  1. Have you ever thought it would be great to have a remote viewer for your GoPro? You know, no more having to look directly at the GoPro to see what it is seeing? Check out this possibility of using Raspberry Pi to set up a VLC to be used as a mini monitor for your GoPro. YouTube is definitely my go-to source these days for seeing demos on how things work. Recently I've used it to fix my dishwasher and also to clean out remote lint from a friend's clothes dryer. Seriously, I should have done a video on that one myself because the amount of lint I pulled out was really ridiculous. Guess they had never really cleaned it out (or at least not very well), so the "old" lint just kept getting pushed back deeper and deeper until there was a massive, dense barrier of lint, so thick that their clothes weren't drying. Fortunately, the dryer didn't catch on fire! Ah, but I digress... Here's a link to a recent post where a gal explores using Raspberry Pi to create a viewer that can be used with a GoPro. She runs into trouble though, and is reaching out to the community for suggestions and possible solutions. I thought it would be a pretty handy application (if she can get it working) and wanted to make the community aware of it to help solve her issue. Comments and suggestions to help should be made on her YouTube post.
  2. Hello there, what kind of writers are you looking for?

  5. Meet the Guitar Boy, a working electric guitar and a working oversized Game Boy rolled into one. Created by electronics whizz Fibbef, an admin on BitFixGaming boards, and spotted by Hackaday, the Guitar Boy is running on a Raspberry Pi B+ with RetroPie version 2.3. The a 5-inch LCD display is powered by a 2,200 mAh battery and the guitar is a passive setup, which uses a humbucker pickup. There's a simple audio selector on the side, which chooses whether the sound comes from the guitar or the Game Boy. And for extra bonus points the body has been built to look exactly like a Classic Game Boy from around 1989. You can watch a video of the Guitar Boy in action over on Fibeff's YouTube channelby hitting the link.

  6. The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is the second generation Raspberry Pi. It replaced the original Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ in February 2014. Compared to the Raspberry Pi 1 it has: A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU 1GB RAM Like the (Pi 1) Model B+, it also has: 4 USB ports 40 GPIO pins Full HDMI port Ethernet port Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video Camera interface (CSI) Display interface (DSI) Micro SD card slot VideoCore IV 3D graphics core Because it has an ARMv7 processor, it can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10 (see the blog for more information). The Raspberry Pi 2 has an identical form factor to the previous (Pi 1) Model B+ and has complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1. We recommend the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B for use in schools: it offers more flexibility for learners than the leaner (Pi 1) Model A+, which is more useful for embedded projects and projects which require very low power. So, anyone here buying one? Source: http://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-2-model-b/
  7. Alaska - The Raspberry Pi certainly is reaching far and wide!
  8. Hmmm, funnily enough that isn't the first time it's happened, although it hasn't cropped up for quite some time. Yes, it's a Tapatalk issue indeed.
  9. Which forum? It leads me to here: http://www.thefruitycomputer.com/forums/tutorials/article/6-how-to-install-a-web-server/
  10. Welcome Eric, sounds like a very noble use of the Pi!
