Two Harry Potter projects and a bomb disposal robot in today's Raspberry Pi Roundup

Two Harry Potter projects and a bomb disposal robot in today's Raspberry Pi Roundup

The Daily Prophet Piet Rullens Jr visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and brought back loads of video footage. He wanted to do something special with the footage so he designed a copy of the Wizarding World’s Daily Prophet to be framed. Behind the frame, he mounted a Raspberry Pi official screen and cut a hole in the printed newspaper the exact size of the screen. A bit of scripting and the use of a PIR sensor to detect movement triggers the playing of the video footage. Rather neatly, the frame backs onto a cupboard into which he placed the power supply and drilled a...

A piece of art made from a gun, a BMO replica from Adventure Time and a smart alarm clock in today's Raspberry Pi Roundup

Gun Art Constantine Zlatev, Kostadin Ilov and Velina Ruseva have taken a disabled shotgun and some salvaged industrial components and created a musical instrument. Called The Last Gun, is controlled by a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino and uses compressed air to play different tunes through the barrel of the gun. Determining what is played is done based on a graph of US arms exports from the 1960s to 2010. If the amount of exports rises, the tune becomes more sombre; if the exports fall, a more upbeat tune is played. You can see more pictures on Constantine’s blog here and watch...

Review of a JustBoom audio board, a wooden Jukebox and a tea-brewing machine in today's Raspberry Pi Roundup

Woodwork Jukebox justthatoneotherdude, building on work from auntie-matter, has created a lovely, wooden jukebox with a Raspberry Pi at the centre. There are 5 knobs controlling playlists and volume and the Pi itself is running the Volumio operating system. There are ‘runner’ LEDs in a groove round the edge for...
