Raspberry Pi Roundup featuring a mini Pi laptop, a sequencer and a network printer server tutorial

Mini laptop Here's a lovely project for those with access to a 3D printer: a laptop using the official 7″ screen for display. Surferboy has uploaded 3D printing files for this project which uses a Pi 3, a Rii keyboard and the official display which is a mini-laptop perfect for taking with you. All it really needs is a battery to make it fully portable! Take a look at the files on Thingiverse. Synth The R-MONO Lab is a ‘recreational club’ based in Hamamatsu, Japan. They’ve taken a Raspberry Pi 3 and put it inside a Roland K-25m, a tiny...

Raspberry Pi Roundup - a spiral speaker, an ESP8266 tutorial and a thermal printing camera

Raspberry Pi Roundup - a spiral speaker, an ESP8266 tutorial and a thermal printing camera

Spiral Speaker Recently, I reviewed the JustBoom AmpHAT and found it to be an excellent piece of kit for those that like their audio ‘just right’. Well, now it’s little brother, the Amp Zero pHAT has been used in a project that looks really lovely. Frederick Vandenbosch has taken the pHAT, a Raspberry Pi Zero, a speaker, and a Pimoroni Scroll pHAT and created a beautiful ‘spiral speaker’ with built-in spectrum display. He’s written the whole thing up as a tutorial and it’s been posted on the Pi Supply blog here. You can view a speeded-up video of the build below. You can get hold of...

Raspberry Pi Roundup: a new robotic arm on Kickstarter, a thumb-played harp and micro:bits and Raspberry Pi used together

New Robotic Arm At The Pi Hut, we really love the MeArm robotic arm. We've been selling it for ages. That's why we're really happy to support the latest version, which is specific to the Raspberry Pi, now available on Kickstarter. Let's give you a bit of background... A couple of years ago, Ben Gray ran a highly successful Kickstarter campaign for the MeArm – a robotic arm. Now, he’s teamed up with Ben Pirt to form Mime Industries and to run a Kickstarter for the next generation of the MeArm – and as we said before, it's specifically designed to work with...

Raspberry Pi Roundup with a home appliance monitor, a Rubik's cube solver and a trip to a Scouts camp

Raspberry Pi Roundup with a home appliance monitor, a Rubik's cube solver and a trip to a Scouts camp

Good vibrations Here’s a good little tutorial I found on GitHub. It uses an 801s vibration module and a Raspberry Pi Zero to detect vibrations from a home appliance, such as a washing machine. If it detects stillness for a specified amount of time, the appliance is assumed to have finished running and a tweet is sent to let you know. It’s a nice combination of hardware and software and can be found here on GitHub. The cube... of Rubik Francesco Georg has used a Raspberry Pi, a Camera Module, LEGO bricks, some EV3 motors and a BrickPi add-on board to...
