Top 4 exciting projects for the Raspberry Pi Zero W

1. Build a Raspberry Pi Zero AirPlay Speaker

While this project in the beginning demands using a Raspberry Pi Zero with a WiFi dongle accessory, the Zero W effectively takes away the need for this add-on. In combination with a low cost 5V convenient battery, it is easy to build yourself a wonderful, wireless AirPlay speaker for streaming music from your Apple product.

Look at the whole step-by-step at Hackster. https://www.hackster.io/fvdbosch/raspberry-pi-zero-airplay-speaker-d99feb

2. Build a Raspberry Pi Zero W desk clock

Because of the Pi Zero W’s wireless abilities, anybody can build yourself a desktop clock that’s accurate to within a few milliseconds. Once you have all the elements (with a display that looks straight out of a Hollywood thriller), it is easy to connect the clock via WiFi to the Network Time Protocol (NTP) and sleep well realizing you’re in sync with the rest of the planet.

Look at the whole step-by-step instruction manual on Hackaday. https://hackaday.io/post/54276

3. Make your personal Raspberry Pi-powered R2-D2

For those who have always wanted to hack a toy R2-D2 into something a tad bit more reasonable, the Raspberry Pi Zero W is here now to help. Les Pounder at TechRadar has released a guide for adding some wheels and attitude to the favorite droid from the “Star Wars” world.

See the step-by-step recommendations here. http://www.techradar.com/how-to/computing/how-to-build-your-own-r2-d2-with-the-raspberry-pi-zero-1310979

4. A Pi Zero W security camera

One of the large noticeable advantages to having a Raspberry Pi Zero W is its capacity to remain connected to the online world in places without an ethernet connection. For security camera systems, this new improvement is exceedingly valuable.

Over at Raspberry Pi Spy, detailed directions have already been released to building up your own Pi Zero W security camera. Even better, there already exists both a good way to mount your camera and a committed operating system known as motionEyeOS to tie it as a whole.

See the whole step-by-step here. http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2017/04/raspberry-pi-zero-w-cctv-camera-with-motioneyeos

One-upping the NES Classic Edition with the Raspberry Pi 3 and RetroPie

NES Classic is no more, but fortunately cost-effective hobbyist boards are an excellent option for easy projects.

Last Nov., Nintendo pleasantly surprised everyone by returning to its root base and releasing the NES Classic. The exciting emulator/nostalgia-fest sparked unforeseen desire, including near-instant supply issues and 200-percent-plus markups in secondary markets. So in December of 2016, we decided to build our own version as a substitute. Since Nintendo bizarrely announced that it won’t be making any more of the hard-to-find mini consoles recently, we’re re-running this piece to help those with a DIY streak yet again build your own. Hardware recommendations have been updated to reflect current availability and pricing for April 2017.

The thing was a piece of plastic that only played 30 games from the 8-bit era – but nostalgia is a highly effective thing. So powerful that demand thoroughly eclipsed supply, leading to crashed websites, exhausted stock and lots of empty-handed customers.

For the people still on a Zelda-like quest to buy this mythical gadget, we’ve got some very good news: the Nintendo NES Classic Edition is already available in JB Hi-FI stores, In australia. Hurrah!

Best Five Raspberry Pi Zero Electronic Projects That Take Advantage Of Its Tiny Measurement

The Raspberry Pi has been the novice decision for Build-it-yourself electronic projects. The Raspberry Pi Zero, that is nearly the size of a stick of gum, is fairly bargain and has it’s own special utilisation circumstances though. The following are ten of our most-liked projects that make full use of its measurement.

1. Put a Raspberry Pi Zero Inside an Old Fashioned Game Controller

Everyone knows the Raspberry Pi makes an terrific DIY gaming console. The setup process basically needs a jiffy, and the Raspberry Pi Zero is entirely competent at handling vintage games from the Super NES time and perhaps earlier. The entire project is more enhanced when the whole system is in a controller.

Proof positive (ahem), this project utilizes a Super NES controller, this one tackles the NES controller, and this one uses that good old original Xbox controller. However you intend to undertake it, you’ll have a really slick little DIY classic game console you are able to carry around anywhere.

