It’s Easter Monday, a public holiday here in the UK, and Pi Towers is still and silent. Even the continuous flight augering piler on the massive building site next door is, for a time, quiet. So here is the briefest of posts, to share with you a Raspberry Pi cam live-streaming from a blue tit nest in Alan McCullagh ‘s parents’ garden in Kilkenny, Ireland
The ocular fundus is the interior surface of the eye, and an ophthalmologist can learn a lot about a patient’s health by examining it. However, there’s a problem: an ocular fundus camera can’t capture a useful image unless the eye is brightly lit, but this makes the pupil constrict, obstructing the camera’s view.

London-based Solid State Group decided to combine Slack with a giant LED wall, and created a thing of beauty for their office. “BUILD THE WALL we cried aloud
Have you ever fancied building a Raspberry Pi photo booth?
Walk around the commons of Cambridge and you’re bound to see one or more of the Cambridge University Quidditch Club players mounted upon sticks with a makeshift quaffle. But try as they might, their broomsticks will never send them soaring through the air
On 1-2 April, Cambridge Raspberry Jam will be hosting Pi Wars 2017 , the latest iteration of their successful robotics challenge competition. For those unfamiliar with the setup, Pi Wars contestants use home-brew Raspberry Pi-powered robots to compete across seven challenge courses. There’s also a host of other categories, including prizes for Artistic and Technical Merit, as well as an award for ‘Funniest Robot’! With only a few days to go until the big weekend, we’ve wrangled Pi Wars 2017 hosts, Mike and Tim, to give us the lowdown on everything you need to know before the main event

Allen Pan has wired up his home automation system to be controlled by memorable tunes from the classic Zelda franchise.
With the JavaWatch system from Terren Peterson , there’s (Raspberry Pi) ZERO reason for you ever to run out of coffee beans again! By utilising many of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) available to budding developers, Terren was able to create a Pi Zero-powered image detection unit. Using the Raspberry Pi Camera Module to keep tabs on your coffee bean storage, it automatically orders a fresh batch of java when supplies are running low.
