Inside this issue of Raspberry Pi Geek, we have lots of the amazing apps and cool projects you’ve come to expect from Raspberry Pi Geek. We’ll explore 3D printing and show you how to make a cool toy using MakerBot Replicator 2 and the OpenSCAD CAD system. We also look at the Odroid-U3 single-board computer, which is more powerful than the Pi and runs Android; adding a touch interface to your project using Electric Paint and Touch Board; and much more!
Inside the pages of this issue of Raspberry Pi Geek, we've got lots of the amazing apps and cool projects you've come to expect from Raspberry Pi Geek. We'll explore the new Raspberry Pi Model B+ including an interview with Eben Upton about the recent changes and what they mean for the Raspberry Pi. We'll also look at running a greenhouse with your Arduino, using the Hover board to detects hand movements, swipes, and taps, we check out the ExpEYES (Experiments for Young Engineers and Scientists) kit, a powerful science lab for the Raspberry Pi, and much more!
Inside the pages of this issue of Raspberry Pi Geek, we've got lots of the amazing apps and cool projects you've come to expect from Raspberry Pi Geek. We'll show you how to control your Pi from the web with WeblOPi. You'll also find out how to build a 5-volt power supply to run your Pi on battery power. We'll discuss some tools for running an electronic information screen from your Raspberry Pi, and we'll describe how to use your Pi as a tool for managing slide show presentations.
If you’re looking for new ideas and new projects to add some spice to your Pi-filled life, check out this issue of Raspberry Pi Geek.
Pibrella Board: Simplify wiring with this easy Rasp Pi add-on board
MouseAir: Entertain your kitty and learn about the Raspberry Pi.
Vehicle Monitoring: A student race car team uses Rasp Pi to monitor vehicle sensors.

This issue rolls out a whole round of inspiring Pi projects for the hobbyist, child, and engineer in all of us. Want to know how to power your Raspberry Pi on a desert island? Our lead story describes some techniques for sizing a wind turbine.
We also explore RISC OS, an operating system designed for ARM processors that is gaining new attention with the rise of the Raspberry Pi. We show you how to set up your Pi as a backup device for Apple Time Machine clients, and we look at some tricks for using Rasp Pi on a wireless network. Other articles describe how to set up a homegrown spy cam, use your Pi for instant messaging, and install a web-ready LAMP stack. We also keep up our tradition of including a cool Arduino project (in this case, a temperature sensor with Arduino’s new Yún board), and we cover some basic skills for Pi newbies, including Linux file management and more Scratch programming.
We bring you some more practical experiments this month. You'll learn about BrickPi, a product that lets you use your Raspberry Pi as a built-in control center for Lego Mindstorms robots. We'll also show you how to configure your Pi so you can control it using a standard infrared TV remote. We'll employ the Pi on the network as a DHCP/DNS server, and we'll even show you hot to control a legacy Nikon film camera with a Raspberry Pi.
