Ever sat down to type up a report or work on a piece of code, then realised you’ve been looking at amusing animal videos on YouTube for the past 50 minutes? You’re not alone. Although our computers are wonderful and capable powerhouses of productivity they’re also packed full of distractions, from the wonders of the web to a simple solitaire session. The subject of our Pi-project showcase this issue is the Scripto, a distraction-free device that offers all of the functionality of a fully-fledged word processor with none of the attention sapping add-ons of a desktop or laptop. Swipe to the left a few times to find out how it was made... Editor Get inspired Discover the RasPi community’s best projects Expert advice Got a question?

turn the raspberry pi into a remote hacking device

RubberDucky USB devices are great penetration-testing tools. This device is plugged into a target computer, and the USB drive tricks the computer into thinking it’s a HID keyboard device in order to gain privileged access. Keyboards naturally provide a user with unrestricted access to the computer, in ways that a USB stick wouldn’t normally be able to. Pre-configured ‘Ducky’ scripts are then run on the target machine to prank the user or provide unauthorised remote access. Not only are we going to turn a Raspberry Pi Zero W into a USB device capable of running Ducky scripts, we’re also going to gain remote access to the target machine in order to select which scripts we’d like to run, and gain shell access on the target PC. For the sake of this tutorial…

write more with scripto

Where did the original idea for Scripto stem from? The Scripto started as a final project as part of my Computing and Design degree at the Open University. The concept of a distraction-free device for writers is not new, but it is currently under-served in the market. The Raspberry Pi was also inspirational in providing an accessible computing unit for makers who aren’t necessarily hardware experts. Could you talk us through the design and build phase of Scripto? Did you encounter any major issues? The Scripto was designed with three major goals in mind: it should be distraction-free, it should be convenient versus other solutions, and it should be cheap. Balancing the other factors with cost was a continual challenge. As the device is currently designed, I think the price would be too…

mod minecraft on the raspberry pi using python

This tutorial is written with Minecraft Pi Edition in mind, but you don’t have to be running Minecraft on a Raspberry Pi to follow along. We’ve put together a little package that will work on any version of Minecraft, so if you’d like to run this tutorial on your favourite flavour of desktop Linux – Pi or no Pi – you can. To allow Python to hook into Minecraft you’ll need to install McPiFoMo by extracting the contents of the .minecraft directory into your ~/home/.minecraft. McPiFoMo includes MCPiPy from MCPiPy.com and Raspberry Jam, developed by Alexander Pruss. Provided you have Python installed, which of course is pretty standard on most distros, no additional software is required, other than your favourite text editor or Python IDLE. Python scripts in this tutorial should…

getting started with the pimoroni rainbow hat

Pimoroni is adept at creating awesome Hardware Attached on Top (HATs) for the Raspberry Pi. Last year it released the Rainbow HAT and, as expected, it’s stacked with a buffet of sensors, inputs and displays to explore your surroundings. Use it as a weather station, a clock, a timer, a mood light or endless other things. This tutorial walks you through some of the Rainbow HAT’s main functions such as displaying text and taking a temperature reading. Then we move onto coding for the ten LEDs: everyone likes LEDs, and the Rainbow HAT boasts both mini-LEDs and seven full-RGB LEDs. Combine these with the built-in piezoelectric buzzer and the three touch buttons, and you have a simple all-in-one musical disco machine. In the last steps of the tutorial, we’ll create a real-time…

carry out portable geodesy

The Raspberry Pi platform allows for projects where you can bring a computer with you when you go out into the field to do research. One of these research areas is geodesy (and geomatics), which is the branch of applied mathematics that’s concerned with measuring and understanding the Earth’s geometric shape. As you may have suspected, doing three-dimensional mathematics on a curved surface can be a tad messy. Hence the need to have some robust computing handy. The traditional way to do field work is to go out and collect measurements, then go back to the office. This month, we’ll look at a Python module called PyGeodesy which can be used to handle these types of calculations. This isn’t available in the regular package repos, so you will need to…
