Re: Feedback wanted: Headless Pi project

Thanks for the replies, @RpiName: That's a really interesting project - definitely a candidate for inclusion I think @mattmiller: I love PiBakery, especially using Blockly to configure things on the Pi Any thoughts from anyone else? Best thing might just be to take the "build it and they will come" ...

Feedback wanted: Headless Pi project

TL;DR We want to make it really easy to run the Pi headless so that new users can use it without needing a monitor, etc Getting some feedback from seasoned Pi veterans on what we’re looking to do would be enormously helpful so here are some initial thoughts on what could be done: My favourite way to...

Re: Scratch and robotics

I get it, but it's still a shame external integrations are so clunky :-) Is the 1.x branch of scratch still being developed? Or is it all 2.x now? I just wish 2.x wasn't Flash. There's no easy solution, it seems. It's got me thinking about how you could achieve what we want to without losing compati...

Re: Scratch and robotics

Weird, just worked for me now - nevermind. Here's a copy paste of that comment: The WiFi module is a neat little device. Aside from being low cost, it's also got a few tricks up its sleeve: - Has dual networks so you can join its access point and it can join yours - Socket to serial converter - Very...

Re: Scratch and robotics

@williamhbell the 2hz limit is good to know, that explains what I was seeing @simplesi that's much better just updating the ready variable from the node script - cuts out quite a few blocks. Top tip! I think it's a real shame that there's no real way of integrating things with custom blocks in 1.4. ...

Scratch and robotics

Hello, Thought you might be interested to see some work I did yesterday in getting Scratch running on a Pi talking to a WiFi kids robotics kit I've been developing: http://mirobot.io/blog/2014/04/29/raspberry-pi-scratch-and-mirobot/ It uses the remote sensor connection, though I wish there was a bet...