2. Make a Miniature Dongle PC

While the Pi Zero makes a nifty little computer as it is, it makes an even better dongle computer. Using this method, you can attach it to another computer you have, then it will tether itself directly so you don’t need to put in a USB or any networking.

The good thing of this project is the point there’s no need for yet one more computer mouse, display screen, or key pad hanging out around. Just simply jam in into your normal desktop PC and you are ready to go.

3. Build the Planet’s Minutest (Quite likely) MAME Cabinet

MAME cabinets are terrific, but they’re large. For the exact opposite approach, it is possible to employ a Raspberry Pi Zero to make one that’s just about as small as the Pi itself.

You may need a few materials to make this sucker get the job done, which include a 3D printed case, but in the end cabinet is totally functional, which implies you’ll have the best desk add-on in the office.

4. Build a Motion Sensing Digicam


source: http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-Motion-Sensing-Camera/

The Raspberry Pi has always been a top quality motion sensing video camera, but the low profile of the Pi Zero helps it to be even better.

With the Raspberry Pi Zero, your motion sensing camera has a smaller measurement, which implies it can go in even tighter rooms. As an example, this one mounts to your window with a set of suction cups, which is about as compact as it gets to be.

5. Play Any Simpsons Episode (or possibly Any Tv Series) At Random

When you’ve ditched cable and gone full streaming with your media, you might still miss the days of catching an arbitrary episode of your most liked TV show. The Raspberry Pi Zero will bring that back.

During this project, they use installments of The Simpsons stored on an Micro sd card. With a custom script, it is easy to click a control button and it plays a sequence randomly. You may increase any media you choose here, including various shows if you really wanted, however, The Simpsons are the ideal option.

Best Five Raspberry Pi Zero Electronics Projects Which Take Advantage Of Its Tiny Measurement

The Raspberry Pi is certainly the dabbler selection for DIY electronic projects. The Raspberry Pi Zero, that’s roughly the measurements of a stick of chewing gum, is pretty low-budget and has it’s own special use circumstances though. The following are ten of our favorite projects which take advantage of its dimension.

1. Pack a Raspberry Pi Zero In an Old Skool Controller

Everyone believes the Raspberry Pi makes an extraordinary DIY video game console. The setup process basically requires a matter of minutes, and the Raspberry Pi Zero is perfectly capable of handling old computer games from the SNES era and perhaps earlier. The entire project is even better when the whole system is inside a controller.

For instance (ahem), this project works on a SNES controller, this one tackles the NES controller, and this one uses that good old original Xbox controller. However you want to do it, you’ll end up with a very slick small DIY vintage gaming console you are able to take with you everywhere.

2. Construct a Miniscule Dongle PC

While the Pi Zero makes a awesome small computer as it is, it makes a much better dongle computer. Doing this, you can attach it to any other computer you have, then it will tether itself directly so you do not need to include a USB or any networking.

One of the benefits of this project is the point you don’t need just another computer mouse, screen, or computer keyboard lounging around. Just simply jam in into your normal computer and you are ready to go.

3. Build the Earth’s Smallest (Probably) MAME Cabinet

MAME cabinets are interesting, however, they are substantial. For the opposite approach, you can easily make use of a Raspberry Pi Zero to make one that’s about as tiny as the Pi itself.

You may need a few items to help make this sucker deliver the results, like a 3D printed case, but in the end cabinet is perfectly functional, which implies you will have the ideal desk add-on at your workplace.

4. Make a Motion Sensing Digicam


source: http://instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-Motion-Sensing-Camera/

The Raspberry Pi is certainly a fantastic motion sensing camcorder, but the low profile of the Pi Zero makes it far better.

With the Raspberry Pi Zero, your motion sensing camera has a a lot smaller footprint, which suggests it can go in even tighter rooms. For instance, this one mounts to your window with a set of suction cups, which is nearly as light as it may get.

5. Play Any Simpsons Episode (or maybe Any TV Show) With Little Thought

If you have ditched cable and gone full streaming with your media, you’ll probably still miss the days of catching an arbitrary episode of your most enjoyable TV show. The Raspberry Pi Zero is able to bring that back.

In this project, they use episodes of The Simpsons stored on an Sdcard. With a custom script, it is possible to mouse click a control button and it plays an episode randomly. You may add in any media you wish here, including various shows if you really wanted, but The Simpsons are a wonderful option.

