At the Raspberry Pi 3rd Birthday I demo'd my Minecraft Star Wars animation.
Myself and David Whale (my co-author on Adventures in Minecraft) were asked if we would do a talk on "Hacking Minecraft" at the Raspberry Pi 3rd Birthday Party. I wanted to do something fun to show you how you can do amazing ...

Anyone know if this can be purchased yet, I have tried several cases and most are pretty much just junk, I have returned several of them for missing parts when shipped to me from Amazon. This one looks awesome!

Using the Raspberry Pi 2 as a media player for digital signage

http://www.risevision.com/blog/digital-signage-on-the-raspberry-pi-2/
When you add up the costs of media players, displays and software, digital signage can be a big investment. With the release of the Raspberry Pi 2 media player however, the engine behind your display just got a lot more powerful for a very reasonable price. The original Raspberry Pi, combined with our free digital...

Introducing the GrovePi+ Starter Kit.  We're calling it the Internet of Things Starter Kit because it's such an easy way to hook up sensors to the internet!

Yes, I can totally see how it does.  it has a similar concept of plug and play.  Some big differences though (namely that it's based off the Pi).  We really admire the LittleBits kit!

This should work in Raspberry Pi 2, right?

Si, but you must adjust block size.

Latest chapter using a GPIO connected Hall effect sensor and a #raspberrypi  to track coming and going of cats via a catflap has been added to the free eBook Raspberry Pi: Measure, Record, Explore (https://leanpub.com/RPiMRE). [SPOILER ALERT] the scripts are real, but the data is fake in this case. No cat could be that predictable.

+Brian Thomas I recommend that you just have a go. The steps are fairly well laid out and if you find a problem that doesn't make sense just contact the author :-). He's always keen to get improvements implemented.

Getting a 'slice of Pi' at the #PiBirthday  yesterday. There were also many many boxes of Raspberry Pi cupcakes (mine was lemon flavoured!)

Of course before we could have our cake we had to munch our way through a 100 or so pizzas! The pizza delivery guys must have had a very big moped or two to deliver all those on...

Maybe we need one of these SD cards for the Raspberry Pi reply, maybe it perform better.

+Marc-Andre Levesque In the same way you put halved tennis balls underneath your CD player to reduce hum and noise coming from your speakers.....

This worked when you had a turntable and played albums but some audio dealers resurrected the idea and sell these high priced gadgets to audiophiles here!

Believe it or not ladies and gentleman.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Using the updated Arduino 1-Wire library code presented here, you can eliminate the need for an external pull-up resistor for typical small networks of DS18B20 temperature sensor...

+Ben Simpson Yes, my comments were not to detract from the pristine work the author did. I just wanted to point out that the pull-up resistor isn't necessary in all applications.

Envy you your work! I have to rush through mine, shopping, dog walking, home stuff, and maybe later, by the end of the day I will get some time to play with my Raspberry Pi's and arduinos....

Mini 3D printer using 4 DVD drivers, all hardware and software works well at last after long time trial, target is to control it by RPi finally. The extruder has not been applied yet.
Hardware: 4 DVD drivers, one for X, one for Y, two for Z; RAMPS 1.4 and Arduino Mega 2560 for stepper drivers
Firmware: Marlin
PC software: Repetier + Slic3r (looking for similar Raspberry Pi version)
