Top 10 Coolest Raspberry Pi Projects

Raspberry Pi turned 4 years old! It’s a tiny $35 computer that’s turned the world of computing on its head! You can do so much with a tiny computer these days and you don’t need a huge budget! In fact, they’ve sold over 8 million of these things, and that makes it the UK’s all time best selling computer! It’s been to the International Space Station, and they show teachers how to use them so teachers and students can use them together!

The brand new Pi 3 is the first 64 bit version and you get integrated WiFi and Bluetooth instead of having to add it in after the fact. And they’ve stayed true to their $35 price tag.

So… what can you DO with the Raspberry Pi? Here are the Top 10 coolest things other people have done to get an idea and draw a little bit of inspiration…

Apparently it's National Siblings Day! It's amazing how different sisters can be! Yet at the same time, the same.

My sisters keep me grounded. They keep me on my toes. They're there for me when I need to scream. They're there to celebrate successes.

My mom told us... No matter what happens in life, you four stick together. And so we have. Even when we want nothing to do with each other, we always come back to each other.

I love my sisters, Ariane Petrucci, +Fielding Shaw DeCoursey and +Christina Safford!

So... How about your siblings? I want to know about your family... Leave a comment and share a picture below!

Made homemade pasta sauce today. I love this recipe! Trying to eat healthier and cut out most of the sugars and processed foods.

Sooo easy and much better than store bought! Picture: spinach fettuccine with my sauce.

Just get a couple big cans of crushed tomatoes, add onion (I sauté them first), garlic, basil and Oregano. Cook in a 325 degree oven for a few hours. Done!

BTW, you can cook less time, but the longer it's in, the better it gets!

It’s the Whiteboard Notebook Showdown!
(repost - put the wrong video in before LOL!)

So…it’s been officially determined that my superhero power is writing straight on whiteboards. I’m not sure it’s a useful superhero skill. I might rather be able to be invisible or grow limbs back or something cool like that… but I’ll take what I can get!!

I have two whiteboards in my office. My UpDesk has a whiteboard surface. Whiteboards are my life! I love them and am a bit… okay maybe overly… possessive about them. I have been known to steal David Foster’s whiteboard when he isn’t looking. Sorry, David!

So when Rick Yaeger told me about whiteboard notebooks… I about lost my mind! In fact, I did lose my mind because I went and bought three different kinds so I could see which was the best!

These are a great way to save paper and reuse thesame notebook over and ... more »

So…it’s been officially determined that my superhero power is writing straight on whiteboards. I’m not sure it’s a useful superhero skill. I might rather be able to be invisible or grow limbs back or something cool like that… but I’ll take what I can get!!

I have two whiteboards in my office. My UpDesk has a whiteboard surface. Whiteboards are my life! I love them and am a bit… okay maybe overly… possessive about them. I have been known to steal David Foster’s whiteboard when he isn’t looking. Sorry, David!

So when Rick Yaeger told me about whiteboard notebooks… I about lost my mind! In fact, I did lose my mind because I went and bought three different kinds so I could see which was the best!

These are a great way to save paper and reuse the same notebook over and over again. And to take them on the go. You don’t have to rely on pen and paper anymore!

I bought three kinds.

- The Wipebook (http://amzn.to/1QJZmBS)

How To Make a Name for Yourself in an Oversaturated Market

How do you make a name for yourself in an oversaturated market?

THIS is an excellent question, and one many people struggle with! You are not alone! There’s SO much noise online. So many people talking and sharing and getting in the way of YOU getting to your customers. 

So how do you separate yourself and make a name for yourself in an oversaturated market? 

I answer Ant Pruitt’s question on today’s Q&A!

Top 10 Coolest Raspberry Pi Projects

Raspberry Pi turned 4 years old! It’s a tiny $35 computer that’s turned the world of computing on its head! You can do so much with a tiny computer these days and you don’t need a huge budget! In fact, they’ve sold over 8 million of these things, and that makes it the UK’s all time best selling computer! It’s been to the International Space Station, and they show teachers how to use them so teachers and students can use them together!

The brand new Pi 3 is the first 64 bit version and you get integrated WiFi and Bluetooth instead of having to add it in after the fact. And they’ve stayed true to their $35 price tag.

So… what can you DO with the Raspberry Pi? Here are the Top 10 coolest things other people have done to get an idea and draw a little bit of inspiration…

Top 10 Raspberry Pi Creations
And by the way… I can’t decide in which order these should go. They’re all so great, I just couldn’t put one above the other, so this is in no particular order. You’ll have to decide FOR me in the comments! Be sure to chime in!

