Some of the (original) broken BiBlis from the Longmont Public Library. Don’t worry we’ll get them fixed up in no time.
Wondering how to change a Raspberry Pi to connect to a new wi-fi network? Login using: ssh pi@ipaddress (or simply connect to your HDMI monitor and a USB keyboard) pw: raspberry pi@bigboy:/ cd /etc/wpa_supplicant pi@bigboy: /etc/wpa_supplicant $ ls pi@bigboy:/etc/wpa_supplicant $ sudo nano wpa_supplicant.conf (edit the file to include the new network ssid and password and reboot)
We’d like to welcome 2 new robots to the BiBli family! Students from the Boulder Valley School District are working on a new robot swarm for their school. Meet Edgy (The Actual Britney Spears) and Sgt. Glue!
Creating an ‘image’ or a copy of an operating system can take quite a bit of time. And if you are using the command line to set-up your SD card it can be difficult to tell how much time you have left on the copy. To view the status of the ‘dd’ command simply open […]
Whether you are installing Linux, Raspbian or BiBli operating systems to your Raspberry Pi’s SD card the process is always the same. It does involve opening up the command line but it’s actually a great way to learn the basics of Linux. 1. The image, or compiled source code is going to be called filename.img. […]
Robots are so much fun. Over the past 4 years we’ve worked to create a hardware and software combination that was open and easy yet powerful. Qi Liu is a PhD candidate at CU’s College of Electrical Engineering. She’s also one of the original architects of the BiBli hardware and operating system. Recently she’s been […]
Greetings, we’re working on a product update which will make BiBli easier, faster and less expensive. Stay tuned for ordering information!
Following are the instructions for set-up and operation of a BiBli Developer Kit: 1. Place all parts on a clear desk. You should have a motor kit, a BiBli OS, BiBli wiring and a Raspberry Pi and battery. 2. Insert SD card into Raspberry Pi, plug in and power up. 3. BiBli connects to any […]
The most recent Raspberry Pi 3 and up come with integrated bluetooth. Which is nice. It lowers the cost and power usage and allows you to connect in and out of the Pi via any bluetooth device. But for the specific instance where you simply want to broadcast sound to an external speaker there are […]
There are some smart people involved in robotics. Throughout the United States go to any University and most high schools and you’re likely to find some sort of tinkering, coding, soldering and controlling some sort of robotics contraption. What’s happening is that products like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi have opened up access to low-cost […]
