10 Cool and Easy DIY Raspberry Pi Projects for Makers

Here are the best 10 raspberry pi projects that you can make easily with DIY instructions including circuit design and source codes.

Simple Raspberry Pi Robot

This simple tutorial will show you to make a Raspberry pi robot which avoids obstacles and help you get started on building robots using python.

Raspberry Pi Powered Weather Station

DIY weather stations are a cool way to monitor the weather in your area for a super accurate look at what’s happening directly around you. Instructables user kkingsbury shows off how you can build your own powered by a Raspberry Pi.

Raspberry Pi Emergency Lamp

In this session we are going to make a 9WATT Emergency Lamp using Raspberry Pi and Python. This lamp will automatically detect the darkness and absence of AC power supply, and light up when there is power failure.

Streaming Internet Radio

You have a ton of options for accessing your computer’s music library from your stereo, but most require a bit of technical know-how to actually use. You can build a jukebox with a Raspberry Pi, a tiny micro-computer, that anyone can use, even if they don’t know what a Raspberry Pi is.

Raspberry Pi Wall Mounted Google Calendar

Recently I purchased my first home. In the kitchen there was a small TV wall mounted however the TV itself was faulty so I was wondering, what should I do with this wall bracket since I didn’t really want a TV in the kitchen area. Then it dawned on me, instead of using a paper calendar with tiny little boxes to write things in I want my Google calendar on the wall. To tackle this instructable you should have a general understanding of home networking and computing, some linux experience wouldn’t go astray but is not really necessary. If you run into something you don't understand just remember google search is your friend. Equipment you will need Home network (wireless if you can't run a cable to the Pi) Raspberry Pi (I've used the model B) SD card 2GB or larger AC Adaptor (I used a USB wall charger for ...

Raspberry Pi Surveillance Robot

In this DIY project we built a web controlled surveillance robot using raspberry pi and webcam. We used “Motion” for getting live Video feed from USB camera and used “Flask” for sending commands from webpage to Raspberry Pi using python script.

Raspberry Pi Garage Door Opener

Hello Everyone! This instructable explains how I setup a Raspberry Pi to open my garage door using a smarthphone. While this has been done before, I thought I'd post my solution. This was my first hardware project and instructable ever and I'm sure I made some mistakes. So, when you find one let me know!  Project Overview: What we will be doing is turning the Raspberry Pi into a small web server. When you access the webserver from your browser of choice, you will have a big button that triggers the garage door via a relay. We will wire a very basic circuit to the Pi's GPIO pins and upload a website that triggers the circuit. When the relay is triggered, it closes the circuit hooked up to the garage motor and opens the garage. Why would anyone want to do this? Well, my garage door opener was broke and ...

Raspberry Pi Compact Camera

I'm so excited about this new project! A truly compact and portable Raspberry Pi Camera and it's easy as anything to build! I first thought about building a Raspberry Pi Camera after seeing the SnapPiCam instructable guide. This is a clever little project, which uses a LiPo battery to power a Raspberry Pi model A. But it got me thinking could I do something even more compact which is even simpler to build? The real challenge is powering this little baby. Where the SnapPiCam is using a separate battery, converter and charging unit I've used the PiJuice. It's basically an all in one battery module for the Raspberry Pi (complete with our revolutionary PiAnywhere technology – the best way to take your Pi off the grid!) and it's an ideal integrated power solution for a DIY Compact Camera.I've also decided to use the Raspberry Pi a+ as it's the cheapest ...

Raspberry Pi Security System

This is a low cost simple Raspberry Pi based Intruder Alert System, which not only alert you through email but also sends the picture of Intruder when it detects any.

Magpi Radio

This is a follow-up to a previous post describing Magpi Radio. Read that first if you’re curious about the project. In this post I’ll describe the technical details of Magpi Radio (with a link to the code) and show some process.
