Yet another device that takes up some of my time, Nanode 5 an Arduino board with built in ethernet support.

Too many different things to learn about.

Too many new toys to play with:

This picture show an alaMode shield for the Raspberry Pi. The picture was taken without the shield being plugged into a Raspberry Pi. I had plugged it into one of my Raspberry Pi's and ran several test sketchs on the alaMode to blink a led, read temperature and show the changing light on the photo sensor.

The alaMode is an arduino board by itself, but allows the Raspberry Pi to easily communicate with  the arduino micro controller and shields.

Here is another project I started this weekend, putting together several things I have been playing with (separate posts on each peace later).

My raspibot:

It has been a while since my last post.... I was only going to post about things I have completed and then realized that it might be too long between posts. I have been playing with a lot of different things. just this last week I was lucky to receive a raspberry pi camera. It seems that I lucked out and logged onto the Farnell website in the UK and found some in stock (I had problems attempting to setup an account on the North American website). I ordered a Raspberry Pi Model A and a Raspberry Pi camera and received them in less than a week.

Here is the first picture I took:

I will now start posting different things that I play with, completed or not...
