If you are looking for something to bring your cosplay masks, props, or other spooky sculptures to life for your robots, animatronics, or Halloween parties, you can use the snake eyes cowl as a pair of animated eyes. This is an accessory for operating two 128x128 pixel TFT LCD or OLED displays through a single board computer such as the Raspberry Pi (RBPi). It also has four analog sensor inputs. The project started life as a project named Electronic Animated Eyes using the microcontroller Teensy Read more [...]

Audio HAT for the Raspberry Pi Zero

The Raspberry Pi Zero (RBPiZ) and its successor, the Raspberry Pi Zero Wireless (RBPiZW) are very small single board computers. The Pi Foundation wanted to keep their cost and size to the low side, so they did not include either a 3.5 mm audio jack or any other audio port. Although this may seem like a setback for many users, some of them were went ahead and figured out how to get audio out of the board with a little hacking. Another reason for not including an audio port is the Broadcom chipset Read more [...]

PiRyte Mini ATX PSU: Power Your Raspberry Pi

Powering the Single Board Computer, the Raspberry Pi (RBPi) is always simple using the wall-wart type power supply and the micro-USB cable. However, there is always the possibility of accidentally shutting off power to the RBPi without going through the proper shutdown sequence. As the RBPi relies on its micro SD card to store its Operating System and working files, a sudden loss of power is sure to corrupt them and render the RBPi incapable of rebooting in the next session. Additionally, you Read more [...]
