I read a lot of tuts about circle management etc. Started over a few times (bad habit), but it didn’t really worked out for me.I tried to get a number of people interested in Google+ by demonstrating it on the screen. I noticed how confused they were.So I started over with my circle management again, now with a different approach. I took all my interests in my daily live, converted them into interest circles. When I demonstrate Google+ to people now, I don’t see those confused looks anymore, must done something right here.Most Google+ users keep there circle management for themselves (I noticed). I’m going to do the opposite here, I’m gonna share more than 40 interest circles, handpicked (except the Galaxy Nexus circle and the Chromebook circle, these are started by others shared circles).2012-02-28 22:25:3698000CC G+

Learn to program the ATtiny85 from your Raspberry Pi
http://adafru.it/b109749

instructables user prb3333 posted this useful tutorial on programming the ATtiny85 with your Pi.

These instructions tell you how to setup and program the ATtiny85 microcontroller from a Raspberry Pi via the SPI interface. Lots of people use the Ardiuno to do this (then you can use the Arduino IDE and simplified C commands), or you can use a USB based programmer. I do not have an Ardiuno and don’t want to buy a dedicated programmer. I do have a Pi, so I was pleased to learn I could use it as a way to get into microcontroller programming.

You will need:

-Raspberry Pi
-ATtiny85 chip
-5 x 1K resistors (or similar)
-LED of your choice
-A connection to the GPIO of the Pi, and a breadboard and wire.

How to use the Raspberry Pi as a Slow Scan Television (SSTV) camera
http://adafru.it/b109891

Agri Vision posted this project using their Raspberry Pi as a SSTV camera.

In this project the Raspberry Pi with the PiCam is used as a wireless camera which can transmit images over long distances, usually tenths of kilometers. Images will be transmitted by amateur radio (ham-radio) using slow scan television (SSTV) on the 2 meter band (144.5 MHz). Since the Pi can generate the HF FM signal itself, no additional electronics are needed for low power transmissions. For a little bit more power a one or two transistor amplifier will be suitable. Furthermore a low pass filter is recommended to filter out higher harmonics of the signal. This project also contains a python script which detects movement. Using this script the Raspberry Pi can be used as a wireless security cam at distances... more »

NEW PRODUCT – USB Micro-B Breakout Board
http://adafru.it/diQ

Simple but effective - this breakout board has a USB Micro-B connector, with all 5 pins broken out. Great for pairing with a microcontroller with USB support, or adding USB 5V power to a project. 

We use a micro-AB connector with through-hole shielding pads for an excellent strong connection - it won't rip off by accident! 

Comes with one fully assembled and tested micro B breakout PCB and a small stick of 0.1" header so you can solder it on and plug into a breadboard.

Check out these useful instructions for your Pi remote desktop from Dave at RaspberryPi.org:

Hi folks;
Allen was just asking me about the VNC demo I gave at Picademy and I thought I would just do a follow up post here for everyone.

Step 1: Setup and install
So the aim will be to install the VNC server software on Pi and the VNC viewer software on the host computer (which will show the Pi desktop).
Read and follow the guide here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/document … access/vnc
The guide includes instructions to make the VNC server start automatically when the Pi boots up (recommended).


-Step 2: If necessary, configure the Pi to give out an IP address

Imperial Pig: A “Star Wars” quiz toy made with Raspberry Pi! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
http://adafru.it/b109913

Carriots riot blog had a development challenge recently and the winner was a team called Ad Ackbar for their adorable quiz toy project. Below are some excerpts from the interview they did. Click here to read the full thing.

Ad Ackbar: At the office someone always starts some quiz competition around geek themes. Discussions often goes far enough to take wikipedia and/or youtube to decide who holds the truth or the final answer.

When Carriots published the Domokun stuffed toy tutorial we take the code, a Raspberry Pi and two speakers just to make our “Imperial pig” play the voice with the final word. The challenge was just the natural way to improve it. We have to put all the electronic stuff in it, solvecommuni... more »

mazzmn in the Element 14 community posted this great project that he made and a tutorial showing how to do one yourself!

I’ve been blogging about my experience in Road Test reviewing the Ultimate Raspberry Pi Bundle. As a part of this Road Test I’m creating a Fridge/Freezer Temperature Alarm system for our local food shelf, Channel 1. You can see where this Road Test started for me here

Background info:
Last Christmas vacation, I volunteered for a local food shelf called Channel One. I was chatting with the warehouse manager and he mentioned that their large freezer and cooler rooms are protected by commercial monitoring systems, but he’d really like a temperature monitor for their walk-in display-case cooler and freezer. The food shelf is closed from Friday Noonuntil... more »

Cook and Hold with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
http://adafru.it/b109236

Sébastien Rinsoz wrote up this great tutorial on how to set up a thermocouple and Raspberry Pi to monitor the temperature of meat cooking in the oven and then emailing you when the meat has reached its ideal temperature.

