New iteration of the LifeBox: the controller panel

Here it is the new iteration of the LifeBox: an Arduino based control panel with 5 beautiful configurable rotary angle controllers allowing to change the behaviour of the species in real time whitout touching the code! Current C code is

Robot car with Raspberry Pi Camera

This is the robot car we are building with Jordi Binefa for the Raspberry Jam Barcelona, inspired on this project from dawnrobotics. The idea is to build a robot car with Raspberry Pi and Picam, that can be controlled via web or

How to build a weather station (II): Using electronics.cat boards.

One of the biggests issues of the weather station prototype was the physical connection between Raspberry Pi and Arduino, because I needed to use one annoying USB cable as you can see in this picture: To solve this problem, I

Weather station. Building the cartonboard prototype (II). The components

I’m still working on the weather station prototype and it’s almost done. The only step pending (and very important indeed) in this project is the external design, labels, printings, etc.. In the next post about the weather station I’ll make a

Analog weather station (Raspberry Pi & Arduino working together). Iteration 1

Based on http://projectlog.ferranfabregas.info/using-firmata-to-share-information-between-arduino-and-raspberry-pi/ , http://projectlog.ferranfabregas.info/sending-weather-data-via-twitter-using-rasbperry-pi-and-dht22/ and thanks to Jordi Binefa and their boards I have the very first version of the analog weather station. This is the version that we will show on next Hardware Freedom Day in Barcelona. Tweet

Using firmata to share information between Arduino and Raspberry Pi

Testing firmata to control Arduino Servos to show Raspberry Pi generated data. With this setup you can use Arduino servo as indicator of the amount of light recived by a photoresistor connected to Raspberry Pi board. Some resources to install

Using IKEA kitchen timer as 360º time-lapse panoramic device

Some time ago I made a 360º panoramic mobile camera stand for time-lapses using Arduino micro. It works good, but have some issues using 360º continuous servo as a rotation device so I tried a new concept: Use an Ikea

Minecraft image renderer goes bigger thanks to Raspberry Juice

Minecraft Pi is great, but is very limited due their process capability, so I tried to improve the minecraft image renderer script using the Minecraft linux version (1.7.9), a Minecraft server (Bukkit or Canary mod, but Bukkit is unavailable now

Computer vision, OpenCV, Raspberry Pi, Webcams and CSI Raspicam

Before start talking about the installation of openCV in a Raspberry Pi its important to clarify something: If you use a regular USB camera attached to the Raspberry Pi, the installation is basically the same as any other debian like distribution.
