Notes taken during a talk given by Ben Nutall at PyConUK.
Book: Learning Python with Raspberry Pi, Alex Bradbury and Ben Everard.
Book: Adventures in Raspberry Pi – Carrie Anne Philbin
Experience: open a rasp pi: have a desktop, can open idle
Hardware: Now 40 GPIO pins on B+, same price
Add on camera available, 10MP??
Look at “import picamera”
– nice docs
Kids track to take photos wired button to board, took photos – based on a stock motion Lego scene
Another idea: Cat detector – also spray with water, then a video was sent to you tube ;)
Robotics – mini maker stuff -like a pi on wheels
Look at kick start for kit style projects
Free resources on their web site
Minecraft PI edition – limited installed by default
Energenie – remote switches for plug sockets can control via python/raspberry pi
sous-vide cooking – used to monitor temparture, turn off/on cooker – He tried the steak – Yum!

Pi Phone – is a proof of concept – need for proper open smart phone – not a Python project
Ans: can by the developer kit for the compute module for the R Pi
Also have a PiPad – a screen with a pi in it
*) What’s after B+
4 USB ports, etc
Continue developing the hardware
Look at PiFi or WiPi <-
