The goal of this abbreviated session was to figure out how PWM works in the trenches. However sold I am on the rPi in general, I have an uneasy feeling that the CPU is going to be… Continue reading rPi Hardware Servo Control
My next ‘real’ project involves implementing a web interface to control some of the things around swan tron global HQ, the half of the garage I reserved for my lab. I’ve been a huge fan of the Raspberry Pi since the mission was announced. Linux and IO…you have my attention. Add in the $35 price… Continue reading Python IO on rPi

My small sidekick and I shot an unboxing vid out of excitement: Need to put the new house… Continue reading Raspberry Pi Unboxing
