Raspberry Pi

Hello everyone I wanted some suggestions from the users of raspberry pi on where to start after getting the raspberry pi. I've searched the web and found a lot of things, but they weren't exactly beginners friendly. I am upgrading from an Arduino to a Raspberry pi and the difference between them is enormous. Arduino seemed a lot more welcoming and easier compared to Raspberry pi. So do you guys have some tips or places to start from for me? Any help is appreciated. Thank You

The Sounds of Pi

This is a rather interesting website... It converts the first 10,000 digits of pi into sounds.Here is the website!It will come up with some keys. You then select a note for 1's, then one for 2's, then one for 3's, and so forth. It's hard for me to explain, just give it a shot. There are instructions on the website.

Pi Calculator?

Hello all. I was at school this one day, and I asked some stupid question about Pi to my math teacher. He eventually told the class about how, when he was in school, the school got a computer, and hired a programmer to program it to calculate Pi. And it just kept on spitting out numbers. And it never stopped. NEVER! So, he would come in and look every day to see if it had figured out Pi. And all through his schooling, it didnt. I was just wondering, first of all, how would you make a program that keeps on spitting out numbers (pi) and NEVER stops? I mean, I have yet to see anything that can actually keep on calculating and NEVER EVER stop. Secondly, is there a program (.exe) that will do that? Just a simple command window that spits out numbers.. 3.14159 is what i know.. and i dont know if thats ever right! :P Anyway, I basically want something like what I described. I will put it on this old laptop I have and let it run. Probably under my desk or something. So.. yeah. Now, REPLY!! :) THANKS! :) :D :P :D :) :D :P :)

Pi Problems

I am trying to write a program that calculates pi. I am doing it in Visual C++. I am using the Gregory-Leibniz series. My problem is that I cannot figure out how to do the division necessary. It isn't returning decimals. For example, 4/3 returns 1, and 1/2 is returning 0. Is it even possible to get it to return decimals? I've tried using int, float and short as the answer variable and none worked.

How to Remember Pi!

This nifty poem I created is called a "piem", a pi poem. I only made a poem for the first 10 digits, but you can make more. For example, the first word has 3 letters, representing the # 3. The second has 1 letter, representing the # 1. et cetera. Here is one I made up:    For a week a broke belittled he person aided all. Notice the coinciding #s: 3     1    4    1    5          9        2       6         5     3  -->  3.141592653 --> the first 10 digits of pi.

Raspberry Pi Composite?

I have built the Ben Heck portable Raspberry Pi.  I had it working, but then I bumped the case and after that, the video will not start up.  My wiring to the monitor is all still good, and I know that it is getting power.  The only thing is, that during the bump, the video data and ground cables may have shorted.  Could this have caused the problem?  Whether it did or not, can anybody please help me fix it?

Is this possible with the Raspberry Pi?

So I have recently purchased a Raspberry Pi and I finally go the time to mess around with it a little bit.  So far i have only installed the NOOBS software and have downloaded the recommended Raspian operating system, and have been using it as a desktop computer.  That is all I have done so far.  So I have an idea of something i want to create with the Pi.  I also have the camera module for the Pi and I'd like to put it to use.  I would like to have the Pi, with the camera module attached and operating, in one location, with a monitor of some sort, possibly a cell phone or just a display i would purchase, and have the camera wirelessly send the video feed to the monitor.  I'm assuming this is possible because i have seen instructables on here where people use the Pi to make security cameras. My idea is similar, just none of the ibles i found quite hit the idea on the head.  So, i guess i'm looking for someone to tell me if this is possible, and point me in the direction of how to go about doing this, or if there are any ibles on here that are exactly this that I have missed. Thanks

Arduino or Raspberry Pi?

Well I am a 16 year old High School student interested in engineering and things of that sort. I recently took an engineering class at my school and was thoroughly pleased with the concepts. My father is also an engineer, and would like me to dive deeper into these sorts of things. Being a long time Instructables  user I came here to seek guidance. Most of the Instructables of recent times have used Arduino and/or Raspberry Pi. I would like to learn more about these tools and what they are used for. Which one do you think is better, easier to use, and/or faster to learn.