Wirelessly Powered Pi Zero



*History*
When the Raspberry Pi Zero first came out I was amazed at its cost and its small form factor. It was almost exactly the processor I needed to run in my robot’s head. Then the rev 1.3 came out with the camera connector, and it became exactly what I needed.

*This Video*
In this video I demonstrate how the Raspberry Pi Zero can run, boot a desktop, and take pictures, all on wireless power. I’m using this to power the electronics and vision processing in the head of a BB-8 like robot, but the concept can easily be extended to run the Pi Zero in weatherproof cases, underwater, POV displays, or other adverse or rotational situations.

Best Five Raspberry Pi Zero Electronic Projects That Benefit From Its Compact Dimension

The Raspberry Pi continues to be the dabbler choice for Do-it-yourself electronic projects. The Raspberry Pi Zero, which is approximately the measurements of a stick of chewing gum, is comparatively low-priced and has it’s own special application examples though. Listed here are ten of our favorite projects that make use of its measurement.

1. Pack a Raspberry Pi Zero Into an Old School Game Controller

Everyone knows the Raspberry Pi makes an fabulous DIY video game console. The setup process simply necessitates a jiffy, and the Raspberry Pi Zero is perfectly ideal for coping with classic computer games from the SNES time and earlier. The whole project is a lot better when the whole system is in a controller.

Just to illustrate (ahem), this project runs on a SNES controller, this one tackles the NES controller, and this one uses that good old original Xbox controller. However you opt to practice it, you’ll obtain a fairly slick little DIY retro gaming console you can take with you just about anywhere.

2. Construct a Tiny Dongle PC

While the Pi Zero makes a nifty little computer as it is, it makes a better dongle computer. This way, you can attach it to any other computer you have, then it will tether itself directly so you do not need to add in a USB or any networking.

One of the benefits of this project is the fact that you will not need yet one more PC mouse, screen, or computer keyboard hanging out. Simply just jam in into your standard computer and you are fine.

3. Build the Globe’s Minutest (Most likely) MAME Cabinet

MAME cabinets are brilliant, but they’re huge. For the opposite approach, it is easy to take advantage of a Raspberry Pi Zero to make one that is just about as small as the Pi itself.

You will need a few stuff to help to make this sucker get the job done, for instance a 3D printed case, but in the end cabinet is entirely functional, meaning you will have the best desk add-on on the job.

4. Build a Motion Sensing Digital camera


source: http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-Motion-Sensing-Camera/

The Raspberry Pi has been a superior motion sensing camera, but the low profile of the Pi Zero makes it better still.

Employing the Raspberry Pi Zero, your motion sensing camera has a smaller footprint, indicating it can go in even tighter rooms. As an illustration, this one mounts to your window with a set of suction cups, which is nearly as light as it can be.

5. Play Any Simpsons Episode (or maybe Any Television Program) At Random

In case you have ditched cable and gone full streaming with your media, you’ll probably still miss the days of catching an arbitrary episode of your most liked show on TV. The Raspberry Pi Zero is able to bring that back.

During this project, they use episodes of The Simpsons placed on an SD card. With a custom script, you can click a control button and it plays a chapter randomly. You may increase any media you would like here, including many shows if you really wanted, however, The Simpsons are a wonderful choice.

Build Your Own Retro Nintendo Classic Mini NES With Raspberry Pi!



Can’t find the new Nintendo Classic Mini in stores?
Don’t want to pay the ridiculous prices in the secondary market?
Why not make your own retro gaming console on the Raspberry Pi mini computer! This is done with the Retropie distribution and loading NES and/or SNES game roms onto the pi computer. I used the Raspberry Pi 3 because it is newest, includes wi-fi and bluetooth. You could make on cheaper if you wanted to.

Here’s the Raspberry Pi kit that I used: http://amzn.to/2gnqk7u
Here are some How-To Videos:

This project was pretty cool. This retro gaming system cost me less than what the Classic Nintendo Mini retails in stores. And you are able to add more games and include other cool packages like KODI. Give it a try! Make your own Nintendo Entertainment System, with KODI!

