How do you get started with the Internet of Things? Easy projects, such as a people counter using a passive infrared sensor, offer a cheap and enjoyable way in.

By 2020 there will be twelvety gigajillion of Internet Things all shouting at each other and sulking – Alice Bevel The Internet of Things had been around for a while (since 1982 apparently) but it’s still a bit of a mystery to many. The concept of hooking up physical devices and letting them talk to each …

First thing is to do it with Linux and not with some unsafe insecure proprietary software from a convicted monopolist that is subject to the National Security Letters and a cooperative partner with the NSA.

Raspberry Pi-based two-factor-authentication safe needs a code you remember and one sent to your phone to open.
Securing your digital life with two-factor authentication (2FA) is pretty common nowadays. A password alone just doesn’t hack it. (Or does it?) Typically, 2FA on the web requires a one-time code, sent to your phone, as well as your password to log in. Other systems may use factors such as biometrics (e.g. fingerprints) or hardware dongles. …

TEDsters get their photo taken with the iconic red TED letters: it involves Raspberry Pis, a tablet interface, an Adafruit NFC reader, a camera, and a BlinkStick LED module all working in concert. Project co-author Joshua Warchol has posted the technical details of this particularly fine photo booth, so you can adapt your favourite features for your own set-up!
I’m a bit of a TED talk fiend, so I was delighted to find out that a few Raspberry Pis had a hand in letting TEDsters capture their photo along with the iconic red TED letters at TED2015 in Vancouver. To explain: A funny thing happens at the end of every TED — after the …

We're keen on Modulo: its smart modules - sensors, motor drivers, displays and loads more - take the jumbliness out of building electronics from scratch, letting you concentrate on concepts, design and programming cool stuff. You can control it with Python on a Raspberry Pi. +Modulo Labs' Kickstarter has blasted through its initial target and has 11 days left to run.
We came across the excellent Modulo on Kickstarter recently. Modulo is a “modular solution for building powerful electronic devices” and consists of a cluster of smart modules such as sensors, motor drivers and displays that slide into a solid base unit. It abstracts all the jumbliness of building electronics from scratch and lets you concentrate on …

If they make 75k, they expect it to be a guaranteed business instead of a one-shot with the potential to do that.  If they hit $75k, they will finalize an IR module as well.  Looks promising.  Once I know I've got money in hand, I'm pitching in.

We're chuffed to bits that the Raspberry Pi 2 won Best Product and Eben won Tech Champion at the +The INQUIRER Tech Hero Awards earlier this week. Thanks to the Inquirer, to everyone who voted, and most of all to you, our wonderful community - we wouldn't be here without you!
This is not a flashy post with lots of pictures and farkles. It’s a thank you note. In February 2012 we started selling the Raspberry Pi  (you may not have heard the story—it went pretty well ;)). A year later we moved into a small office. There were six of us. Less than a year …

Meet Pocket PiGRRL, a retro portable gaming build that's suitable for confident beginners. It's a compact and delightful update to last year's popular PiGRRL from Adafruit.
Last year we went into full retronerd dribble mode over the PiGRRL, a Pi-powered Gameboy. Our friends at Adafruit have brought the project up to date with the Pocket PiGRRL. It has a 3D printed case and uses the smaller Raspberry model A+ plus a 2.4″ PiTFT HAT to bring the size down. Emulation is handled by …

A great local newspaper write-up of Cache Valley Raspberry Jam at Wilson Elementary School earlier this week.
It's about the size of a deck of cards but can do amazing things.

Why a photo of Alan M. Turing on the front cover of LinuxVoice in combination with Rapsberry PI? #amturingpi is the name of my pet project! http://osg33x.blogspot.nl/2015/03/introducing-am-turingpi-cluster-computer.html :-)

Introduction

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.

What’s more, the Raspberry Pi  has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infrared cameras. We want to see the Raspberry Pi being used by kids all over the world to learn to program and understand how computers work.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a registered educational charity (registration number 1129409) based in the UK. Our Foundation’s goal is to advance the education of adults and children, particularly in the field of computers, computer science and related subjects.
