Pi powered Haunted TV

As seen from movies many will know how scary it is to have a TV that switches on by itself!

Raspberry pi powered Haunted TV
Raspberry pi powered Haunted TV

Most scary part being TV displaying your Own live image on screen, Well this interesting Raspberry pi project was made from old TV, Visual shown below gives you overall look of project!

How Raspberry pi haunted TV works

When the TV is powered for the first time Raspberry pi turns on and starts to run python script on setup mode

At first code is written as not to detect face, on the press of remote button signal will be sent to pi as result another script starts to run

Now hidden camera which is already install on TV takes a picture and activates LED as soon remote button was pressed

This will be haunted picture and will be shown in TV screen

When button is clicked TV will turn off and script will go to ready mode

In this mode code will look if face would stare on frame for more than four seconds, if Yes TV will turn to ON

Now code tracks the face so as it shouldn’t look away from screen

This haunted image which was fed earlier will be shown on screen as face looks away from screen, and disappears when face is detected

Then the TV turns off when cycle is complete and goes to off mode

Sand Table using Raspberry pi

This is one of creative projects made using pi which draws beautiful images on sand table, this looks beautiful when illuminated with RGB LED lights

Simple image of heart shape from this project is shown below

How This sand table works

Pi controls the movement of stepper motors one stepper will be responsible for rotational movement other will be for linear control

The mechanism of movement is similar to camera slider here additional things are rotating base and instead of camera magnet head will be connected

Image pattern as given in script will be drawn on sand

Previously drawn image will be erased before machine starts to draw new pattern

Water cooled Raspberry pi 4 Cluster

Have a look at this beautiful cooling system, With these cluster system there is no problem of your Pi getting over heat

Water cooled Raspberry pi 4 Cluster
Water cooled Raspberry pi 4 Cluster

Quick overview of this project

Clusters were built using laser cut acrylic sheets that resembles pi logo and water cooler modules were place beneath it

Total of 8 pi boards were use to make this system and all of them have their own individual cooling module

Entire setup was support on wooden board that was later cut too

Small touch screen display shows real time status of all the components like heat of clusters

Cooling components filled with water and some colors gives mesmerizing appearance for this project

For final touch i use couple of ARGB strips at back side of this setup

Lastly Install pi operating system and upload to Board

Complete build tutorial video of this pi project with some updates is here

Mask Distributing Robot

How cool is it when someone reminds you to wear mask/supply mask when you go out of house

Well this Raspberry pi base robot wanders around house with full of masks so that you can pick o wear one if you keep forgetting

Small holder which can carry mask is supported by wheels

App is connect with raspberry pi via smartphone

It also displays reminder texts

Solenoid are connect to each of piano keys to which power will be distributed from relay module

Script written in pi board reads the Melodic lines which will later be play using solenoid switches

As an upgrade Pi camera was add to this system that can capture unknown musical scores

Musical score images aka Melodic lines are send to raspberry pi that read them and later play it on piano

How LED IOT clock is built

Though the project looks complex it works on very simple logic

Here individual letters have their own ARGB LED with which color and speed of blink can be controlled

Raspberry Pi board will be sending real time data to these LED which later will be shown on board

Complete tutorial on how to make IOT world clock Here

Raspberry Pi Home Security System

This smart device will be attached to your door and only after successful entry of pin you will be allowed to enter without any alarm coming off!

Behind the door working logic

Here small magnet type switch will be use to activate the system, initially set the code for this system

Once everything is setup after upload of several codes

you will be allowed bypass door on successful pin entry, on fail attempt buzzer will alert

Geiger counter using Raspberry pi

Newbies might be wondering what Geiger counter is well its an instrument to detect and measure ionizing radiations

This is made from brass body with some copper along with raspberry pi with nixie tubes and LED’s
