Arduino Using an SD Card and Digital Signage On a Raspberry Pi - Let's Make it - Episode 50

 

This week we show you how to use an sd card with an arduino to log data. We also show you how read a file on the sd card, manipulate files and get details like card size, type and directory of files.

 In our second segment we show you how to turn a raspberry pi into a digital signage device. All for nothing more than the cost of the raspberry pi.

Raspberry Pi Basics and a Ustream checker - Let's Make It - Episode 16

This week we finally are taking a closer look at the Raspberry Pi, show you where to get Raspian Wheezy, how to load it onto the SD card.  

Then we do some basic control of an LED with the built in GPIO port by making it blink by writing a script in python to blink the LED.

Then, for our final demonstration, we take the Ustream check we did in episode 10 and re-create it in python on the Raspberry Pi and turn on the LED if our stream is up.  Plus we also are capturing some statistics data.
