Raspberry Pi Changes Games By Scanning Barcodes

Creating a custom interface is one of the most exciting aspects of creating a retro gaming system with the Raspberry Pi. Tons of themes and original UIs have emerged over the years, but Neil, from YouTube channel RMC – The Cave, has taken things to the next level by creating a retro game shop replica as part of his retro games museum that functions as a front end for his emulation platform.

Instead of selecting a game from a menu on the screen, users choose a game from the physical store shelves and scan it using a barcode scanner.

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 Mega Cluster Costs More Than $5,000 to Build

Just when you thought one Raspberry Pi was enough, Skynet Network stepped up with this awesome Raspberry Pi cluster project. According to Skynet Network, it’s dubbed the Raspberry Pi Mega Cluster and costs more than £4,000 (approximately $5,372) to build.

The best Raspberry Pi projects typically have at least one Pi but this one has 83. As impressive as that sounds, the original plan was to pack it full of 100 Raspberry Pis. However, network latency had too much impact on performance for that many to be practical.

The cluster is constructed primarily using Raspberry Pi 3Bs but a single

Raspberry Pi BMO is Fully Assembled and Ready for OctoPrint

In a recent episode of our weekly Raspberry Pi podcast, The PiCast, we had the honor of featuring developer and Artist Geeky Faye Art who’s been hard at work creating a huge BMO figure, a character from the show Adventure Time, with a Raspberry Pi inside. According to Geeky Faye Art, the goal of this project is to create a figure that looks like BMO, talks like BMO, and runs OctoPrint, an open-source system developed just for the Raspberry Pi to help manage and control 3D printers.

Inside BMO, you’ll find a Raspberry Pi with a

Raspberry Pi Launches New Website For Its Hardware | Tom’s Hardware

 In a surprise move, Raspberry Pi today announced that a new website has been created to support Raspberry Pi devices, sales and documentation. This marks a change from a single website from 2011 which served both educational outreach and sales. Another change is Raspberry Pi’s social media presence, with the original Raspberry Pi twitter account focusing on the hardware, and another representing the charity and educational outreach of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Raspberry Pi Trading and the Raspberry Pi Foundation have long been separate entities. Raspberry Pi Trading is responsible for the hardware engineering and sales of Raspberry Pi while

Windows 11 on Raspberry Pi Just Got Easier

It’s been possible to install Windows on Raspberry Pi boards for a while now, but it’s never been what you’d call easy. We learnt via YouTuber leepspvideo that the WoR (Windows on Raspberry) project has been working hard behind the scenes to create a means to install Windows 11 to a Raspberry Pi via the Pi itself. But the news that user Botspot has released WoR-flasher, a script that completely automates the process of downloading, preparing and installing Windows 11 via a Raspberry Pi completely removing the need for a Windows machine to perform the installation process.

Raspberry Pi 4A Could Skip USB 3, Have PCIe Port

The Raspberry Pi 4 B has been on the market for more than two years and, during that time, we’ve seen a number of new, related models hit the shelves, including an 8GB Raspberry Pi 4, a Compute Module 4 and the Raspberry Pi 400, which is basically a Pi 4 inside a keyboard. However, there’s still been no Raspberry Pi 4 A to displace the Pi 3A+.

However, according to Raspberry Pi CEO and Founder Eben Upton, the company has a lot of ideas for a 4 Model A (aka 4A) and might even have built one already, if

The Compromises Of Raspberry Pi Hardware Documentation

[Rowan Patterson] informed us about a recent ticket he opened over at the Raspberry Pi Documentation GitHub repository. He asked about the the lack of updates to the Raspberry Pi 4’s USB-C power schematics for this board. You may recall that the USB-C power issue was covered by us back in July of 2019, yet the current official  Raspberry Pi 4 schematics still show the flawed implementation, with the shorted CC pins, nearly two years later.

[Alasdair Allan], responsible for the Raspberry Pi  documentation, mentioned that they’re in the process of moving their documentation from Markdown to AsciiDoc, and

How to Use Raspberry Pi to Farm Chia Coin

After you’ve gone through the process of building Chia Coin plots on a PC (see how to farm Chia Coin), there’s no need to waste the electricity and tie up expensive computer hardware keeping those plots connected to the Internet. Instead, it’s best to take an external drive or drive(s) with the plots on them and hook them up to a Raspberry Pi where they can stay online, without gulping down too much juice.

In this tutorial, we will create a custom Raspberry Pi Chia farming device powered by the latest Ubuntu 64-bit release for the Raspberry Pi. The
