Raspberry Pi for Kids: Make Cool Gadgets, Mod Minecraft, Hack Wireless Signals, and More!
Learn coding and electronics through 12 original and daring projects that hack wireless signals.
Learn to build and code with these cool projects that hack common things and interact with the real world. Use the Raspberry Pi to turn lights on in your room through Minecraft; spy on bluetooth signal devices to see who is in the area; build an MP3 player you can send music to wirelessly; create a motion-triggered camera to automatically take pictures of wildlife; and other dastardly deeds. These projects are super easy to follow for even the total beginner, and you'll end up with excellent products that are actually fun to use. Aldred explains the code in simple, step by steps ways that doesn't overwhelm, but allows the reader to pick up concepts and learn the specifics through building.
