Filmmaker and interactive video artist Tim Bartlett (who recently created the Kentile Floors Sign Illuminated project) shared with us a handy way to build an efficient video projection rig around your Raspberry Pi. Self-Contained Projector Rig:

I was recently asked to provide a video projection for the Proteus Gowanus ball, and assembled my most compact, self-contained projector rig to date. It involves Velcroing a Raspberry Pi computer to my homemade projector mount, which can be clamped anywhere with standard film grip gear. When plugged in, 1080p video plays in a loop. The projector is small but bright, a 3,000 lumen Optoma TW-1692.

Getting the video to start and loop automatically was fairly simple, but required several stops on the internet…

…I loaded the video onto the device, strapped everything together — projector, mount, Raspberry Pi (in a Pibow Timber case), multiplug, USB power adapter, HDMI cable, safety cable, extension cord — plugged it in, and it ran. Just like that.

Check out his step-by-step instructions and setup your own video looping Pi projection rig here!

Overview Adafruit s Raspberry Pi Lesson 6 Using SSH Adafruit Learning System

Adafruit’s Raspberry Pi Lesson 6. Using SSH: In this lesson you will learn how to remote control your Raspberry Pi over your local network using Secure Shell (SSH). A common reason for remote controlling your Pi from another computer is that you may be using your Pi solely to control some electronics and therefore not need a keyboard, mouse and monitor, other than for setting it up. It also can just save on desktop clutter, and the problem of having multiple keyboards and mice all over the place. (read more)
