  • Raspberry PI and Arduino in industrial environments


    Raspberry PI and Arduino boards are the most famous devices for rapid electronic prototyping and DIY home applications. However, their capabilities and flexibility are still largely under estimated in the industrial environment.


    • ZX Spectrum v Raspberry Pi – The view of an 80’s kid


      At the risk of showing my age, my very first personal computer was the Sinclair ZX81, in the early 1980’s, back in the last century! I can still remember my excitement at getting my hands on this new electronic gadget and being able to play some basic games, and to create some really simple programs such as printing my name over and over again on the my small 12” portable black and white TV screen.

            How do you save a species of animals from possible extinction using Microduino and a Raspberry Pi? That is a challenge that the team at Microduino are hoping that they have answered with their new EggDuino project, aimed to save one of the most infamous birds of prey on the planet.


            • Remote Desktop Client for Raspberry PI IoT now available


              April 1st seems to have its fair share of april fools but amidst all the fun I discovered microsoft has released an Insider preview that now includes a Remote Desktop Client service for the raspberry PI and on the app store is the necessary client to load onto your windows 10 desktop. The desktop can be a Phone, Tablet or PC, it just need to be running windows 10 So I loaded it up and gave it a try... here is the result
