Raspberry Pi® Projects for the Evil Genius

by: Donald Norris


Abstract: Enjoy a baker's dozen of fun Raspberry Pi projects! This hands-on resource gives you a guided tour of the Raspberry Pi hardware, operating system, and IDE. Raspberry Pi® Projects for the Evil Genius then gets you up and running with the Python programming language and the GPIO library so you can start on your creations right away. You'll learn how to assemble a prototype board to use with your projects, and then you'll jump right in with illustrated, step-by-step instructions that lead you through projects that gradually grow in sophistication. All projects in the book can be built with relatively inexpensive, easy-to-find components. This do-it-yourself guide shows you how to get the most out of your Raspberry Pi! Raspberry Pi® Projects for the Evil Genius: • Features step-by-step instructions and helpful illustrations • Provides schematics and code for every project • Covers the programming principles behind the projects • Removes the frustration factor—all required parts are listed along with sources Build these ingenious devices: • LED blinker • MP3 player • Camera controller • GPS device • Earthquake detector • Home automation system • Weather station • Home security controller • NFC/RFID reader • Local and remote logic controller • Robotic car • Radon detector • Real-time clock (RTC) and Network Time Protocol (NTP) server
