If you’ve ever used a Raspberry Pi you’ll notice that it’s great until you need to unplug it. While you can add a battery (the PiPhone had one), it’s not quite as easy as all that. Now, however, you can simply plug in the PiJuice and power your Pi on the fly. The PiJuice is a “hat” that fits on top of the Raspberry Pi and includes a 1400 mAh battery,… Read More
Three years on, and five million boards later, I look back at some of my favourite Pi-powered projects we've featured here on the blog. Read more on MAKE
A look at the affordable and surprisingly powerful computer.
The Spark Electron was released a few days ago, giving anyone with the Arduino IDE the ability to send data out over a GSM network. Of course, the Electron is just a GSM module tied to a microcontroller, and you can do the same thing...Show More Summary

In this project the Raspberry Pi with the PiCam is used as a wireless camera which can transmit images over long distances, usually hundreds of meters! Images are transmitted by amateur radio (ham radio) using slow scan television (SSTV) on the 2 meter band (144.5MHz). Thanks to Oliver Mattos and […] Read more on MAKE
