We are all doing the best we can to keep our sanity, and maybe even getting to know ourselves a bit better while in isolation. Perhaps you have an undiscovered talent that may have otherwise gone overlooked. Hey, it happens—a clever individual in Serbia found out he could build a nifty RC car that fires Nerf darts using a Raspberry Pi board (one of many neat Raspberry Pi projects to pass the time), despite not being a developer. The details and a few videos were posted to Reddit, with user 'stiw47' explaining this is a work in progress. Down the road, he plans on adding a camera, and "maybe something else." He also intends on swapping out the cardboard pieces with 3D printed parts, which... Read more...
When we think of the Raspberry Pi single-board PC platform, we think of an efficient system running something like Raspbian. However, for those that have wanted to explore the vast world of Windows 10 with a Raspberry Pi, you’ve primarily been limited to restrictive builds like Windows 10 IoT Core. But a developer by the name of José Manuel Nieto is making it easy for you to install a slightly more mainstream version of Windows 10 on your Raspberry Pi 3. He has created the WoA installer, which is a quick and easy tool for creating a bootable Windows 10 on ARM image for Raspberry Pi.  Now we must forewarn you that Windows 10 on ARM first launched on systems...

Valve recently had a fire sale on its Steam Link accessory, which sold for a meager $2.50 during Black Friday and Cyber Monday as Valve looked to rid itself of all existing stock. Forever—it's not coming back. That's a bummer, though in its place is a Steam Link app that is now available in beta, and you can use it to build your own streaming game device. You won't be able to build one for as little as $2.50, not unless you already own the necessary hardware, but you can still assemble one rather cheaply. All you need is a Raspberry Pi 3 or Raspberry Pi 3 B+, and a little bit of code. Don't worry, it's not daunting. To begin with, you need to make sure your Raspberry Pi is running the "Stretch"...

A new device called the Renegade Elite (ROC-RK3399-PC) has surfaced as a competitor to the Raspberry Pi 3 that is packing much higher specifications and can stream 4K video, albeit significantly more expensive. The Renegade Elite is made by Libre Computer and will soon surface for pre-order on Indiegogo. One thing not in the favor of the Renegade Elite is the price. While the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ sells for $35, the Renegade Elite will set you back $100. That much loot will get you a hexa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and dual USB 3.0 Type-C ports, one of which can be used for power input. Other features include three standard USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 2.0 output, and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.... Read more...
Education startup pi-top has rolled out a revised version of its take on a Raspberry Pi-powered laptop. According to pi-top, the modular laptop is designed to help students learn how to code, and give them experience with piecing together electronic components. Perhaps that most intriguing aspect of the laptop its sliding keyboard, which gives users direct access to the device’s internal components. In addition, this allows access to a modular rail mounting system for custom-built invention projects. Playing up on the tinker spirit of the laptop, an Inventor's Kit is included with electrical components necessary to complete DIY projects. Three of these projects are included: Music Master, Smart... Read more...
ASUS first announced its competitor for the Raspberry Pi 3 back in late January. Aimed at DIY enthusiasts, the Tinker Board promises unmatched performance and connectivity options compared to the perennial favorite in this arena. Today, ASUS is announcing that the Tinker Board is now available in North America, where it will be priced at $54.99. ASUS says that the single-board system is capable of powering all of your projects from robots to media boxes to coding machine for budding programmers. The Tinker Board is powered by a Rockchip RK3288 quad-core ARM SoC that is clocked at 1.8GHz, and has an integrated Mali-T764 GPU (600MHz). The Tinker Board is no slouch when it comes to rest of its specs... Read more...
