Mainly video today. A little video showing a few simple examples of the sort of things you can do with the RasPiO Duino. Obviously you can do much more sophisticated things too. My next step will be to control the speed of the LEDs using the light sensor and the analog inputs. Endless fun, and useful too, when you think that an LED could represent any device you wanted to control…

Don’t forget to check out the RasPiO Duino KickStarter, which finishes in a few days,

  1. Demo suggestion: A python script on the RaspberryPi, monitoring a particular twitter username/account/hashtag/whatever (not a twitter user myself!) and if it spots a specifically-formatted RGB colour value, the RasPiO Duino sets the LED to that colour? Twitter-controlled moodlight! Would be a much better example of how this is “more” than just an Arduino, and people always seem to go crazy for things that “connect to twitter”? *shrug*

    Given how well RasPiO Duino is doing on KickStarter, I’ve decided to ‘join the herd’ and add one to my collection of Pi add-ons :)

    • Ahhh – that’s a great idea Andrew. A twitter cheerlight. I wonder if I have time to get that working before the weekend? Thanks for backing :)

  2. How about the python code for the temperature unit on the Pi.

  3. Hi Alex, How soon will it be before we get the serial port functioning on the RasPiO. At the moment the menu item “Tools/Serial Port is ghosted out, trying to run any sketches to the serial port results in an error “Comm 1 does not exist” but there is no way to change this. The jumpers for RX and TX are in place on the RasPiO. Could you anything I might have missed, although I have been over the install process several times. Thank you for your help.
