MY House Gesture Controlled Smart Doll's House

Featuring gesture-controlled interactive features, the MY House smart doll’s house is a fascinating project that could inspire you to include similar features in your own smart home build. And at the heart of it, you’ll find a Raspberry Pi 3...
Arduino-powered Active-tracking Solar Panel

Arduino-powered Active-tracking Solar Panel

Solar panels are more common these days, whether arranged in fields as collection arrays, on the roof of homes, or as part of your camping or festival gear to keep mobile devices topped up.
Create a Low Budget Smart Trash Can with Arduino

Create a Low Budget Smart Trash Can with Arduino

Smart trash cans were all the rage a couple of years ago. The idea is simple; a sensor detects movement or the presence of trash and triggers a servo to open the lid of the trash can.
Measure Your Skateboard Speed and Distance with a Raspberry Pi

Measure Your Skateboard Speed and Distance with a Raspberry Pi

“...I like to skate and cruise around. While I'm cruising, it would be handy to see how much distance I've travelled and see my speed.”
Ready for the DiddyBorg v2 Robot Kit?

Ready for the DiddyBorg v2 Robot Kit?

Available in two colours (purple for power, red for speed), the DiddyBorg v2 Robot Kit will take your Raspberry Pi on a ride it will never forget!
Can a Raspberry Pi Help Protect Coral Reefs?

Can a Raspberry Pi Help Protect Coral Reefs?

We’ve seen the Raspberry employed in countless unique ways since the little computer arrived, but did you ever imagine that it could help to save marine life?

PiParp: Prank Your Friends with a Parping Raspberry Pi Whoopee Cushion!

The whoopee cushion has been upgraded. No longer a rubber bladder filled with air (or, at times, a piece of foam), it has been enhanced and is capable of playing any noise you can think of, thanks to a Raspberry Pi.

What Can You Do with an Adafruit Crickit?

Supposedly designed to help avoid a robot apocalypse, the Creative Robotics and Interactive Construction Kit from Adafruit - Crickit for short - is an add-on for their Circuit Playground Express (CPX), an easy-to-use board with support for CircuitPython, Arduino, or (coming soon) the Microsoft MakeCode programming tool.
EXCLUSIVE : Arduino Announces the Arduino Uno WiFi Rev 2 and MKR VIDOR 4000

EXCLUSIVE : Arduino Announces the Arduino Uno WiFi Rev 2 and MKR VIDOR 4000

The biggest news was a new MKR format board, the VIDOR 4000. A board that can quite literally be anything you want it to be thanks to an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) that can be instructed to behave like many different processors.
Arduino-Based Alcohol Detector

Arduino-Based Alcohol Detector

Anyone who has used an Arduino will know how simple it is to connect a sensor, access the module’s library, and enjoy some satisfying results. Moisture detectors, LDRs, microphones for detecting sound ... the possibilities are endless.
A Raspberry Pi and Arduino-Powered Dart Board Digital Scoring Display

A Raspberry Pi and Arduino-Powered Dart Board Digital Scoring Display

We’re not saying that you’re the next Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor, but there’s a good chance you like a game of darts. Hasn’t the lack of a decent digital display proved a problem, in a world of oft-disappearing chunks of chalk?
A Solar Powered Squirrelhouse

A Solar Powered Squirrelhouse

Whether you live in the countryside or a suburban part of town near a park or fields, there is a good chance that there’s some wildlife nearby. While birds, foxes, squirrels and other creatures are bolder than ever when it comes to living in proximity to the grinding gears of progress, it can still be difficult to see them up close.
Time your Drones with an Awesome 3D-Printed Arduino-Powered Landing Pad!

Time your Drones with an Awesome 3D-Printed Arduino-Powered Landing Pad!

Ever fancied giving your quadcopter drone a cool landing area, or wanted to time its progress running circuits around your garden? Sure, a stopwatch is one option, but if you're busy controlling the drone you’re not going to be able to get an accurate timing.

How Android Things Can Develop Your IoT Project

Realising your dreams has always been tricky, but if you’re dreaming up something techy, it’s getting easier. You’ve got the Raspberry Pi, and Python, for example, or an Arduino and C++.
Raspberry Pi-Controlled Balance Bot

Raspberry Pi-Controlled Balance Bot

How many wheels do you expect to find on a robot? Three? Four? Sometimes, they have more, such as when they’re designed to travel over (alien) terrain.
Introducing Ardublockly for Arduino

Introducing Ardublockly for Arduino

The humble Arduino has powered many projects across the globe. Created in the early 2000s, the Arduino’s goal was to provide a cheap development platform for artists to experiment with electronics. For many years the Arduino set the bar for others to beat, and it wasn’t until the rise of the Raspberry Pi in 2012 that we saw competition that would offer an alternative experience for those new to code.
