Minecraft is such a great resource for learning how to code. It’s approachable, fun and much more flexible than you might think. This issue, we explain how you can use it to create your very own version of the classic puzzler Minesweeper. That’s not the only game we’re looking at this issue either; you’ll also learn how to start coding a version of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock using the Sense HAT. Plus we take a look at an incredible Pi-powered RC submersible, demonstrate how you can use the Raspberry Pi and Python to set up a motion tracker, explain how to use Fritzing to design your own circuit diagrams, and anonymise your internet browsing u using the Pi and TOR. Enjoy! Editor Get inspired Discover the RasPi community’s best projects Expert advice Got a…

create a minecraft minesweeper game

You may remember or have even played the classic Minesweeper PC game that originally dates back to the 60s. Over the years it has been bundled with most operating systems, appeared on mobile phones, and even featured as a mini-game variation on Super Mario Bros. This project will walk you through how to create a simple version in Minecraft: it’s Minecraft Minesweeper! You will code a program that sets out an arena of blocks and turns one of these blocks into a mine. To play the game, guide your player around the board. Each time you stand on a block you turn it to gold and collect points, but watch out for the mine as it will end the game and cover you in lava! 01 Update and install To update your Raspberry…

underwater pi drone

Why did you decide to build an ROV (remotely operated vehicle)? When I was a kid I frequently built RC models; sailing boats and speedboats. While I owned a fantastic RC glider and dreamed of having my own RC submarine someday, my neighbour at the time had an RC submarine and discouraged me from building one by saying this thing always had trouble with its electronics and leakage. Besides, almost all waters are murky in our area! Around the end of 2014, I saw a National Geographic episode about the salvage of the Costa Concordia and was very impressed with how they used a VideoRay to monitor the work done by their divers, and it helped revive my dream of having my own model submarine. That’s when I stumbled across the people…

master essential sense hat skills

In December 2015, two Raspberry Pi computers were each fitted with an Astro Pi, which is an add-on board boasting an array of sensors and an 8x8 LED matrix. These were flown to the ISS and delivered to Major Tim Peake with a selection of school children’s experiments. In late December 2015, the Astro Pi was released for sale to the public as the rebranded ‘Sense HAT’. This consists of exactly the same hardware and sensors set found on the Astro Pi but with a new ‘Sense HAT’ API. The first part of this two-part tutorial introduces you to the Sense HAT hardware and walks you through the skills required to create a Sense HAT version of the updated classic Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock game. These skills also stand…

anonymise your web traffic with a pi tor router

Are you concerned about your online privacy? Suspect that the NSA or GCHQ are tracking you online? Or are you simply anxious about advertising networks targeting their ads at you? If this is the case, or you’re simply on the lookout for a new project, then setting your Raspberry Pi up as an anonymising Tor wireless access point is a good way to save time and effort setting up Tor on all of your PCs and mobile devices. If you’re unaware, Tor is free software that enables anonymity online and routes internet traffic through a worldwide anonymising network of over 7000 relays. By doing this, your location and website use can be concealed from techniques such as traffic analysis and network surveillance. This is all about protecting your privacy by making your visits…

create your own circuit diagrams with fritzing

Putting circuits together can be tricky, even for experts. Fortunately, various notations exist that make it easier to work out just where wires, components and power sources are connected. But rather than jot these details down with a pencil and paper, you might prefer to bring an element of realism to the illustration. This is particularly useful for beginners, and if you’re demonstrating a breadboard-mounted circuit with an Arduino, for instance, you might wish to clearly and accurately illustrate the precise positions of each component and wire. This is where Fritzing comes in. You’ve probably seen illustrations of circuits in the pages of RasPi over the years, and with Fritzing you too can put together circuit illustrations, simply by dragging and dropping the categorised components into place, saving, and exporting.
