Raspberry Pi coders and makers are some of the most inspiring people around – this is a great community of really creative individuals and groups. It’s always inspiring to see what you are all up to, so for this issue we’ve shared some excellent creations from among the myriad that we keep tabs on – hopefully you’ll find something that inspires you as much as it did us! We love a good hacking project here at RasPi, so we’ve picked 20 of our favourites – from the chap who built a spaceship and mission control desk into his sons’ bedrooms through to element14’s hacker extraordinaire Ben Heck, we have the inside story from each maker. Plus, you can finish off your J.A.R.V.I.S. software this issue! Editor From the makers of LinuxUser &…

20 raspberry pi projects

There are now around six million Raspberry Pi models out in the wild, and some of the things that you, the Raspberry Pi community, have made with them truly are wild. From elegantly crafted scripts that chain together a series of web services to homebrew Rube Goldberg machines, they are as creative as they are diverse. And through the crowd of new projects bubbling up online every day, if there’s one word that’s guaranteed to get everyone’s attention then it’s the word ‘hack’ But what exactly is a hack? Well, for the purposes of this feature, we decided that a hack has to have some sort of hardware base. It’s the kind of project where you take one device and, with a little Raspberry Pi magic, transform it into something wholly…

01 portable pi arcade

Ben Heck has built two versions of the Portable Pi Arcade. The first was the original Portable Raspberry Pi project (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUZjzQuTNX4), where he hacked the Pi to reduce its size and opened up a USB game controller to extract the circuits. With a new assembly in place, he 3D-printed a custom-designed case, put the new device together, and booted up MAME (the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) to play old-school games. MAKER PROFILE Ben Heck Master hacker, creator of The Ben Heck Show Ben Heck is an online sensation and a pillar of the maker community, putting out amazing how-to videos for games console hacks and all kinds of different Pi projects. He’s done it all on element14’s The Ben Heck Show. Find out more...benheck.com His revival of this earlier project was even more home-made. For the…

02 camera pi

Dave Hunt is an excellent photographer and shared his Camera Pi invention with us. “I needed to transmit photos to an iPad as they were taken,” explains Dave, “but the commercial solutions were £500. I had a broken battery grip big enough to fit my Raspberry Pi and a battery, so it went from there. “The battery grip holds two batteries. Once I’d stripped out the battery compartment, I set about filing down all the mounting holes inside the grip so I could get the Raspberry Pi inside. “The next task was to fit a camera battery and DC-DC converter inside. I was able to use part of the removed internals of the grip, and before long I had a slot to insert a camera battery into. It’s capable of powering the…

03 pi telephone

Stuart Johnson is bringing a classic GPO 746 handset back to life, and while the project wasn’t complete at the timing of writing, he has finished the lion’s share of it. “I took out the main circuit board inside the phone and squeezed the Raspberry Pi in there,” says Stuart. “I was then faced with two challenges – the biggest one was getting the bell to ring. I found a solution by raising the voltage to 19 volts and dropping it down to 5 for the Ras Pi using a very small DC-DC converter (the OKI-78SR), with the rest then being used for the bell. I was surprised by how well it worked. “The bell is using one of the I/O ports, and there’s an available C# library (raspberry-sharp-io) which lets…

Remember the sat-nav we built a couple of issues back? Well, Derek Knaggs already beat us to it, and he’s embedded the display in his dashboard and extended the setup to include screens for the rear passenger seats too. “I removed the DVD player, which was a standard Ford head unit,” explains Derek, “and then purchased a head unit from Xtrons. It’s designed for the Ford Focus so it was a straight swap. The Xtrons radio has an S-Video input and that goes into the radio, so the Raspberry Pi displays as Auxiliary Input. There’s two Auxiliary Outputs on the radio, so the Raspberry Pi sends a video to the main radio which then sends it back out to the screens in the passenger seats. What I’ve done is put…
