Using interrupts with Python on the Raspberry Pi and RPi.GPIO
How to use interrupts with Python on the Raspberry Pi and RPi.GPIO @ RasPi.TV. We’ve been learning about interrupts this week because of the brand new interrupt capabilities of RPi.GPIO. We covered a simple “wait for” interrupt in part 1, threaded callback interrupt and button debouncing in part 2 and today we’re getting sophisticated with multiple threaded callbacks. “WoooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo”, I hear you say. ;)

Repurpose Optical Drive With RPi
This project came about after my beloved laptop's optical drive started to misbehave. Removing the tray meant I had a large hole in the side of my computer so I needed to fill it with something. I had seen that you could buy bays that you can slot a second hard drive into for your laptop. I didn't really have the need for that so instead, I went about designing and 3D printing a replacement blank part with the same dimensions as the original dive, with a space that I could fit passport sized notebook that I kept all my project ideas in.

The Linux Throwie: Powering a Linux Server with a 300mW Solar Panel | Hackaday

This time, the stubborn idea in question was sort of like a solar-rechargeable LED throwie, but instead of a blinking light, it has a fully cloud-accessible embedded Linux server in the form of a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

Called nexus433, it uses a cheap 433 MHz receiver connected to the Pi’s GPIO pins to receive data from environmental sensors using the popular Nexus communication protocol. A few known compatible sensors are listed in the project documentation, one of which can be had for as little as $5 USD shipped.

TensorFlow Pi port is latest salvo in battle for edge analytics
The recent port of TensorFlow to the Raspberry Pi is the latest in a series of chess moves from Google and its chief AI rival Nvidia to win the hearts and keyboards of embedded Linux developers. Integrating TensorFlow models into an embedded project offers further challenges. Yet, as Google has shown with its AIY Projects kits for the Raspberry Pi, you can add a bit of ML smarts in Raspberry Pi based robots, vision systems, and other embedded gear without fighting a huge learning curve.

The TensorFlow port should be particularly welcome in the Raspberry Pi educational community. As the RPi Foundation’s Eben Upton wrote in a congratulatory tweet about the “massive news,” the TensorFlow port will enable “cool machine-learning educational content.”

Smart Wall Calendar: 5 Steps
I decided to build some sort of smart wall calendar, which will display our reminders, events and some other data. Since I have various old electronic parts lying around, my goal was to reuse them as many as possible and build the calendar with as little costs as possible.

In this tutorial I will show you, how to build smart wall calendar, displaying events from several Google accounts. It will also display time, date, weather, temperature and some additional information. It will be powered by a Raspberry Pi computer with a Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) motion sensor attached to it, so that the display turns on, when motion is detected in the room, but turns off after few minutes of inactivity.

A DCF77, WWVB, JJY and MSF clock LF-band signal transmitter using the Raspberry Pi
I am living in a country where there is no DCF77 sender nearby for my European radio controlled wristwatch to get its time. So I built my own 'transmitter', taking the NTP time of a Raspberry Pi and generating a modulated radio signal via GPIO pins. Since many other long-wave time stations around the world use similar concepts of sending amplitude modulated time, other time services have been added. This program is useful if you have a clock that otherwise does not get any reception.

The Raspberry Pi is a mini-computer, like the one inside the your laptop but with a lot less power (which is why it costs just $35). What it lacks in oomph it makes up for in its “tinker-ability”—with just a little know-how you can use the Pi as the basis for all kinds of computing and electronics projects. It essentially gives you the raw basics of a computer.

The BattBorg is a plug and play power converter for your Raspberry Pi which allows you to power the Raspberry Pi with batteries! It's great for robot projects, or where you need to leave you Pi unmanned for extended periods without a wired power source (outside sensor projects etc.)

The BattBorg uses a highly efficient (~90%) OKI78SR DCDC converter which has a maximum 1.5A output and, due to it's efficiency, requires no heatsink. It will work with most batteries/battery packs that are between 7-36V so it's great for 12V car batteries, 8xAA battery packs, and so on.

Alongside this is an integrated microcontroller (MCU) chip which will manage soft shut down functionality and a true low power deep sleep state and intelligent startup.

You will be able to always keep track of the charge levels and other info with the two built-in RGB LEDs, trigger events and scripts with the three programmable buttons and since the PiJuice will use up to just five of your GPIO pins (just power and I2C), the rest are free to diversify your project.

The Raspberry Pi is a fantastically powerful, small and cute computer. Ideal for portable, battery powered applications. But it’s not designed for battery power! For example, the Raspberry Pi Model 3B does not have a direct battery input and consumes around 500mA of current during normal operation. Put another way, if you provide it with a regulator to use batteries, typical AA battery packs will only give you a couple of hours use (see the Raspberry Pi Battery Life Calculator). The sleepy Pi has a prototyping area and set of expansion headers so that you can easily plug in extra circuitry, like the forthcoming range of “blankets”

The Lumenati line of LED boards is designed to give your projects an edge in their lighting capacity. Based on the APA102C addressable LED, these LEDs employ a 2-wire communication protocol consisting of a clock line and a data line. While this requires one more wire than standard WS2812B addressable LEDs, the advantage is that the communication with the LEDs becomes somewhat timing independent, allowing you to run these directly off of a Raspberry Pi or other single-board computer that doesn’t normally allow for a long, precicely-timed data stream without the use of additional hardware.
