Product description

With more than 80 hacks, this book helps you turn the low-cost Raspberry Pi into the centerpiece of some cool electronics projects. The Pi's custom Linux distribution, Raspbian, has many alternative configurations that you can advantage of. Want to create a controller for a camera or a robot? Or set up alternative Linux distributions for media centers or PBX phone systems? That's just the beginning of what you'll find inside Raspberry Pi Hacks. This single-board computer was originally developed to help young people learn programming, but - predictably - the first adopters have been ingenious hardware hackers and hobbyists who are discovering new capabilities all the time. If you're looking to build either a software or hardware project with more computing power than Arduino alone can provide, Raspberry Pi is just the ticket. And the hacks in this book will give you lots of great ideas.
