Raspberry Pi: Learn How to Build Amazing IoT & Robotics Projects at Home

September 11, 2017The Hacker News
Do you want to make your own robot at home? But, of course, one can not spend hundreds or thousands of dollars, and definitely would not be able to join a 4-year-long engineering institute to learn how to do it? Well, we have good news for you—Try the Raspberry Pi board to create amazing projects at highly affordable cost. Raspberry Pi is a tiny, cheaper and customizable computer that helps anyone learn how to code almost all sorts of software and hardware projects—from designing your own robot to automating things around the house. This mini-computer, Raspberry Pi, is as powerful as your smartphone and can easily connect to the Internet and interface with a lot of hardware components. Of course, you will need to learn some basic programming skills and beginner’s guide on how to connect to the hardware devices. But don’t worry, this week at THN Deal store, we have an amazing course for just $39, called The Raspberry Pi Mastery Bundle , which includes 8 different courses
Raspberry Pi launches PIXEL OS for Mac and PCs

Raspberry Pi launches PIXEL OS for Mac and PCs

December 22, 2016Mohit Kumar
Here's the Raspberry Pi's Christmas treat for tech community! The Raspberry Pi Foundation has released an experimental version of its lightweight Linux-based Debian operating system called PIXEL OS that can run on most standard desktop computers ships with Windows and Mac OS X without the need of a Raspberry Pi. Initially launched in September this year, the PIXEL operating system, stands for "Pi Improved Xwindows Environment, Lightweight," was originally designed to work with Raspberry Pi to turn it into a fully-functional PC. However, Raspberry Pi has now released a version of PIXEL that comes preloaded with a variety of popular tools and can be installed directly on PCs and Mac computers, so you do not have to buy a Raspberry Pi to use PIXEL anymore. "There is a massive installed base of PC and Mac hardware out there, which can run x86 Debian just fine. Could we do something for the owners of those machines?" Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton s

Get ready for a ThanksGiving celebration from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Raspberry Pi, the charitable foundation behind the United Kingdom's best-selling computer, has just unveiled its latest wonder – the Raspberry Pi Zero . Raspberry Pi Zero is a programmable computer that costs just $5 (or £4), may rank as the world's cheapest computer. Raspberry Pi Zero: Just $5 Computer Yes, Pi Zero is the smallest Raspberry Pi yet for just $5, but might be the biggest when looking at its specifications: Broadcom BCM2835 application processor (same as Pi 1) 1GHz ARM11 core (40 percent faster than Raspberry Pi 1) 512MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM Micro-SD card slot MiniHDMI socket for 1080p60 video output Micro-USB for data Micro-USB for power Unpopulated 40-pin GPIO connector Identical pinout to Model A+/B+/2B Unpopulated composite video connector Smallest ever form factor (i.e. 65mm x 30mm x 5mm) Get Your Raspberry Pi Zero Now!

Anonymity is something that seems next to impossible in this era of government surveillance. Even Tor and VPNs are no longer seem to be enough to protect user privacy. Once your IP address is discovered, your Game Over! However, a method have been devised that not only allow users to anonymously connect to public Wi-Fi network, but also let them connect from about 2.5 Miles away . Security researcher Benjamin Caudill has developed a device that adds an extra layer of anonymity to whistleblowers, journalists, dissidents and, of course, criminals. Dubbed ProxyHam , it's a " hardware proxy " that allows users to connect to a long-distance public Wi-Fi network over an unidentifiable low-frequency radio channels, making it more difficult for government agencies and spies to unearth the real identity and source of the Internet traffic. How Proxyham is made?  Proxyham is comprised of a WiFi-enabled Raspberry Pi computer , along with a three antennas setu

Earlier today, when Raspberry Pi Foundation unveiled the second avatar of its mini computer, the tech giant Microsoft revealed that Windows 10 operating system will support the Raspberry Pi 2 for the development of smart devices and appliances. Really a great news for all Micro-computing fans – a new, powerful Raspberry Pi 2 Model B in town. However, Microsoft added another reason to celebrate it – the new model of  Raspberry Pi 2  runs Windows 10 . The all-new and powerful version of Raspberry Pi 2 brings a host of new hardware, including a Broadcom 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor and 1GB of RAM . Raspberry Pi Foundation says that these upgrades make the Pi 2 Model B a much more powerful computer which costs $35 only. Raspberry Pi 2 have six times the processing power of Model B+ . Also, its quad-core chip and twice the amount of main memory will support more intensive processing tasks, which means the device can do almost everything a normal PC can, such as
