From smartwatches to VR headsets, wearables are a huge story in tech right now, whether you’re using them to track your activity or to control programs and games. In this issue, our expert guide explains how you can make your very own wearable in the shape of a Raspberry Pi glove. You’ll learn how to build and program it to play music and use social media, so you’ll be navigating with Minority Report-style gestures in no time! Elsewhere in the issue, Chris Osborn explains how he’s made the Raspberry Pi pop by using it to control a fireworks display. Plus we’ll introduce you to FUZE BASIC and how to code a simple game, and take a look at how the Pi can serve up RSS feeds. Enjoy the issue! Editor Get inspired Discover…

build a pi glove

The Pi Glove is our project name for a wearable, social media-controlling glove – we’re going to show you how to build it and how to program it. With the advent of Google Glass, Android and Apple smartwatches and various other disruptive technologies, the devices we’re beginning to use today point towards a future where we may well one day wear all of the gadgets that enable us to communicate with each other (before they are simply embedded into our bodies…). The more natural or ergonomic this medium becomes, the more likely we are to use it, so we’re going to use a Raspberry Pi to create a powerful yet comfortable glove. In the first section of the tutorial we’ll cover the hardware setup so that you can make your…

fireworks controller

How did you first get started with this project? So, I’m building a sprinkler controller and I realised that, before I installed it as a sprinkler controller, I could use it for fireworks. It’s actually installed as a sprinkler controller now. What hardware did you decide to use to build it? I just got a bunch of 8-channel relay boards from eBay and some power supplies that would take up to 48 volts in, and do a DC-DC step-down (but it will actually take AC in as well, because that’s what I need for the sprinkler controller), and it was like $4 for the power supply and I think $7 a piece for the relay boards. I connected three relay boards for the sprinklers, but I actually only used one relay board to…

learn to code with fuze basic

BASIC, prolific during the late Seventies and Eighties due to the popularity of the 8-bit BBC Micro, was the language that kickstarted much of the software industry we know today. Many programmers then moved on to more complex and powerful languages like C/+/++/Java etc, games consoles took over the home computer market and BASIC was all but forgotten. Fast-forward 30 years and it’s easy to see why the UK government is desperately trying to get kids coding again – resources are now very thin on the ground and we’re outsourcing our programming requirements like there’s no tomorrow. There’s really never been a better time to become a programmer. You’ll find no better introduction than learning to program a game, so we’ll start with the classic bat-and-ball genre, but with a twist…

working with rss feeds

There are many projects around the Internet that use the Raspberry Pi as the engine for ticker-type displays. In this way, you can keep track of all of your Twitter or Facebook feeds. This time, we will take a look at another ticker service, specifically RSS feeds. While we could start with first principles, looking at making raw network connections and parsing the returned RSS data, that is a bit beyond the scope of such a short article. Instead, we will look at using the Python module ‘feedparser’, or the ‘Universal Feed Parser’. This module will abstract out the lower level complications and enable us to focus on actually playing with the RSS data. True to its name, the Universal Feed Parser can work with most feed formats currently in…

talking pi

@linuxusermag Linux User & Developer RasPi@imagine-publishing.co.uk The Raspberry Pi encourages a lot of hands-on work and this means it doesn’t quite work like – or as easily as – your laser focus-tested smartphone interface, or even a normal computer. So we’re answering your burning Raspberry Pi questions each issue – get in touch with us on Twitter, Facebook or by email. One thing I never see mentioned is a cold-call blocking system? I built one with my first Pi Zero and it’s great! Brian via email Hi Brian. Do you have five minutes to take a telephone survey about Raspberry Pi? Kidding aside though, a cold- call blocking system is a great idea. In your longer letter you mentioned the software you use (NCID; http://ncid.sourceforge.net/) and explained more about how your system hangs up on…
