Raspberry Pi Detects Malware Using Electromagnetic Waves

A team of researchers from the Research Institute of Computer Science and Random Systems (IRISA) has developed a malware detection system using a Raspberry Pi that scans devices for specific electromagnetic (EM) waves. The group consists of Annelie Heuser, Matthieu Mastio, Duy-Phuc Pham, and Damien Marion .

Because the Pi focuses on the EM field, users don’t need to install anything on the target device. Instead, everything is handled via physical, external forces and is outside any software-level control potential malware has on a given machine.

The Raspberry Pi is trained with both safe and malicious data sets to help

Raspberry Pi Fridge Magnet Plays News When it Detects People

Staying informed is always a challenge and definitely takes time, but what if we could automate our news consumption on a semi-regular basis? Before you say, “Get me out of here!” check out this awesome news-playing Raspberry Pi fridge magnet project created by Reddit user Frakman1.

Using a PIR motion sensor, the Pi automatically plays recent news clips when a person walks by. The best Raspberry Pi projects are the ones you can modify, and there’s no reason you couldn’t adjust this project to play any audio file you want! What’s fun about this design is how accessible it is
