  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.

  4. A new 18650 Li-Ion DUAL Battery HAT for the Raspberry Pi. Allows you to run your Raspberry Pi without a cable and also charge your Li-Ion battery. Battery voltage and status can be read from the Pi with a Python script. Batteries can be swapped on the fly for those power hungry or remote applications. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/722780906/pi18650-dual-battery-hat-mobile-raspberry-pi-power
  5. Help. Background: My PI is STATIC IP. It works/worked on my LAN. I took it somewhere to get a bit of help getting it set up as a NAS device. Of course their network was DYNAMIC - or at lest not compatible with the settings I had. I didn't fret on what was done as the person was helping me and we needed network access. We got the initial problem fixed and all was good. I got home and now I can't browse or PING any URL. Eg: google.com But if I PING 8.8.8.8 it works. /etc/resolve.config has the correct nameserver addresses. They work by virtue that the PC is working ok with those as the name servers. Thing is: It used to work, now it won't. I edited the nameserver enteries to 8.8.8.8 and it worked...... Go figure. Anyone? P.S. The /etc/interface/networks is as it was. It is set for STATIC IP.
  6. hi out there First - I am new to PI so I dont hope I have missed something.... My daughters dishwasher got a sick controller suddenly and I try to replace it with a Pi Zero I need to control 5 220v relais (heater - pump - "soap" - outlet-pump - salt) - and about 8 LED and 3 buttons (on/off - program selector and the emergency pump - not ure how this is connected yet) Anyone with a similar project I could look at? Someone with some wiring suggestions for LED and relais Driver? And some with a overview of a dishwasher "program" ? br /ti
  7. For those of you who contributed to the Ghost Kickstarter Project Ghost will be released to you this coming Friday and publicly to everyone in the next month or two. If you need an environment to test Ghost or want to run your blog off a Raspberry Pi this article will show you how to get node.js, the web server that Ghost runs on, npm the package manager for node, and Ghost, the Kickstarter funded blogging platform, running on a Raspberry Pi with the Raspbian operating system. Initial Setup With a clean install of Raspbian run the following commands: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install nodejs sudo apt-get install npm Download and Install Ghost: Go to the Ghost download page and download the latest nightly build. unzip -d ghost Ghost-Nightly-0.2.2-36.zip You can place the ghost directory anywhere you like....I have mine in /home/username/sites/ghost Execute the following commands: cd ghost/ sudo npm install Now you just need to edit the config.js file and replace the listening address and port to your Raspberry Pi’s IP address. For example replace "host: '127.0.0.1'" with "host: '192.168.0.10'" and "port: '2368'" to "port: '80'". And finally run: npm start to start Ghost process. Your new Ghost blog can be accessed at: http://192.168.0.10/ghost Article from: http://www.howtoinstallghost.com/how-to-install-ghost-on-a-raspberry-pi/
  8. Hi again folks. My second PI is the newer one with the 4 USB Ports. This is because I am wanting to set it up to download torrents and the two extra ports would give more space to save files. I don't know the vocabulary so I am inundated when people speel off the commands, which I don't understand. How do I mount the USB sticks? Also to allow me to run it headless, I have installed tightvnc but can't remember how to make it auto start when it boots. Would someone please help me with this too? On a bit of an off topic: I have a C++ book for dummies, but that doesn't really help me with the PI. (more for Arduino) Which "language" does the PI's OS use? UBUNTU? So I can learn how to add/edit auto start programs, etc. Help appreciated.
  9. Hello! I'd like to show you a little project that uses a raspberry pi to control/monitor my freshwater aquarium. Named after PiAC - (Raspberry) Pi Aquarium Controller - the github repo lives at https://github.com/dentex/piac with all the info available. I'm going to update the repo with the new features I finished, as soon as I have some time for this... So I'll try to update this thread also (although it seems that Tapatalk doesn't like this very much - I had to be on the PC) I'd appreciate any feedback, thoughts, critics etc Regards, Samuele
  10. Hi, I'm hoping to build a 4 channel motion activated sound effect system. I'm thinking of using IR motion detector to trigger start of sound effect. The system would send same sound to 4 channels but at different volumes. To compilcate things I'd like wireless speakers, either bluetooth or wi-fi. I've done a lot of googling and It lookslike it might be possible with Rasberry PI, not sure about wireless bit though. Any suggestions where to start would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Colin

  13. We are doing a project for our intro to programming class. We are making a temperature sensor that will send our data to sen.se. When we run our program on our raspberry pi this comes up: Traceback (most recent call last) : File "/home/pi/Desktop/1.py", line 14, in <module> device_folder = glob.glob(base_dir + '28*')[0] IndexError: list index out of range What does this mean? and how can we fix it? Thank you temperature code.txt
  14. On my web site at raspberrywebserver.com, I've written tutorials about web programming and programming with databases in Python. I want to build on the ideas in these tutorials to do something a little more complicated. To that end, I built a Raspberry Pi temperature logging system. It consists of two scripts. One is triggered by cron which reads the temperature from a DS18B20 sensor, and logs it in an SQLite database. The other script is a web UI that displays records from the database using Google charts. You can see a screen shot here:

  19. I have developed a java application to be run on raspberry pi. In my application, if a user clicks on a particular button, it will switch to a different screen. This is working pretty well on my pc, but on raspberry pi it is taking lot of time to switch to the new screen. To check which part of the code is utilizing lot of time, I have measured the time taken by different parts of the code. Seems like, its due to loading a new fxml file and display the screen using stage.setScene(scene). So, I think this is causing the problem. Is there anyway I can reduce time taken to load fxml file and to display the screen?. Kindly help me with this
  20. I just purchased my pi a week ago. I also purchased the atrix lapdock for motorola g3 phone. Following the adafruit youtube tutorial I am going to make a laptop with lapdock and the pi. In a couple of months I plan to buy another pi. With it I want to run an ASIC miner used to mine BTC. I have seen some people post on reddit showing picture of their raspberry pis running BFL jalepenos. I'm excited about both of these endeavors.

  23. Hello all! I thought I would post a project I have been working on. I call it the FruitStand. The name is largely Raspberry Pi influenced, however its just as much for smaller boards like the Arduino. Basically it gives you a nice sturdy place to pop your boards in an out of. I just launched it on Kickstarter.com, but I really would like some feedback for you all. I have attached some pictures of it on this post. Thanks, Ben
  24. Hey there, I am new user here and I was wondering if anyone of you can help me. I have a project where i am suppose to make a camera which would record only once it detects motion. To detect motion I was thinking of using a PIR sensor but i am not sure how to make the camera record. Can I use the Raspberry Pi board to connect the camera and record once the PIR sensor detect motion. Is it possible. I have never used Raspberry Pi so I am not sure if this would be a good project to use it. Thanks in advance, Madman
