LXF231 Control the Raspberry Pi GPIO using Node-Red

Long time readers will know that I enjoy hacking in Node-Red and in this project I show you the basics to using it on the Raspbery Pi to control an LED. Because as we know, if we can control an LED we can do anything! Seriously!!

LXF233 Create custom QR codes!

QR codes, those funny looking barcodes that can contain URLs to websites, vcard (business cards) or be used to automatically login to WiFi AP, are great fun to hack with. In this project we make our own custom QR creator which includes images!

LXF234 Raspberry Pi: Amiga Action

The Amiga 500 was the computer that I first fell in love with. I had a C16 and C64 before it, but the Amiga changed my world. In this project we create an Amiga 500 using the Raspberry Pi and relive the halcyon days when 800kb was all the storage that you need for games and work!
