Linux offers a number of lean web browsers which can be substituted for resource hungry ones like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Although they may appear rather austere, these browsers are nonetheless remarkably convenient to use.
If you want to power your Pi solely with batteries, then it makes sense for the Pi to only be turned on when you need it. The Pi can boot when called remotely via radio signal sent over the European 868 MHz band.
Airplanes continuously broadcast signals that identify the aircraft and its current flight path. With a moderately priced receiver and a Raspberry Pi, users can receive ADS-B transponder data in real time.
The Raspberry Pi still lacks analog GPIOs that would allow it to read directly from temperature and light sensors, or even humble potentiometers. With an inexpensive chip and some software-fu you can grant the Pi the gift of analog sensing.
It does not take long to install and configure Raspbian on an SD card. However, for users who need to repeat the same steps time and again on multiple Pis, there is an easier, less boring way to get the job done. This comes in the form of simple shell scripts which can automate installation.
The ESP8266 Wifi chip can be used for measurement applications wherever the capabilities of the Raspberry Pi are woefully underutilized. In sleep mode, this microcontroller uses less than 3.3 milliwatts and costs only 6 Euro.
In today's world, SMS seems like an outdated and expensive technology. Nonetheless, there are certain situations in which this technology acts as the go-to choice. The Raspberry Pi can easily use SMS by harnessing its onboard capabilities.Raspberry Pi
Beetle Blocks is an interesting twist on the "block-building programming language" idea. Instead of a flat, boring plane, you move a beetle around 3D space, drawing cubes, spheres and all sorts of other shapes.
