Beautiful images of one of our most precious resources from Mustafah Abdulaziz via booooooom:

His on-going project Water has received support from the United Nations, WaterAid, WWF, VSCO, and Google, has been reviewed by Phaidon, Monopol and published in Der Spiegel, The New Yorker, TIME and The Guardian. Worked as the first contract photographer for The Wall Street Journal. In 2012, was named one of PDN’s 30 Emerging Photographers to Watch. His work has been exhibited at Strandvägen in Stockholm, The Scoop in London, Brooklyn Waterfront in New York City, König Galerie in Berlin and the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C.

Water is a member of the Blue Earth Alliance, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, and available for tax-deductible support. Visit the project page to find out more: Water + Blue Earth Alliance.

Here’s an excerpt from Vice’s interview with Mustafah Abdulaziz:

What’s the most important message you hope to pass on with this project?

I would say that the aim of my project is to show people that we are not inseparable from our environment, and highlight the things we do wrong on a perpetual basis. We also need to understand that the same problems affect all of us in the same way—they are not a problem for only certain parts of the world.

At the same time, the world is a beautiful place, so don’t I want people to look at my work and only think about how screwed we are? I want people to be inspired by the beauty I photograph—to feel motivated to change their ways. Which shows that I believe the water problem can be solved.

Fun project from kevino and Sonia Wong on hackster.io:

We love clowning around in a digital photo booth at parties, then sharing the photos online. But who wants to risk a laptop getting doused with margaritas or champagne?

Cheap single-board computers make it easy to roll your own standalone photo booth that can connect to the Internet with no help from your precious PC. Here’s a simple project that’s based on the Raspberry Pi and Pi Camera Module. It’s touchscreen-controlled by partygoers, and it automatically emails your photos (if you wish) and uploads them to Google Photos where anyone with the password can see and share. All the software is open source.

We (me and pals at WyoLum) originally made a Raspberry Pi photo booth to write custom images for E Ink badges at the Open Hardware Summit in 2013, pairing the Pi with our popular AlaMode Arduino-compatible development board. The touchscreen display we used was nice, but expensive. Since then, the official Raspberry Pi Touchscreen has been released, and the new Raspberry Pi Model 3 has integrated Wi-Fi. Perfect for this project!

So we redesigned our OpenSelfie photo booth as the TouchSelfie, and tied it all together with a minimal set of mounting brackets you can 3D print (or laser-cut) to mount the whole thing on a tripod. You can also design and build your own amusing enclosure if you prefer

Lifehacker picks its 10 best pi projects for beginners, including our Raspberry Pi Wearable Time Lapse Camera Tutorial.

Maybe you picked up a Raspberry Pi for the holidays, or you’ve been sitting on one of the super versatile, palm-sized computers for a while now. If you’ve been wondering how to get started with yours, or what you could build that’s worthwhile, here are ten great ideas.

French car manufacturer’s open source car uses two Raspberry Pis #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

French car manufacturer Renault are to launch an open source car platform called POM (based on Twizy), it was announced at CES last week. What seems to have slipped under the radar is that there are two Raspberry Pis on board! Businessman and author Chris Anderson was lucky enough to get a glimpse of the internals of the car and took the photo above, tweeting it later. They appear to be Pi 2s (because they’ve got wifi dongles, I’m making that leap in logic) and are using Sukkin Pang’s CAN-bus HATs, which are designed and manufactured in the UK, to talk to, I assume, the engine and onboard diagnostics. Read more about POM here.

Detect Ripening Fruit with an Electronic Nose #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

We love this project and its creativity! From Craig on Hackaday.io:

Our organization (Concrete Jungle) picks fruit from urban fruit trees around the Atlanta area. One problem that we face is that as we grow, it becomes harder and harder for us to keep track of our trees — they all produce on slightly different schedules (or not at all) and we need to know what each is doing before we can plan a fruit-picking event.

We’ve teamed up with Carl DiSalvo’s Public Design Workshop at Georgia Tech to try to create an electronic nose that can smell fruit ripening in a tree. This way the tree could let us know when it’s ready to be picked. We’re trying to work with cheap Taguchi gas sensors as you might find on Sparkfun. Although these sensors are sold as a propane/alcohol/… sensor, they are not particularly specific to those gases. We’re hoping that by using an array of these sensors we’ll be able to tease out a meaningful signal.

Amazon Dash Button Hack – Silent Doorbell #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

via RaspiHub

Constantly looking out the window so that you can intercept visitors before they ring the doorbell? Tired of the dogs and baby going crazy anytime it rings? Don’t want to spend a fortune on a “smart” solution?

Making a silent doorbell is as easy as hacking a $5 Amazon Dash Button! The only other thing you need is a computer that’s always at home – like, say, that Raspberry Pi you’ve got sitting around. Get text notifications anytime someone pushes your new door bell and keep the whole house happy. (It’s even cooler to get notifications if you have a smartwatch!)
