  1. From Fortune Datko... on a simple script to change the hostname on a beaglebone black. Available via wget too: wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/jbdatko/d7fd5f4232db99f85e00/raw/636dd36cf34069489cd3988de7381d41c7595469/changehostname.sh chmod +x changehostname.sh
  2. From logic Supply: http://inspire.logicsupply.com/2014/06/beaglebone-pin-header-labels.html
  3. I was debugging the ADC on the beaglebone( and wanted ADC data on AIN5 to be streamed out. Found a good tip on stack overflow to repeat data every n(millisecond) using sleep( other than watch). Watch clears the screen every interval and does not allow fractional time. Below command will dump ADC data every 1/2 a second. while true; do cat /sys/devices/ocp.3/helper.15/AIN5; sleep .5; done
  4. Any full images of the multirotor? looks like the beaglebone goes under the board pictured above. It is at an offset though.
  5. Good idea @@t0m .. I'd be aware of static though.
  6. Tom from Gersic takes a Beaglebone Black with a TMP36 Temperature Sensor to track the temperature in another room of my house, and turn up the thermostat when the temperature difference between rooms gets to be greater than 1° C (1.8° F). It will then turn it back down again when the temperature difference equalizes or the temperature in the second room gets warm enough. He uses Twilio which sends sms messages from a beaglenest-server. Most of the logic is contained in the beaglenest-client script.
  7. TI E-Store is selling the BeagleBone for half price for $44.50.
  8. Have you tried looking at bone script. Comes with the beagle bone. I'd suggest you start small by toggling a few I/Os first and then graduate to complex control. I do not understand your question though. You can sample the input lines and send these to a PC serially. You will have to generate your own communication protocol. What does the PC do?
  9. I found this while searching for ways to power the beaglebone black using a LiPo battery. This author of this article seems to be using the power management TPS65217C chip's battery charging feature to charge the LiPo. The modifications can easily be un-done if you are not comfortable. I'm might do this for my BB. Will report on it.
  10. Adafruit has released a new case for the BeagleBone Black. It is in two parts and is press fitted. http://www.adafruit.com/products/1555
  11. Not available yet, but soon. The case is crafted out of three transparent Layers. Each layer is laser cut from high quality Acrylic and once stacked they securely contain a Beagle Bone Black from shorting out but maintaining a slim profile to show off the board. while leaving the primary ports, accessible and safe. This case also has buttons on the top of the case giving you access to the Power, Reset, and Boot buttons. Weighing only 2oz the case is lightweight and ready to protect your Beagle Bone Black. Held together by high quality black Nylon bolts and nuts allowing for no tools required
  12. Figuring out a way to get audio out, without purchasing the BeagleBone audio cape($45)...stumbled this on the BB google forums. https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/beagleboard/8Zc9DPd7rxc USB audio dongle from Amazon.
  13. Charles Steinkuehler with the BeBoPr Cape and using the onboard PRU for 3D printing. Still rough, but getting there. Git link: http://git.mah.priv.at/gitweb?p=emc2-dev.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/arm335x-hal-pru-tasks
  14. Charles Steinkuehler over at http://bb-lcnc.blogspot.co.at/ has a nice list of PRU related links:
