Using a Raspberry Pi to do augmented-reality projections
Taking what I've learned about LED color mixing and Python, along with our LumiDrive LED Driver and LuMini LED Ring, I set out to create a light ring for macro photography that surpasses all others.
Last week, we took a look at using the digital pins on our new LumiDrive LED Driver. This week, we'll play with the analog pins, and see if we can't put something together using both!
Pretty quiet around here at 7 a.m. Maybe I can whip up a quick python-fueled, Pi-based bot? Oh, yeah - hot glue features prominently in this build.
Let's face it, as much as we love Arduino, there are some things it just can't do. To branch out, let's take a look at a little bit of Python.
Our newest (sorta-Python-related) tutorial shows you a few ways to run a script whenever a Raspberry Pi boots up.
In the latest Python tutorial series, we look at loading MicroPython onto six different microcontroller development boards.
We've updated our popular "Raspberry Pi SPI and I2C Tutorial" with some Python examples.
If you're looking to make your own dashboard or slick graphical interface, Python can help you out with the Tkinter package.
Whether you are teaching a class or want to create a dashboard to plot sensor data, the matplotlib Python package has you covered! We introduce a new guide that walks you through the basics of using matplotlib.
A new tutorial to help beginners control hardware with Python.
A quick look at the default IDEs that come with the Raspbian for developing Python applications.
Using the Mind Wave Mobile+, Mort and I created a mind-controlled IoT...solution (?) with sockets, of course!