When we geek try to cook a nice chunk of meat, the tricky part is the cooking itself. Instead of sitting idle while the meat cooks, we go read something on the iPad, code some stuff or even to talk with the guests rather than watching a meat in the oven. And at the end, the meat is often overcooked. But this is gonna change. Our new recipe, using a Yocto-Thermocouple and Raspberry Pi, solves the issue. The Raspberry Pi will monitor the meat temperature for us, and send an e-mail as soon as the ideal temperature is reached. And long life to... more »

Setting Up a Killer Audio/Visual System for Your Office using a Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_pi#piday #raspberrypi
http://adafru.it/b109559

The design blog Betterment has a post about their office set-up design, including how they implemented the Raspberry Pi to install metrics dashboards.

Want to equip your office with metrics dashboards? We’ve found that Raspberry Pi is an excellent tool for clean visuals that you set up in advance. For instance, at DT we created custom dashboards with Dashing, which we then pointed our Raspberry Pis to. With Dashing we set up how often we want the metrics to refresh, and the Raspberry Pi happily displays the information with crisper visuals than the Chromecast.

Why else didn’t we use Chromecast to show our dashboards? Well, a major advantage of Raspberry Pi is that it doesn’t need a designated computer in theoffic... more »

Mike Metral‘s tutorial over at Medium.com grew out of his friend’s super-fan media set-up for viewing March Madness. The tutorial shows you how to build your own sports ticker using a raspberry pi and an LED sign!

_Introduction

I have a good friend named Eric. Eric is the definition of a sports fanatic. His love for sports goes so deep, that he has completely revamped his living room into a mini sports bar equipped with 5 TV’s that are constantly broadcasting a multitude of games across many sports leagues. His knowledge of sports is even more impressive than his setup — we once tested it by having him run through all of the NCAA March Madness champions from memory since 1979 and he only got stumped on 2 of them,earning him... more »

DIY Replica of Joffrey Baratheon’s Crown
http://adafru.it/b109463

Joffrey Baratheon may be a despicable character, but the king does have nice threads. He wears richly embroidered tunics and an intricate crown – it’s understandable if you want to dress like him. Instructables user xeijix came up with a 3D model to print the crown on a PP3D printer. The printer worked on one half of the crown at a time; here’s what he did to assemble them:

After removing the scaffolding, I needed to sand the the crown a bit.

The crown from the show had a lot of textured marks on the crown, I opted not to add those textures. For my purposes, it wasn’t that important.

After sanding, I glued the pieces together with superglue.

I painted the crown with a can of Krylon gold spray paint.

LEGO Bookreader: Digitize books with mindstorms and Raspberry Pi
http://adafru.it/diB

MAKE has posted this fantastic project with a full tutorial. View it here.

Using Lego motors and blocks, the Raspberry Pi, and a BrickPi, we built our own digital book reader out of Legos that can digitize real paper books.

We wanted to develop a book digitizer that could read books aloud. We were fascinated by Google’s Google Books project, and thought “Why couldn’t we do this at home?”

In our first attempt, we tried a proof of concept where we built the BrickPi Bookreader to read a Kindle aloud.

We redesigned the Bookreader to read real paper books. In our example, we digitize a paper copy of Horowitz and Hill’s The Art of Electronics.

http://adafru.it/b109836

3-Pring Product DIY Hacking Off-the-Shelf Products with 3D Printed Parts @ Takt Project:

3-PRING PRODUCT is a new D.I.Y. idea proposal that can change the usage of the product, or pursue user’s own better usability by adding 3D-printed parts to ready-made products. This time we used ready-made products of MUJI as an example.

Just like ‘Sampling Techniques’ in music industry which creating a new track by quoting tracks or sounds in the past, create an original product with adding own made parts while quoting ready-made product. In this instance, We treat a 3D printer as a music instrument that can enhance the prospect exponentially for this ‘sampling’ process.

Architect Brian Peter’s “Building Bytes” 3D printed bricks #3DxArchitecture #3DThursday #3DPrinting
http://adafru.it/b109473

via dezeen

Architect Brian Peters has adapted a desktop 3D printer to produce ceramic bricks. “I’ve been working with desktop 3D printers for the past couple of years and wanted to transform the machine to build something on a larger, more architectural scale,” Peters told Dezeen.

A 6-week residency at the European Ceramic Work Centre in the south of the Netherlands provided him with the opportunity to experiment with printing ceramics from a liquid earthenware recipe normally used in mould-making. The only modification required for the printer was the addition of a custom extrusion head.

3D Printer Builds Ten Affordable Homes in 24 Hours #3DxArchitecture #3DThursday #3DPrinting
http://adafru.it/dio

…in Shanghai, WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co. has been using a monstrous printing device to build homes at a breakneck pace — 10 homes in 24 hours.

Measuring out at roughly 105 feet long, 33 feet wide, and 21 feet tall, this clearly isn’t your average retail printer. Unlike most 3D printers, this printing giant is fed with cement rather than plastic, making it especially well-suited for home construction. The best part is the houses are super cheap to make and they’re made almost entirely of construction and other industrial waste.

