Learn to build and code with these cool projects that hack common things and interact with the real world. Use the Raspberry Pi to turn lights on in your room through Minecraft, spy on bluetooth signal devices to see who is in the area, build an MP3 player you can send music to wirelessly, create a motion-triggered camera to automatically take pictures of wildlife, and perform other dastardly deeds. These projects are super easy to follow for even the total beginner, and you'll end up with excellent products that are actually fun to use. Aldred explains the code in simple, step-by-steps ways that doesn't overwhelm, allowing the reader to pick up concepts and learn the specifics through building.
