The Raspberry Pi Zero might be the smallest of the bunch, but you can also slim down a Pi 2 or Pi 3 pretty easily if you need that extra CPU but not the components. Node shows you how.
We know you can turn a Raspberry Pi into a cheap surveillance system and that displaying images on a small screen is no problem either. Adafruit combined all this together with some sensors to create a system where you can monitor the camera and data on one Raspberry Pi from another Raspberry Pi.
Making a little DIY Amazon Echo-like device with a Raspberry Pi is a great project, but one of the downsides is that it requires a button to trigger the service to listen to you. Instructables user MisterM’s solution was to make that button an old telephone.
If you’ve been toying around with the Raspberry Pi for a while, you’ve likely come across the rainbow coloured splash screen before. There’s a good chance you’ve also seen the more curious version of that, the same rainbow pattern, shrunk down and flashing in the corner of your screen. Here’s what they mean.
One of the best new features of the Raspberry Pi 3 is its on-board Bluetooth, but while the software needed to get it working is easy to install, it might be a bit baffling to use. Element14 has a guide to working with Bluetooth from Raspbian.
Turning a Raspberry Pi into a motion sensing security camera is a classic Pi project, but Microsoft’s put together a bit of a spin on the classic by showing off how to build one using Windows IoT.
