>> RASPBERRY CAR HACK
It is so great when work can be this much fun (and get paid for it).
Raspberry Pi's have been used for a number of cool little hacks - Eric Svensson
from the Evothings development team wrote up a
blog post showing how he was able
dissecting the original controller and connecting it to the GPIO's of the
It surely isn't the first time someone has connected a Raspberry Pi to a
radio controlled car (references:
3 and more)
but physically seeing one and being able to play with it is so much more
appealing and definitely makes coming to work so much more fun.
Althought a simple hack, the next step would be to integrate a small
arduino type device (such as RedBearLab's
Blend Micro) and build a mobile client to control the car over low energy
Bluetooth and then have a series of car racing competitions in the office.
