    Updated Scratch for the BrickPi (and other Graphical Programming Languages!)

    We’ve just updated our instructions and improved Scratch for the BrickPi.  It’s now simpler than ever to get started making and programming a Scratch Raspberry Pi Robot! What’s Changed with Scratch?   This summer, we devoted a bit of effort to updating the the BrickPi software.  It’s now easier to install, and easier to program with.  We fixed quite a...

    EV3 Sensors and the BrickPi

    Looking for adventure? Last month we quietly released a beta version of the BrickPi firmware that will allow you to use EV3 sensors and the BrickPi.  We wanted to invite all that are interested pushing the state of the art further to give the firmware a test.

    Testing EV3 Sensors with the BrickPi

    Beta Testing EV3 Sensors with BrickPi One of the projects we’re in the process of testing: an update to the BrickPi Firmware.  The original BrickPi firmware only works with NXT sensors.  We recently updated the firmware to accommodate EV3 sensors.  The firmware is still in Beta, but we’re inviting everyone to come try it out and tell us what you...

    A LEGO Digital Clock

    Dwalton76 over at programmablebrick has built a programmable LEGO digital clock with the BrickPi.             He has re-worked the original lego clock design by Hans Anderson, using the BrickPi and a Raspberry Pi.   All of the code is written in python and is available on github: https://github.com/dwalton76/LegoDigitalClock

    BrickPi at CERN in Geneva

    The BrickPi recently debuted at CERN in Geneva at their Raspberry Pi day.  The BrickPi was front and center with some LEGO robotics, Raspberry Pi, and Scratch creating. For a full run-down of the day, head over to the Framboise314.fr blog to see more about it, watch some video, and find out when the next one is!

  • Measuring EV3 Current Consumption

    This week we want to share some data we gathered while running some tests on the new EV3 system. Using a DC Bench-top power supply, measuring down to the milliamp, we roughly measured the EV3 current consumption in different situations.  The tabulated data provides an interesting place to start when estimating the battery lifetime of the EV3 battery.

    MINDSTORMS Robot, Raspberry Pi Brains

    Since we first got the Raspberry Pi, we have wanted to make a robot out of it. There aren't many kits out there yet that let you do that (yet). This HowTo shows you how we hacked together a motor controller from the Raspberry Pi and used it to control LEGO MINDSTORMS Motors.
