The Vintage Computer Festival in Wall, New Jersey doesn’t just attract locals; [Oscar] came all the way from Switzerland to show off his PiDP-8/I. It’s a miniature minicomputer, emulated in SimH, with blinkenlights and toggle switches...Show More Summary
If you’re a fan of video game systems of yesteryear then you are probably familiar with RetroPie. For those who aren’t, RetorPie is a collection of software and video game emulators that can run on a Raspberry Pi. The package makes it...Show More Summary
My favorite DIY projects are ones that an idiot like myself can do in a few days. To wit, this Raspberry Pi laptop that lets you create a portable computer with keyboard and mouse with only a few parts. The project uses the PiJuice battery module and a 5-inch TFT module. Show More Summary
We’ve seen some cool portable Raspberry Pi projects, but they’re all pretty complex. Instructables user PiJuice takes a much simpler approach, using just five standard parts to take their Pi on the go. Read more...
[James J. Guthrie] just published a rather formal announcement that his 4-node Raspberry Pi cluster greatly outperforms a 64-node version. Of course the differentiating factor is the version of the hardware. [James] is using the Raspberry Pi 2 while the larger version used the Model B. We covered that original build almost three years ago. Show More Summary
We test four of the leading Single Board Computers to see which is the best one: Raspberry Pi 2 vs ODROID C1 vs HummingBoard vs MIPS Creator CI20.

DIY weather stations are a cool way to monitor the weather in your area for a super accurate look at what’s happening directly around you. Instructables user kkingsbury shows off how you can build your own powered by a Raspberry Pi. Read more...
Madis Projects were booked for a challenging time lapse project. They needed to take a time lapse of a construction site for a long duration and their previous project using a gopro was not satisfactory. They also needed a 15 minutes interval, endless photo storage, remote management and web uploads. What did they do? They built a lean [...]Show More Summary
We’re not sure if the Chickens know it yet, but they could be one of the reasons for all this IoT craze now a days. Look for chicken coop, and out come dozens of posts from the Hackaday chest. Here’s another one from self confessed lazy engineer [Eric]. Show More Summary
[madis] has been working on time lapse rigs for a while now, and has gotten to the point where he has very specific requirements to fill that can’t be done with just any hardware. Recently, he was asked to take time lapse footage ofShow More Summary
Conventional wisdom says small, powerful embedded Linux like the Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, or the Intel Edison are inherently manufactured devices, and certainly not something the homebrew tinkerer can produce at home. [hak8or] is doing...Show More Summary
The list of cool stuff you can do with a Raspberry Pi is pretty much endless (no seriously — Wi-Fi controlled pottery kiln!), but most of the existing designs for portable Pi-ing require a little electronics know-how (and a dash of soldering). More »
If you are interested in local wildlife, you may want to consider this wildlife camera project. [Arnis] has been using his to film foxes and mice. The core components of this build are a Raspberry Pi and an infrared camera module specifically made for the Pi. Show More Summary

The renaissance of self-reliance has brought about such things as a flood of creative ideas on Pinterest, Arduino projects, popular YouTube DIY Channels, and the Raspberry Pi movement. But why should grown-ups have all the fun? KidsShow More Summary
You wouldn’t think of it to look at it, but with a little bit of ingenuity and a lot of time, the Raspberry Pi can make a pretty decent little DIY smartphone. Instructables user Mach_5 shows you how to do it. Read more...
We’ve seen a laptop and a tablet that are both powered by the Raspberry Pi. Tyler Spadgenske completes the gadget trinity with the Tyfone, a 2G cellphone based on the versatile computer. The Tyfone has a…
The Raspberry Pi made experimenting with computing hardware and software more accessible to millions, and now a new project wants to take that concept further with an even smaller developer board that runs full Linux and has built-in Wi-Fi, all on a circuit board just 1/4 of the size of the Raspberry Pi.
