Live Elektor Academy Seminar at electronica 2012 - The making of the Embedded Linux Board! Benedict Sauter is interviewed on the development of his famous Embedded Linux board and discuss updates on the latest applications, with in-depth technical questions from the audience!
Pi-Face Digital plugs directly onto the top of your Raspberry Pi, and allows you to sense and control the real world. Detect switch states, for example from a door sensor, a pressure pad or any number of other switch types. Then write your own software for Raspberry Pi that determines how to respond to that switch state. You can drive outputs to power motors, actuators, LEDs or anything you can imagine - including a twittering chicken!
