How to connect and control a Raspberry Pi WS2801 RGB LED Strip

Felix - 7. April 2017

One of the many Raspberry Pi projects is the lighting of rooms or objects. LED strips are particularly suitable for this purpose, because many individual LEDs are aligned and each individual LED can display all RGB colors. Thus, some projects such as room lighting, Ambilight or e.g. a Christmas tree lighting can be realized. The […]

Raspberry Pi Heartbeat / Pulse measuring

Felix - 23. March 2017

Not only with fitness watches, but also with the Raspberry Pi it is possible to measure pulse / heart rates. With a small module – the Raspberry Pi pulse sensor – you can easily measure your own pulse and thus monitor permanently your health condition. This sensor can also be used in mobile Raspberry Pi […]

Let Raspberry Pi’s communicate with each other per 433MHz wireless signals

Felix - 26. October 2015

Maybe some of you thought about how to let some RaspberryPi’s communicate with each other wirelessly. For this purpose small 433MHz modules are ideal, which are already available for a few bucks. Therefore in this tutorial I want to show how two (or more) RaspberryPi’s can “talk” with each other. But do not worry, if […]
