With warm congratulations to a very special pair. May you always find in each other the love, laughter and happiness that only partners in life share!
Fastest online delivery I had ever experienced was with Raspberry Pi Camera from RS Components. I received the package in 3days for a shipment fee of 8 USD.
The setup was very straight forward and simple, just follow the link. A sample shot taken using the camera, it has come out bad that is due to me not fixing the camera properly.
Going to attempt time lapse photography… will keep you posted
Everyday I get lot of ideas for Raspberry Pi. One such is to make it mobile like integrate it with my car. In that case I have to think of alternative power source if my car is not running. Lipo Rider Pro from SeeedStudio came to my rescue.Features
The above pictures shows that how I have implemented the Lipo Rider board for redundant power supply. I am not sure how efficient this will be on the move, so far I am happy that it is doing what it is supposed to do. Sometimes I get a feeling that the battery pack is always being used and it is not getting charged even if the USB power is connected. Have to debug this further
Today I used SainSmart 8 Channel DC 5V Relay to play around. This relay is very easy to use with Arduino / Raspberry Pi.
To play around with the BLE shield I used the iPhone app and the Arduino code mentioned on their website. You should be able to follow the instruction and design your needed circuits to control. In my case the final setup looked something like this
Small video demo to see the above setup in action
Stay tuned for more updates as soon as get time to work on these exciting projects
I have been playing with my Raspberry Pi for couple of weeks now and recently I ran into this issue of low space. Even though I had 8GB memory card it was only partitioned to use 4GB. After Googling for sometime I found there is a built in tool with Raspberry Pi which helps to resize the partition easily ie raspi-config.
Please check if your Raspberry Pi is running on Debian GNU/Linux wheezy/sid
root@raspberrypi:~# cat /etc/*-release
PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNU/Linux wheezy/sid"
# sudo raspi-config
raspi-config will configure Raspberry Pi to resize the partition during next reboot
raspi-config will request to reboot
During reboot process you can see that partition is getting resized
Once reboot is completed you can see more space on your rootfs.
I think this is the best way to resize the partition. No data loss or any special tool required to complete this operation
