Re: BirdBox Cam

Apologies for the very very late reply! It appears that the birdbox camera has not been working at all as it should. I am in the process of changing it to picamera or something like that to make it work all the time. Because I am using WIFI, I am getting black lines across the preview image as the d...

Re: Software Defined Radio

Instead of ham radio, would it be possible to use say 20 - 30 metal coat hangers strung out in 'x' formation connected to an sdr compatible USB dongle to receive outer space signals? Just like a radio telescope? I know that one of the biggest radio telescopes (Jodrell Bank) in the UK uses a paraboli...

Re: Replace cable of camera module

I replaced my cable with a longer one, 30 cm long. Got it off eBay for about £4.50 inc postage. Does not seem to cause any compatibility problems, but I do get some image breakup. I think that this is because the camera module is only rf certified with the standard supplied cable? Maybe I will try a...

Re: Raspi Pip-boy

Fantastic. Just like the Predator wrist control! Maybe that ran Linux too?

Re: live webcam streaming

Check out my site: kateandmike.co.uk. Under houseofrpi menu select birdboxcam. It is a 'model a' with wifi adapter, camera module, mpg-streamer and 5 meter USB extension cable connected to a 3pin wall wart USB style charger. 5 m cable is just long enough to allow the birdbox to be attached to the ou...

4 x lcd screens on offer

Hi guys, I have acquired 4 x lcd screens that may do for a raspberry pi project(s). My intention was to have a go at interfacing them to my Pi, but I don't have time or the technical prowess. If someone can make use of them, you can have them for free (Just pay postage - should be about £3.50 second...

Re: Using blender?

Any movement on this project?

Very interested in a headless blender node on the rPi!

Interesting take on the whole render farm scenario!
