How Much Do You Know About Raspberry Pi? via Open Electronics

Few days ago tomshardware.com has published an interesting interview to Raspberry Pi CEO Eben Upton about the fascinating story behind the most famous SBC for makers.

In this post Eben Upton has revealed 10 things you may not have known about Raspberry Pi, so let me shortly summarise what he told to tomshardware:

  • Raspberry Pi Was Meant to Recruit 1,000 Kids – Raspberry Pi was originally designed to solve a very simple problem: a lack of computer science students. Upton told that Cambridge went from receiving 600 to 250 applications a year for its comp-sci program, and he felt that offering low-cost computers to kids would get them interested in the field.
  • Maker Community Was a Surprise – Though it was originally designed for kids, the Pi has become extremely popular with adult makers. But when Upton and his team first started designing it, they didn’t have this audience in mind.
  • Raspberry Pi 4: Not Until 2020 Don’t expect the Raspberry Pi 4 until 2020.
  • New models will have more RAM, a faster processor and faster I/O.
  • The new chips will be based on a process node that’s larger than 7nm, but no larger than 28nm.
  • It won’t be any larger than the current 3B / 3B+

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...

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.
