Robert Coggeshall (Sudo Bob) has taken a 50-year old teletype unit and resurrected it, thanks to the Raspberry Pi and a few other electronic components. You can read about the build and find out more here.
Alex Eames has shot a video in which he measures the power consumption of the Model A+, the Model B+ and the Model A doing various tasks (idling, starting up the desktop, watching video and shooting video with the camera). It’s an interesting watch. For those of you who don’t want to watch the entire video, he’s also provided a summary table. Read more and watch the video here. It really shows the low power consumption of the A+, which makes it ideal for battery-powered and embedded projects where power is at a premium.
Matt Hawkins has now reached 150 blog posts and to celebrate this, he’s written a three-part guide to creating a video capture unit using a Raspberry Pi, suitable for mounting to your dashboard or bike. You can read the first part hereand find subsequent parts here.