One-upping the NES Classic Edition with the Raspberry Pi 3 and RetroPie

NES Classic is no more, but happily very affordable hobbyist boards are ideal for simple projects.

Last Nov, Nintendo pleasantly surprised everyone by going back to its root base and introducing the NES Classic. The charming emulator/nostalgia-fest triggered unforeseen demand, including near-instant supply issues and 200-percent-plus markups in secondary markets. So in December of 2016, we made a decision to build our own version instead. Since Nintendo bizarrely announced that it won’t be making any more of the hard-to-find mini consoles this week, we’re re-running this piece to help people with a DIY streak once again build your own. Hardware recommendations have been updated to reflect current availability and pricing for April 2017.

Meet MintyPi 2.0: Raspberry Pi Video Game Emulator Jampacked Into Tiny Mint Tin Box

A YouTuber and inventor has shown mintyPi 2.0, a project that transforms an ordinary mint tin box in to a lightweight gaming console.

MintyPi 2.0, powered by the Raspberry Pi tiny computer, is the 2nd attempt at the project, bringing with it many innovations as opposed to original mintyPi.

JB Hi-Fi Just Received The Mother Lode Of Nintendo Classic Minis

Christmas 2016 will eternally be appreciated as the year people went legit bananas for a retro NES console. The thing was a piece of plastic that basically played 30 games from the 8-bit era – but nostalgia is a highly effective thing. So powerful that demand fully eclipsed supply, ultimately causing crashed web sites, exhausted stock and a huge number of empty-handed buyers.

For those still on a Zelda-like pursuit to get this mythological gadget, we’ve got some good news: the Nintendo NES Classic Edition is already obtainable in JB Hi-FI stores, In australia. Hurrah!

Best 5 Raspberry Pi Zero Electronics Projects That Benefit From Its Small Stature

The Raspberry Pi has long been the novice selection for Do-it-yourself electronics projects. The Raspberry Pi Zero, which is about the dimensions of a stick of chewing gum, is pretty cheap and has it’s own special utilisation examples though. Underneath are 10 of our most-loved projects which make use of its size.

1. Put a Raspberry Pi Zero In an Traditional Game Controller

We all know the Raspberry Pi makes an super DIY video gaming console. The setup process typically requires a short while, and the Raspberry Pi Zero is totally ideal for handling dated games from the Super NES time and even earlier. The entire project is better yet when the whole system is inside a controller.

Working example (ahem), this project relies on a Super NES controller, this one tackles the NES controller, and this one uses that good old original Xbox controller. However you intend to get it done, you will have a really slick tiny DIY vintage game console you are able to take with you wherever.

2. Construct a Miniscule Dongle Computer

While the Pi Zero makes a nice tiny computer as it is, it makes a better dongle computer. By doing so, you can attach it to another computer you have, then it will tether itself directly so you will not need to add in a USB or any networking.

The best part of this project is the point that you do not need one more mouse, display screen, or key pad sitting around. Just simply jam in into your normal desktop computer and you’re all set.

3. Construct the Globe’s Smallest (Quite likely) MAME Cabinet

MAME cabinets are awesome, however, they are gigantic. For the exact opposite approach, you are able to employ a Raspberry Pi Zero to make one that’s about as tiny as the Pi itself.

You will want a few stuff to help make this sucker do the trick, which include a 3D printed case, but in the end cabinet is extremely functional, which implies you will have the ideal desk add-on in the office.

4. Build a Motion Sensing Digicam

The Raspberry Pi is almost certainly an extremely good motion sensing camera, but the low profile of the Pi Zero makes it far better.

Using the Raspberry Pi Zero, your motion sensing camera has a much smaller size, indicating it can go in even tighter spaces. For illustration, this one mounts to your window with a couple of suction cups, which is about as light as it can be.

5. Play Any Simpsons Episode (or maybe Any Tv Program) With Little Thought

If you have ever ditched cable and gone full streaming with your media, you might still miss the days of catching an arbitrary episode of your most enjoyable show on TV. The Raspberry Pi Zero can bring that back.

In this project, they use installments of The Simpsons placed on an Sdcard. With a custom script, you could just click a control button and it plays a chapter at random. It’s possible to add any media you prefer here, including multiple shows if you wished, yet, The Simpsons make the perfect option.
