DIY Raspberry Pi Gaming Console using RetroPie
Raspberry Pi is an amazing credit-card sized computer most suited for IoT based applications and online servers like Print server, webserver, Media server. Many types of custom ROMs and custom operating systems are available for Raspberry Pi and you just need to burn the custom ROM on SD card and insert it in Raspberry Pi. Like Windows 10 and Android can be easily installed on Raspberry Pi.

There is a Python library to access all capabilities of an official WhatsApp on Raspberry pi – Yowsup. It enables you to use your WhatsApp account to exchange messages without the original app with your contacts. This library allows the user to create a full-fledged custom WhatsApp client on Raspberry Pi.

In this post we will build Raspberry Pi based Bluetooth Speaker by fusing the power of A2DP, Linux and audio codec to stream the data packets from an audio source to an audio sink wirelessly. To do so we are going to hack a little bit of Linux system and write a piece of code in bash and python and we will be in business.

Arduino Whistle Detector Switch using Sound Sensor
As a kid I was fascinated by a toy music car which gets triggered when you clap your hands, and then as I grew up I wondered if we can use the same to toggle lights and fans in our home. It would be cool to just turn on my Fans and lights by just clapping hands instead of walking my lazy self to the switch board. But often times it would malfunction as this circuit will respond to any loud noise in the environment, like a loud radio or for my neighbor’s lawn mower. Although building a clap switch is also a fun project to do.

Arduino HM-10 BLE Module Tutorial
The HM10 has become a very popular Bluetooth 4.0 BLE module. The HM10 is a Bluetooth 4.0 based module only, so it will not connect with Bluetooth 2/2.1 module such as HC-05, HC-06 and other Bluetooth modules. The HM10 is controlled via AT commands sent over the serial UART connection. HM-10 is a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module, to know more about this module, check out the HM-10 BLE datasheet.
