Listen closely and you can hear the not-so-distant sound of sleigh bells as the Christmas season draws ever closer, bringing with it associated office revelries like parties, secret santa and the increasingly popular Christmas Jumper Day. For the past few years employees have been locking horns in a one-day battle of yuletide one-upmanship involving the finest festive knitwear a network administrator can muster. This year, Raspi magazine is on hand to tip the balance in your favour, with a tutorial on making a pi-powered pull-over that will surely conquer all. There are some less seasonal projects for the grinches among you too, including a look at the smallest Pi tablet in existence and a tutorial on hacking a friend’s minecraft world.

get into the seasonal swing: build a social media sweater

It is fast approaching the winter holidays. Decorations, egg-nog, carols, Home Alone and, of course, Christmas is not Christmas unless you don’t celebrate Christmas of course, without a festive jumper (or sweater to our US readers). The gaudier the better and extra points if it is knitted. So, how about augmenting your jumper with LEDs so that while you make small talk at the office party or throw some shapes on the dance floor, your fellow colleagues can trigger the LEDs via social media? Each time they do, your jumper will light up with all the joy of the season and send them a confirmation tweet with suitable festive image to thank them. In this tutorial, we’ll take some Christmas lights or old LEDs and write a Python program which checks…

raspberry pi tablet

With this project, Stefan Vorkoetter takes the term ‘Pi hack’ and applies it quite literally to hacking down a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B to the bare essentials required for the job, combining it with a 7-inch display to create a lovely handmade Pi tablet sat in a maple frame. His streamlining efforts reduce a recommended thickness of 40mm for the combined Pi and display down to 17.6mm and include so many intelligent touches: an aftermarket USB audio adaptor for use with earbuds or speakers; a real-time clock; and a modified Adafruit PowerBoost 1000 charger with homemade heatsinks, shutdown controller and precision battery monitoring. You added a number of components that were missing from the Pi, as well as stripping away a lot of things – is there anything on your…

get hands on with the pimoroni blinkt!

Pimoroni has created an awesome ‘superbright RGB LED indicator’ that is ideal for adding visual notifications to your Raspberry Pi without breaking the bank! The Blinkt! offers eight APA102 pixels in the smallest (and cheapest) form factor to plug straight into your Raspberry Pi 3/2/B+/A+/ Zero. This tutorial walks you through how to install the Blinkt! and the required Python libraries and modules. Next, create and try out some simple code to control the lights and change the colours and the brightness of the LEDs. Finally, combine these skills together to code an LED colour generator that selects a random LED and a random RGB colour value for the range of eight lights. This creates a psychedelic disco-light setup. 01 Install the Blinkt! The guys at Pimoroni have made it very easy…

hack minecraft on a friend’s raspberry pi over a network

We will create a Python script that connects directly to a Minecraft game running on another Raspberry Pi, which will enable us to have some fun with their game world. We’ll have the ability to manipulate the character, the environment, and place blocks, as we’ve done in the previous tutorials, but this time we’re working on someone else’s game. We’ll be able to have pranks galore, but it should be mentioned that this should not be done without prior permission of the third party. This tutorial is written under the assumption that you’re running Minecraft Pi Edition on a Raspberry Pi. No additional software is required. If you’d like to run this tutorial on your own flavour of desktop Linux, we’ve also put together a number of tools to ensure this…

keep track with status board

The Pi Hut’s latest add-on, the Status Board is simple yet powerful, like the Pi itself and with a board, you can monitor anything you want at a glance. The Status Board has five customisable strips, each with a green and red LED. The options are almost limitless. Do you want to be able to quickly check if your home server is online? Or perhaps you’d prefer to monitor a value, such as whether your investments have gone up or down? Each strip can be written on with a dry-wipe marker, so you can keep reassigning them. In this guide, we’ll focus on basic setup of your Status Board, along with some example scripts coded by us and the folks at the Pi Hut. These sample scripts can be used to check…
