We recently ran into an integration problem, as our mobile app development team couldn’t access any APIs using the PUT method. This is the story of how we resolved this issue… Read More…

A Better Time-lapse Photography Script

CanSatLogoMy first attempt at a time lapse script came up a little short.  That script was intended to be quick and dirty.  In order to make it easier to use, I’ve written some improved scripts. Read More…

How To Take Timelapse Photos with Raspberry Pi

CanSatLogoAs part of our CanSat endeavours, we are going to use a Raspberry Pi to do some time-lapse photography as we descend after launch.  In order to do this we’ll need to configure our Pi to do this automatically.  Read on for a description on how to do this.

Enclosure – Raspberry Pi by SparkFunElectronics

So in Part One, we took an old external had drive, and added it as storage to a Raspberry Pi.  In Part Two, we took that Raspberry Pi and shared the new folders on the local network.  In this final tutorial, I’ll show what all of this has been for, and show you how to create your own Home Theater Raspberry Pi.
