  • Give Your Raspberry Pi Night Vision With the PiNoir Camera

    The Raspberry Pi and Pi2 are economical little ARM machines which can happily run Linux. The popularity of the Raspberry Pi and compatible Pi 2 models means that a great deal of accessories are available. These accessories include the PiNoir Camera and 4D Systems' touch-sensitive, 3.5-inch display.

    The PiNoir camera is so named because it does not have an Infrared Filter (no-IR). Without an IR filter the camera can be used at night, provided you have an infrared light source. With night vision you can use the Raspberry Pi as an around-the-clock surveillance camera monitor, baby monitor, or to give vision to a robot. The PiNoir Camera comes without a case, so you might like to pick up something to help protect it.

Leaked images of Samsung Z3 with Tizen 3.0? We don’t think so

Filed under
Linux

This morning there have been images flying around the web about a Samsung Z3 Smartphone running Tizen 3.0. Well, we don’t think so. The image shows the Tizen Store being accessed by a device, but the Z3 hasn’t been given Tizen Store access permission yet, and this handset with this firmware would not get in. Also Tizen 3.0 on a Smartphone has a long way to get released as it is still under heavy development, so yet again, we don’t think so.

Filed under
Linux

I don't know about you, but I've always found the idea of operating system kernels to be some mysterious and esoteric programming skill. Its importance cannot be overstated of course, but I've always felt that kernel programming and regular programming were two very separate skills.

I've recently had some patches merged into the Linux kernel, and thought it might be interesting to describe what I learnt from this brief dip into kernel development and how someone who is new to it might go about getting into this space.
