with batteries. via instructables

I will show you how to properly supply power to a Raspberry Pi or Pi 2 with a battery pack or any voltage between 2.9 -32 volts DC. I will be using a efficient Pololu Step-Up/Step-Down Voltage Regulator and a toggle switch.

This can be done with any Raspberry pi version. Using a DC-DC converter allows us to have around a 90 percent efficiency in converting the power of the battery into power for the pi. You can substitute out for a fixed output DC to DC regulator but its nice to have a adjustable one if you want to use it for other projects. Its a dollar cheaper and available here (Pololu fixed 5v regulator). This will also allow to skip the steps on adjusting the above regulator.
