element14 unveils Raspberry Pi Projects
element14 has launched its latest online resource, Raspberry Pi Projects, providing a single location for Raspberry Pi owners of all skill levels to highlight their creations and learn how to move onto the next level.
Making it easier for users to try out and store more Pi projects, element14 is also launching an 8GB Raspberry Pi bundle available for $40.
The new pack incorporates a Raspberry Pi B Board and an 8GB SD card with the all six of the official Raspberry Pi Foundation approved operating systems preloaded on the memory card. The 8GB SD card provides users with all the space they need to create and store their Raspberry Pi projects.
Members of the element14 Community are being encouraged to contribute to the library by adding their own projects to the catalogue, or rating and liking the works of others.
Some of the first projects to be added include:
For beginners, a step-by-step, guide detailing how to turn the Raspberry Pi into a fully functional laptop and an introduction to controlling the Pi with an Xbox 360 controller
For more advanced users, an image based tutorial guiding developers through using their Raspberry Pi as a flow meter for measuring water usage a and a more software orientated, seasonal guide to creating a ‘Pumpkin Pi’ jack-o’-lantern, with web controlled lights and sound.
“One of the main things we hear from our Raspberry Pi customers is how they want to challenge themselves and take on more complex projects,” said Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Community, element14. “Our Community members have come up with some amazing projects and the Raspberry Pi Projects space is a great way of bringing this all together and allowing others to try it for themselves.
