Making A Home-made Raspberry Pi Robot @Raspberry_Pi#piday #raspberrypi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/03/making-a-home-made-raspberry-pi-robot-raspberry_pi-piday-raspberrypi/


Awesome post from Average Man vs. Raspberry Pi!

You will have seen recently that I’ve been playing with a few Raspberry Pi robot kits, the kind that are usually pre-built and just require a bit of code to get you started, most coming with helpful guides and/or downloadable Python files.

But what about going solo and making your own robot almost from scratch?

I tried to accomplish this very task – building a home-made Raspberry Pi robot as a bit of fun, but also as another method of learning how to use motors with the Pi and Python.

The idea to do this came after attending Pi Wars in Cambridge, which made me consider entering my own robot in the next competition – causing me to rush home to buy tracks, motors, chassis plates and all sorts of other parts I couldn’t really afford to waste my money on!

Turn Your Raspberry Pi into a Network Monitoring Tool #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/03/turn-your-raspberry-pi-into-a-network-monitoring-tool-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Whether you want to keep an eye on devices on your home network or wish to monitor the performance of your website, the open source Nagios monitoring tool should be your first port of call. Although you’ll need a Linux box, the Nagios software is quick to install and straightforward to configure.

But, it’s a bit of a waste of a PC. Having a full system setup and dedicated to checking whether other devices have gone offline wastes space, power and hardware. Fortunately, we have a solution to this, in the shape of the Raspberry Pi, the compact British-built mini-computer that has proved itself to be incredibly versatile since its release in 2012. So popular, in fact, that a new version, the Raspberry Pi 2 has been released in 2015.

Raspberry Pi Controlled Chicken Coop Door @Raspberry_Pi#piday #raspberrpi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/03/raspberry-pi-controlled-chicken-coop-door-raspberry_pi-piday-raspberrpi/

Nice write up from RaspberryPi.org on Eric Escobar‘s Pi Powered Chicken Coop project.

Eric Escobar has a very neat Pi-powered solution to the problem of night-time chicken imprisonment, which is safer than some others we’ve seen, which use linear actuators. This door’s lowered using gravity, so there will be no very, very, very slow and eventually deadly crushing of any chickens or small children with Eric’s setup. The door is programmed to be lowered at a certain time of day, once it’s dark enough for all the chickens to have moved indoors.

terraPin Kaiju 6×18 Pinhole Gamera #3Dprinting   #3DThursday  
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/02/terrapin-kaiju-6x18-pinhole-gamera/

I grew up watching Japanese Kaiju movies on TV every Sunday afternoon on channel 11’s Sci-Fi Theatre. Gamera, a rocket-powered flying turtle beast, was and remains my favorite Kaiju. I hope it is obvious that the terraPin Kaiju is a giant mutant pinhole, a pinhole Gamera!
