...and finally I have received my Raspberry Pi. Here is what I have done with it so far:

More about the Rover shown at the end of the video will follow soon.

Have fun!

Update 1:
Now, my second video about the Raspberry Pi (and the Arduino Uno) is online:
English version:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Qumu2h8 ... 6fKBtBMXoQ

German version:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgLm4ZXc ... 6fKBtBMXoQ

It's explaining in more detail what physical computing can do. It's made of more than 800 files with more than 17GB of data.

Additionaly I have overhauled the project page:
http://www.homofaciens.de/technics-comp ... navion.htm

Enjoy!

Update 2:
I have built a tiny WLAN plotter:

Detailed instructions are available at:

I have captured the lunar eclipse with my Raspberry Pi camera:

Update 3:
Now, Curiosity Pi transmits a live video stream from my RoboSpatium:

Tell me if it works properly - thanks!

The video deserves a front page link methinks! Very cool! Shame we don't have an upvote facility ;)

Absolutely - without a doubt one of the best (and most inspiring) Raspberry Pi videos I have seen. Every Pi enthusiast (and every IT or technology teacher) should see this.

Liz?

Wow! Absolutely brilliant. Agreed needs a front page mention, and good for promotional purposes too.

The praise you've received is very well deserved - fantastic video. Thanks for choosing the Creative Commons license as well.

There's a small translation error in the description, "03:45 Full HD video encoding" should be "03:45 Full HD video decoding"

@HomoFaciens Do you have a diagram/instructions for your RPi interfaceboard as I would be very interested in looking/copying it :)

HomoFaciens: could you post some more details about your acrylic case? In the video I can't quite see how it's fixed together.

The Acrylic Case??? that's what you want to know more about from him???

Brilliant robots/machines/software and hardware and you want to talk to him about the case :P

What was that one about giving a man a fish, or teaching him how... :)

Having seen the other stuff that HomoFaciens has done, I suspect that he has made a sentient Pibot to nanoweld the case around itself, ship-in-a-bottle stylee.

[moving to projects where it belongs...]

Sell a man a fish, you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish, you lose a valuable business opportunity. :-)

Not necessarily - you can deploy signs with "NO FISHING" all around the rivers - that's what licences and patents are for...
...and that's why my videos are creative commons!

I used commercially available nanobots called polystrene cement :D

Now that you have messed up my scheduling of the last two days I will reschedule the next few days and type some words about the board - be patient.

Now I can imagine what you and the people around the foundation must have undergone during the last year(s).

I thank all of you!

Well - I apologise :)

I only meant to catapult you into Superstar Status - next time - I won't bother :)

PS Love the polystyrene nano-bots - do you have a link to them on ebay :)

Thanks HomoFaciens, did you use the miller part to do the PI case ?.