NEW PRODUCT – Small Enclosed Piezo w/ Wires
http://adafru.it/dhA

NEW PRODUCT – Small Enclosed Piezo w/ Wires: This small (14mm diameter) piezo element is nicely enclosed so you can attach easily. Piezo elements convert vibration to voltage or voltage to vibration. That means you can use this as a buzzer for making beeps, tones and alerts AND you can use it as a sensor, to detect fast movements like knocks. You can also use it under a drum pad to make a drum/crash sensor

It’s rated for up to 9Vpp use but you can also use 3V square waves and its plenty loud. For music use with an Arduino, check out the Tone tutorial. For sensing, the Knock tutorial is your guide! There are thin wires attached, we plugged them into a solderless breadboard, but they might too thin to plug in directly into the Arduino socket headers.

In stock and shipping now.

Shared on the Adafruit Forums:

I want to share my customer feedback. I believe a company that sells its own products is only as good as its customer service/support. It’s the product/customer support after the sale that keeps the customers satisfied and helps grow your future sales. I want to tell Adafruit that I am 100% satisfied with their product design/production, quality control, sales, shipping, and service/support. Adafruit has exceeded my expectations! I have never had any problem with any part of your company. I also want to give recognition Rick in the Adafruit Service Forms for his help in my posts. Thank you Rick. Thank you again Adafruit. =) I will be an Adafruit customer for life! Thank you Adafruit and Rick.

Dazzling Marvel Girl Costume

When Jean Grey first joined the X-Men, her Marvel Girl costume was pretty simple. The green dress and yellow mask and gloves are iconic and quite snazzy. Kelldar made the outfit back in 2009 and says it was a fun and simple project. #cosplay   #costuming   #xmen

Loving the Digital Dresses #WearableWednesday
http://adafru.it/b109564

If your style is digital, you should visit apexart in NY for some artistic thrills. The current exhibit, Coding the Body, "interrogates the relationship between humans and code”. Filled with large images of robots and thought provoking wearables, it encourages you to experience texture and to examine process. One small display even captures the feet of passersby, reminding us that movement is not only precious, but something that can be captured and digitized. The exhibit was organized by Leah Buechley, of MIT’s High-Low Tech, who has been researching, playing, inventing and encouraging others in the field of crafting  electricity.
The garment above by Nervous System explores biological connection. From a distance it looks like lace or a beautiful seaweed, but on close examination, itis sm... more »

Hacking for NASA Noses #WearableWednesday
http://adafru.it/b109658

This weekend I participated in the NASA Spaces Apps Challenge at the main stage in New York with a team of fellow hackers to tackle the challenge of Space Wearables. The idea was to create an outfit or accessory that might be helpful for spaceflight. My team was loaded with people that had either worked with wearables or Arduino, so we were psyched. Astronaut, Doug Wheelock was there, and we made it a point to ambush him before his big Q&A. Besides getting some great pics, we asked, “What is the thing you miss most when you’re in space.  He replied, “Believe it or not, the smell of earth — soil”. He then explained how senses dull in high altitudes, and how you really miss the sensation of smell. That was all we needed to hear; we ran off to our table and started sketching a wearable that would becapable of ... more »

Tailor Truck: Get 3D scanned for a perfectly fitting suit in your neighborhood   #WearableWednesday  
http://adafru.it/b109541

It’s easy to see from the images above that a well fitting suit can do wonders for your look. That’s the goal of Arden Reed’s tailor truck- they use 3D scanning to customize a suit to fit your body. After a successful kickstarter campaign, the truck is now fully functional and taking appointments in cities around America. The suits don’t come that cheap but if you’re willing to spend the money they will guarantee that your suit will fit perfectly!

Why Custom?

Have you ever browsed a GQ magazine and wondered how these guys can look so effortlessly good?

On the other hand, have you ever seen a Macy’s catalogue and FELT the department store look?

Sparkling Chameleon Fur Wrap #WearableWednesday
http://adafru.it/b109436

richa1 in the Adafruit forums writes:

This is a variant of the Adafruit Chameleon Scarf that I recently made. I made the color fade and randomly twinkle rather than stay on all the time. I also added a button to restart the color sample sequence as well. To include some motion feedback, I used a Fast Vibration Sensor Switch to increase the number of pixels that go bright when it is triggered.

/8Stitch Parallel Conductive Threads with a Cording Foot #WearableWednesday*
http://adafru.it/b109436

Cynthia’s been on a wearables roll lately! Check out this technique for stitching parallel conductive threads onto a ribbon by using a cording foot (comes with most sewing machines). Hackaday writes:

This technique could be particularly useful when using addressable LEDs like a NeoPixel to get the ground, data, and positive lined up fairly accurately. Sewing the conductive thread onto ribbon also makes it a hell of a lot easier to attach to many garments or textiles, and also makes it easier to replace or reuse.
