"Since January 2012, Gael Langevin has been designing and building his 3D printable InMoov robot piece-by-piece, starting with an Arduino-controlled hand and forearm.

His project now contains a total of twenty modules, each with detailed instructions on how to build a new part for your own life-sized humanoid robot."

Raspberry Pi wall calendar #piday #raspberrypi +Raspberry Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/23/raspberry-pi-wall-calendar-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Via paqmanbiker on imgur

Finished product first. My inspiration came from this project here: http://imgur.com/a/z94Vr, which was inspired by this one: http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-Wall-Mounted-Calender-and-Notificatio/?ALLSTEPS_

_Ok, it’s pretty much an exact copy. I have no creativity, or serious coding chops, so I copied those two projects pretty heavily.
This was supposed to be a surprise mother’s day present for my wife, which means I couldn’t work on it when she was around. Which means it was a very very LATE mother’s day present. As in, I gave it to her a week ago.
For a lot more detail on the coding and whatnot, you can check out the previous projects, as I pretty much copied those. Although I did add a couple nice touches. But basically, I’m just running a web server on the pi, and the index page is the page you see. I have it set so it loads a browser with that page on boot, in kiosk mode, so there are no scroll bars or url bars. Found a script that makes the mouse disappear too.

A python script (stolen from the previous projects) maps the buttons to different keys, as well as mapping them to the GPIO pins on the Pi, giving different functions for each one.

Playstation Pi Tiny #3DThursday #3DPrinting

https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/22/playstation-pi-tiny-3dthursday-3dprinting/

The_Craft_Dude shares:

This is a Raspberry Pi case, designed to work with the pi 2 and 3, it is designed look like a mini version of the Playstation 1. The intention with this case is being used for emulating old games on ReTroPie, but for those who rather want one that looks like the playstation.

How to Make an Earthquake in Minecraft #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/23/how-to-make-an-earthquake-in-minecraft-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Awesome tutorial from stuffaboutcode.com via raspberry pi pod:

In this tutorial you are going to connect your Microbit up to your Raspberry Pi and program them so that when your Microbit is shaken it creates an earthquake in Minecraft.

Noob question. I am trying to repair an electric piano. The volume won't change when you turn the dial. I figured this might mean a bad potentiometer, so I thought I might try to replace it. Any thoughts on other things I might check first?

I think you're right. It has more pins on it than the three that I see on a pot.

Tailless ‘delftAcopter’ has Vertical Take-Off then Transitions to Forward-Facing Flight
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/21/tailless-delftacopter-has-vertical-take-off-then-transitions-to-forward-facing-flight/

The MAVLab TU Delft team brings together in the delftAcopter all its knowledge to help poor Outback Joe once again. To make the challenge even harder we decided to go for a full electrically powered rescue UAV. As a research institute we are always pushing boundaries of what is currently possible. Our first preliminary energy calculations showed that a full-electric mission would be just possible, realizing we would need the state of the art battery technology, extremely efficient VTOL UAV and unique autonomous control implementations. this resulted in the delftAcopter. A marriage of a biplane wing and a helicopter propeller. The innovation lies in particular in the use of a tailless double-decker combined with one helicopter propeller which is used in both hover and in forward flight of in the most optimal regime.

In full-sized aircraft, the transition from vertical to horizontal (and the reverse) was notoriously difficult. Let's hear it for insane power-to-weight ratios!

I didn't like the stock one much anyways, so I made it look nicer in the process. I plan to print another and replace the working one so they match. :)

Wall mounted filament spool holder #3DThursday #3DPrinting
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/22/wall-mounted-filament-spool-holder-3dthursday-3dprinting/

oneadaydotse shares:

I want to store my filament spool behind my printer, on the wall, and I want to be able to switch filament quick and easy. To accomplish that I’ve designed this wall mounted filament spool holder. I’m using a 25 mm diameter aluminium pipe for the main rod, which the spool arms attaches to.

Out o' stock. I'll wait for more to come in- I'm "good" since I made the initial buy order for some of the base units and I'll make up something similar. Good offering though...had you had them in stock, I'd have picked up a couple for the project I'm gearing up for.

The robots making 100,000 Raspberry Pi computers a week #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/23/the-robots-making-100000-raspberry-pi-computers-a-week-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Neat piece from Wired on manufacturing Raspberry Pis.

This is the robot that makes the best-selling Raspberry Pi. The credit-card-sized personal computer, which the firm announced had passed 10 million sales earlier this week, launched its third iteration in February 2016. Now founder Eben Upton is trying to increase production at the 100-person South Wales site. “We hope to hit four million of the mainline product this year,” says Upton, 38.
