7 considerations to make when securing your Raspberry Pi

https://opensource.com/article/17/3/iot-security-raspberry-pi?sc_cid=7016000000127ECAAY The Raspberry Pi and many other inexpensive computer boards like it have become part of the “Internet of Things” or IoT revolution.  Because your Raspberry Pi is a Linux system, most advice for security on larger systems applies to your project, too.  Find out what sensible steps you can take to protect your Raspberry Pi

Scientists Connect A Human Brain To The Internet For The First Time | IFLScience

http://www.iflscience.com/brain/scientists-connect-human-brain-internet-first-time/ According to a press release, the team of neuroscientists and engineers have used an electroencephalogram (EEG) – a device that detects electrical signals in the brain – to transmit neurological activity to a cheap Raspberry Pi computer. This then live streams the data to a program running on a website that anyone can view at any time.

Secure Your Raspberry Pi Against Attackers

https://makezine.com/2017/09/07/secure-your-raspberry-pi-against-attackers/ Raspberry Pi boards are fantastic for any project — they’re cheap, easy to use, can run a wide range of possible operating systems, and provide programmable GPIO pins as well as multi-core CPU availability and multiple USB ports. You can use Raspberry Pi boards for all kinds of automation and information gathering projects. But,

Text Message Laundry Alert System – Hackster’s Blog

https://blog.hackster.io/text-message-laundry-alert-system-275a4b37296e Hacker Cabe Atwell has come up with a system that texts when the washer or dryer has finished its cycle. The device is, literally, a black box that sticks to either type of unit via a pair or rare earth magnets, then monitors movement using an accelerometer hooked up to a Raspberry Pi.  By hooking up the

Visual Development with XOD

https://hackaday.com/2017/08/13/visual-development-with-xod/ This looks interesting:  If you program microcontrollers like the Arduino, you should check out XOD and see how you like visually creating software. The software is open source and currently, can target the Arduino or Raspberry Pi. Some alternative visual programming tools: – LabVIEW RT or Matlab Simulink – both very powerful, very stable, closed source
