Quick Overview


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.

The digital edition does not include the DVD/CD contents
