Ever wanted to build you own cellphone? Well now you can with this guide that uses a Raspberry Pi, PiTFT, and a FONA to make a functional cellphone that you can call your friends with!
Okay I thought I was just going to write a single post but then I found a site well worth a visit!
web developer • ui designer • writer • speaker • list maker
What blew my socks away was following a link on her site to a plugin she has developed. The plugin is called Draw Attention and it is brilliant.
A WordPress plugin for creating interactive images
I have just spent a day to code up an interactive image map and it is long and boring work. Look at what Natalie has created! Watch the video:
I am enjoying watching the plugin in action and as soon as I can – which might be very soon I will be buying a copy for the websites I developed. I am currently building one for the Bodmin Dragon’s Ability Football Club and this plugin would help with identifying team members etc.
Brilliant Natalie. Love the plugin!
Short and sweet post today. I cannot believe the timing of this. I was just looking at the big fat cable that winds around our bedroom 20 times over before heading back into the Raspberry Pi. It is huge. And look at what the boys at PiHut have produced. From their website:
Want to still have access to your Raspberry Pi GPIO pins when using your Official Raspberry Pi Touchscreen? Tired of messy wires? We have the solution!
We love the Raspberry Pi touchscreen but we hate having to blocking our GPIO pins! That’s why we had these lovely little cables custom made!
It’s just 7cm long and capable of providing a full 5V to your Raspberry Pi, directly from the official touchscreen’s USB port! The cable is the exact length needed – no more messy wiring!
And here is one for Abi and me to do together. I can stand virtual pets so if it never gets done don’t be surprised!
Make your very own interactive pixel pet with this Raspberry Pi Sense HAT tutorial. Learn how to program with python to make a moving pixel avatar that is triggered when you shake the Raspberry Pi. Suitable for beginner coders!
I love this project. I love Doctor Who and I love the Raspberry Pi. Combining the two is brilliant and I bet his son loves it.
My son wanted to try out the Dalek with the new Web interface. He seems to have figured it out with no problem. The drive components are not standing up to continued use so next year I will be upgrading it to use an old mobility scooter. You can see build pictures and more at Ostafichuk Raspberry Pi Projects
