Now Use Your Raspberry Pi to Program Your Arduino - Arduino IDE for Raspberry Pi

** Get your own Raspberry Pi and Arduino Boards and Accessories here **

At the risk of getting waaaay to meta with our single board computers and microcontrollers, it is now possible to load the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment) on your Raspberry Pi and use it to program your Arduino boards.

Link: Download the Arduino IDE for Linux ARM


There is now a current version of the Arduino IDE compiled and posted so you don’t have to try and compile it yourself. Just download and type install into a terminal window.

The article points out a great reason and need for this IDE on Raspberry Pi and other single board Linux systems...

" it does make it exceptionally easy for anyone to set up a high school electronics lab. The Raspberry Pi is almost a disposable computing device, and combining it with Arduino makes for a great portable electronics lab."

Looking to expand the usefulness of your Raspberry Pi or set up your own computer lab with inexpensive computers and microcontrollers? The folks at just made it a lot easier.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
