Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a single board computer that runs Linux and can be used for all sorts of projects. The Pi hasa number of GPIO pins that can be scripted with python and other languages, along with headers for other communication protocols like I2C. Below are some projects I'm working on that use the Raspberry Pi.

Time Lapse Photography
Thanks to many open-source tools already available for Linux (not just the Pi), it's possible to pull together some scripts for making the Pi a time-lapse controller for a digital camera. The flexibility of being able to script this camera control should lend itself to some interesting effects.

LCD Character Display Shield
As part of the Time-Lapse project, I had to figure out how to use an Adafruit LCD Character Display Shield designed for the Arduino with the Pi. It wasn't hard, but I figured others who might be curious how to do it would benefit from my notes.

Raspberry Pi Jams (Capital District Makerspace)
Materials developed in support of the Raspberry Pi Jams run through the Capital District Makerspace.
