Raspberry Pi Roundup - 25th November 2015


Magazine Raspberry Pi Geek has published online their review of the new Touchscreen from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. They are generally positive about it and provide a lot of detail as to how to use it in various ways. Read the review here.


Tony Dicola over at Adafruit has published a tutorial which takes you through the steps needed to create a motion-sensor controlled security camera which uploads photographs to Dropbox so they can be viewed from anywhere in the world. They’ve even included a hinged, 3D-printed enclosure for the set-up. Read the tutorial here


Carrie Anne Philbin has been very busy recently with her Raspberry Pi Foundation duties. Now she’s back in her guise as the creator of the Geek Gurl Diaries videos!

Her new video tutorial takes you through from connecting up the SenseHAT to having the movement sensors on the HAT trigger a behaviour on the LED matrix to create an ‘interactive pet’. She also covers the design of your ‘pet’ using various tools and coding everything up in Python 3.

It’s a great tutorial, as we’ve come to expect from Carrie Anne, and well worth looking at if you own a SenseHAT or if you’re thinking of buying one.

You can watch the video on YouTube.
