Tag / Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries. The original model became far more popular than anticipated, selling outside its target market for uses such as robotics. It does not include peripherals (such as keyboards, mice and cases). However, some accessories have been included in several official and unofficial bundles.


Programmable Stick: Part 1

For a long time I've wanted to create an interface to automate gameplay on consoles, but my electrical know-how was next to non-existent (I want to blame a bad experience with attempting to repair an Amiga 500 PSU to my hesitation to play with anything that had an electrical current). To do this, I needed a way to interface each of the controllers input circuits and complete the connection to fire off the request, which is easy enough in theory, but when you pull apart a controller these days, the circuitry is a little more compact than the controllers back in the day.
