10 awesome raspberry pi upgrades

In its short but packed life so far, the Raspberry Pi has been an absolute game changer – not just as a piece of reduced price hardware, but for nurturing a community of likeminded individuals with a common goal: learning and making awesome stuff! We can’t recall the number of times we’ve browsed over to the Raspberry Pi blog and been blown away by the brilliance of a new project. From sorting Portuguese mail to making bullet time rigs, there are a lot of incredible projects out there – more and more are surfacing every day. People often ask what they can do with a Raspberry Pi and it is actually sometimes difficult to articulate an answer to that question, as the use cases are so broad that it is hard…

minecraft nfc

THE PROJECT ESSENTIALS Raspberry Pi 2 Raspberry Pi GPIO Breakout PN532 RFID/NFC Breakout Breadboard MIFARE Classic 1K cards Printed and folded Minecraft cubes Why did you decide to start working with NFC? I think it was a neat way to explore using physical things with a game – taking a device or an object and making it more interactable. I was a little bit inspired by Amiibos and Skylanders – those little figures you can buy that have NFC in them. So I was thinking, what can I do to make something myself out of this? What’s a DIY thing to try? And then I realised that the Raspberry Pi has Minecraft and the cool thing about Minecraft Pi is that it has got a whole little Python API, so it’s really easy…

add a battery pack to your raspberry pi

Your Raspberry Pi’s mobility is usually restricted by the length of the power lead. Rather than limiting it to your desk or living room, however, you can use it for mobile projects as diverse as launching it into near-Earth orbit or monitoring and automating your garden. Of course, to do this you will need batteries, but adding battery power to your Raspberry Pi is simpler than you might have imagined. All that is required are six rechargeable AA batteries (or single-charge alkaline), a battery box with space for the batteries and a UBEC. The latter is a Universal Battery Elimination Circuit, a voltage regulator that will regulate the power supply and prevent damage to the Raspberry Pi, and can be bought for under £10. 01 Order your components If you’re buying your components…

use an android device as a raspberry pi screen

There are a few ways to attach a display to a Raspberry Pi. The ones that everyone is most familiar with are the HDMI port, which can go straight into your monitor or TV, or via the GPIO ports with a portable screen. One avenue that is rarely pursued is using VNC software to remotely view the Raspberry Pi desktop using another computer entirely. It’s actually fairly simple and we are going to concentrate on viewing your Pi screen via Android for maximum portability. With further tweaks you will be able to use this on the go if you find yourself commuting and wanting to catch up on your favourite program, for example. There are a few things that you should be aware of when doing this project – it can be…

make a visual novel with python

Videogames have come a significant way since their early days, and in recent years it’s become even easier to tell a gripping and compelling story through the medium. A great way to tell a pure story is through the genre of visual novels. These interactive novels are extremely popular in Japan, though they’re gaining traction in the rest of the world, and usually have the player click through a story and make decisions as they go to experience different plot points and endings. In Python, this is a relatively easy project to create, but with the addition of the pygame module we can make it easier still and more expandable for the future. Pygame adds better support for positioning images and text, creating display windows, using mouse and keyboard inputs, and…
