iTorch, a Flashlight Projector with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/22/itorch-a-flashlight-projector-with-raspberry-pi-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

From instructables user MrTravisHiggins:

I designed the iTorch to be a portable and wireless projection system that would allow a user to freely project their media wherever they choose. I am currently working on integrating the iTorch into a gaming platform where the iTorch is both the viewing device (tv) as well as the controller!

How to Drive an HD44780 Display with a Shift Register and Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/22/how-to-drive-an-hd44780-display-with-a-shift-register-and-raspberry-pi-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

From instructables user mrmath:

One advantage of HD44780 driven displays is that there is a ton of information out there on how to use them, and even a good amount of information on how to use them with the Raspberry Pi.  Because of this, I won’t go into too much detail on how to run the display from the Raspberry Pi, but instead I’m going to focus using the shift register to drive the display.

I run one from a shift register attached to an ATmega 328PU. It works great, and I can use all 10 input lines.

Ball Tracking with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/22/ball-tracking-with-raspberry-pi-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

From instructables user amey_s:
In this tutorial, I will demonstrate how to track table tennis balls using OpenCV on Raspberry Pi. It can be used to track any circular object as long as it can be detected well from its background. This can be helpful in ball tracking robots and similar projects.

Curiosity rover by Sergey
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/21/curiosity-rover-by-sergey/

Sergey Grishchenko shared a very cute robotics project on Thingiverse.

It is not the real copy and its ‘working!
This rover controlled via Bluetooth from remote. You can watch the picture from WiFi camera. It has a gimbal for camera, arm and two headlights. And all six wheels are driven!
Unfortunately, I am not ready yet to upload sources of hardware and software, but you can use my 3D-printed parts.

Made for Russian site customelectronics.ru

Astro Pi Flight Case #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/22/astro-pi-flight-case-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

This Astro Pi case makes your Raspberry Pi space ready. via raspberrypi.org

You can’t just take a Raspberry Pi into space in your pocket or an old soft scoop ice cream tub. It’s too spiky for one thing. What you need is a block of aluminium the size of your head and some mad milling skills to make the best Pi case ever. Dave Honess explains:

The latest update to the Astro Pi project is the unveiling of the Astro Pi aluminium flight case that British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake will be using on the ISS. This will not be available to the public to buy because we’re only making a small number of them. We may however, in due course, release an object file so schools with a 3D printer can print one themselves.

Raspberry Pi Moving Timelapse Tutorial @Raspberry_Pi#piday #raspberrypi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/22/raspberry-pi-moving-timelapse-raspberry_pi-piday-raspberrypi/

Super handy tutorial for all of those Raspberry Pi time-lapse aficionados out there! From telonics on instructables:

This is how to use a raspberry pi along with it’s camera to create beautiful moving timelapse videos (called hyperlapse vidoes)
