How to Add Alexa to a Raspberry Pi (Or Any Linux Device) – IoT For All (blog)

How to Add Alexa to a Raspberry Pi (Or Any Linux Device) IoT For All (blog) DataArt developed an open solution that allows turning any Linux-based device into an Amazon Echo device. Since Raspberry Pi is the most popular board for IoT projects, we decided to use it in our setup. But basically, any Linux system can run the demo

Royal Institution Christmas Lectures: sneak peek

As you’ll know if you’ve been reading recently, you’ll know we’re sponsoring this year’s Royal Institution Christmas Lectures. The lectures are broadcast this year on BBC4 at 8pm on December 29, 30 and 31 – and we’ve got a sneak peek for you today. First up, here’s a Tetris clone, being played on the side of a towerblock (yes, a Raspberry Pi was involved in the making of this demo): And a mixed robot/human orchestra playing the Dr Who theme

Triviabox: a DIY quiz show setup

Sandy Walsh thought it’d be cool to host a trivia night in his living room. Most of us would make do with paper, biros and shouting: but it’s from little ideas like this that splendidly grandiose Raspberry Pi projects are born. In this case , projects involving a shipment of Chinese bike handles and a very large amount of speaker wire

LinuxCon keynote

The video of Eben’s LinuxCon keynote has just been made available: enjoy. If you’re one of those people who watches everything we do (we know you are out there, and you fascinate, delight and horrify us in equal measure), you’ll be familiar with most of the first 9 minutes or so. Scroll past that for the juicy stuff

Flag-waving, without use of arm muscles

Eben met Alex from RasPi.tv earlier this week, and was given this rather fantastic flag-waving kit for our demo table. (If you’ve got something you think we could use in demos at schools, in talks, and when we chat to the press, give me a shout at liz@raspberrypi.org – we’re always looking for new kit to show off.) This demo is something you can very easily set up yourself at home, if you’re interested in learning how to use servos. Alex’s setup means you won’t require any expansion boards – you’ll be ready to go with just a servo (very cheap from your local electronics shop – Alex’s cost him £3), some wire, some batteries and a few bits of wood.

Meltwater’s RGB LED libraries lesson

Meltwater (of MagPi fame) has been working on some affordable teaching add-ons for the Pi. He’s demonstrating what you can do with one of his little kits with this natty tutorial where you’ll be creating your own Python library, and using it to do some low-level control of the GPIO