#10: Raspberry Pi Connect 4 Robot
Do you remember the Connect 4 game? I loved that when I was kid! Well, now you can play against a Rasberry Pi! This comes from Pi and Chips.co.uk. He used the Pi, along with a MeArm kit and some other pieces and servos to create a very worthwhile opponent! He may be a little slower than you and I, but you can’t rush brilliance!

#9: Bicycle Computer
David Schneider from IEEE took a regular ol’ kindle….attached a Pi with WiFi and GPS, and turned it into a touchscreen bike computer for monitoring your speed, distance and navigation. I love this because all the bike displays on the market are so small. Just don’t crash your bike or the Kindle goes with…

#8: Artificial Pancreas
How about helping a medical problem? Dana and Scott created the DIY Pancreas. Dana has diabetes and using this “closed loop” pancreas, using a Rasberry Pi, it’s able to not only keep an eye on her insulin levels, but also issues commands to her insulin pump while she’s asleep to keep her levels steady… without her waking up.

#7: Mouse Trap
How about a mouse trap that doesn’t hurt or kill them and you can release back into the wild? This thing is a box. Once the mouse goes in, it releases a door that traps them inside, then… get this… it takes a picture and texts you that you have a mouse and shows you the picture!

#6: Magic Mirror
How about this mirror that tells you “you look especially amazing today”. This is the Magic Mirror. You know how you’ve seen mirrors that show you the weather and news feeds? Well, those are freakin’ expensive! This is a hack that lets you do it yourself!

#5: 3D Scanner
This is really cool! A full 3D scanner using 40 Rasberry Pies and 40 Pi cameras. They also had 40 SD cards, a couple power supplies, and LED strips. It’ll scan a person or thing and they used Shapeways to print it in full color.

#4: Barrel Arcade Machine
Matt Shaw turned a wine barrel into a Rasberry Pi powered arcade machine. Yes. Yes he did. It’s using PiPlay, which is an OS for gaming and emulation. He mounted the monitor in the barrel with some glass over it. The controls are attached to the side. It’s pure awesome.

#3: Doctor Who K-9
If you’re a Doctor Who fan, sit down. I mean… seriously… sit down. On the floor. Cause you’re gonna want to pet and hang out with the K9 from Richard Hopkins. Its ears and tail move – driven by servos. He used Node-RED to control the monitor aka the eyes. and there’s a monitor on the side for communication. The Rasberry Pi and camera are behind his eyes. I want.

#2: Baby Monitor
Parents, you’ll love this one. Baby Monitor detects crying while your baby is in the other room supposed to be sleeping. The Pi needs the Prota OS with Speech and a couple apps and voila – a baby monitor! It’ll also put your baby back to sleep if you want by playing music when it starts to cry. So you may not need to go in the room every few minutes. Just let the computer take over. It’s okay…

#1: Wall Mounted Calendar
And… of course this one really gets me! You know how much I love my calendars, right? Like…over the top obsessed with my 23 Google Calendars… but that’s another story altogether! This is a Rasberry Pi with WiFi, and LCD screen and some other stuff that’ll display your calendar, the weather, and whatever else you want within reason. I love this one!

So what do YOU think? Leave a comment - what are your top 3 favorites???___

There are SO many social networks! You can choose Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pintrest, Snapchat, Vine, etc, etc. But you don’t possibly have the TIME to spend on all of them… right? Which should you choose? Which should you spend YOUR valuable time on?

I've been a huge fan of Google+ and Twitter for MY business. The question is....

Who is Your Customer?
The first question you have to answer is "who is my customer, and where are they hanging out"?

If you don't know the answer to that, you'll be spinning your wheels in the social stratosphere and you will get NOWHERE! So stop doing that.

If you haven't created your "customer avatar", you need to figure that out FIRST!

If you haven't created your "customer avatar", you need to figure that out FIRST! 

Then Choose Your Platforms
Once you know WHO your customer is, THEN, and only then, can you choose the most effective social networks to spend your time on.

Is your customer into the latest and greatest technology? They'll probably be on the newer, most "of the moment" networks. If your customer is older or not very tech savvy, it's not as important to be on those fancy new networks unless they become mainstream and your audience DOES go to those platforms.

You have to decide whether you need to be a social butterfly or more mainstream. After you decide that, then you can choose platforms.___