Sciences PI Plate

Hi every ones, I'm a young engenner in plant biotechnology. On my free time i try to create an open source plate for the Raspberry pi which has lots of functionality very usefull for science project (Plant growing, Invitro cell, hydroponic control, compotemental study...) I'm really a beginer in electronics, but i read a lot electronic book, looking schematic and see video. This plate have : -8x relay 220V 5A control by a Darlington Array -8x Analog input -4x BNC connector connect to 4 Atlas Scientific Stamp (Ph, EC, DO...) -RTC clock (to be sure of time when data are store on database) -LCD screen 16x2 to facilite the reading without computer -This project will come with backend/frontend distribution Before i order all parts and PCB, i wondering if you be able to check my schematic to validate it and maybe improve it  :P Schematic Image files (2Mo) Fritzing file FZZ I have few question too  : 1/ Can i connect all my ICs and LCD to my external power supply, i read on internet this is better than connect on the 5V from the Raspberry PI? 2/ If i connect all 5V on my external supply how many amps i have to provide (the sum of all amps require by parts)? 3/ Do you know an I2C IC can replace the 74HC4052 to make all the plate in I2C and made it usable by more than a Raspberry PI ? (if it interesting) 4/ Which width is recommand for the wire on my pcb 24 mil (or smaller), and for the 220V Relay the biggest ?? Thanks you for your help, and your website ! Regards Erwan

Raspberry PI power?

Hey yall! I just recently bought a Raspberry Pi! Those of you who want to order know how hard this is, so Im pretty excited because i didnt think Id b able to order for awhile. Anywho, I wnat to make or buy a portable power supply for it, but I am not sure how to go about doing that. I know there are tons of portable CHARGERS out there for iphones and what not, but I am afriad these will attempt to "charge" my PI, therfore frying the board. Do they just supply power and the device recognizes power being recieved, so it displays charging? And I will be attachin a BUNCH of things via a usb hub to the Pi, so I doubt regular bunch of 4 rechargeable AAs will pwer my device for long with all thse extrra things drawing power. So my question is 3fold: can I buy one of those portable chargers to power my Pi or will it fry it? will 4 AAs be enough to power the Pi and all the extra usb things? and will it be more cost efficient to make a power supply? (I definetely want it be rechargeable, though). Any links to products, or guides to make one would be extremely helpful. Thanks in advance!!! Also, I already have a wall supply, but I need a power supply that is portable.

arduino or rasberry pi ? Answered

Forgive me,i am new to arduino and rasberry  pi. I am deeply interested in building CNC's,3D Printers,Quad Copter's..... So a little research showed that we need arduino which would act like the control unit for this very purpose . But i have also come across some people who use parallel ports to control the machine (the processing is done on a computer) ""PS:- I might be wrong"". So if the parallel ports can indeed be used for all these without a arduino in between  ,wouldn't it  be better to get a "rasberry pi"  and  "USB to parallel port converter "    The advantages i am seeing are: less cost more processing power probably easily programmable Cons: we can get a lot of modules like (wireless......) which is made especially for an arduino

I am hoping to make a store similiar to playstore or app store so that advanced programmers can also make a small amount for exceptional products. the idea is huge but could be beneficial to several thousand people including users of this forum in helping them with techniques and skills they have not yet mastered. the project is HUGE and the mechanical side is largely done with the exception of a few parts that are added extra. other inclusions will be safety features and high perfomance. for those that are interested in this AND have coding experience I look forward to your replies on this topic

Raspberry Pi 24/7 Panda Cam

So I'm trying to make a birthday present for my girlfriend and something for her new apartment. She loves pandas and loves to watch the 24 hour live panda cams at the Smithsonian National Zoo. So I came across the idea of using a raspberry pi and a digital photo frame monitor to give a live feed of the pandas 24/7. Only problem is, I didn't realize Rasbian doesn't support Adobe Flash and there's no way to view the feed. Does anyone know if ARM Linux would support the feed. Or have another completely different take on a way to tackle this project? I want it pretty seamless so all see has to do it plug in the power supply and maybe an Ethernet cable and the rest be taken care of with a python script or something similar. I program for a living as well have a degree in Electrical Engineering so even if its complicated let me have it. I appreciate your help. Thanks!
