This book is for those who are new to the Raspberry Pi Zero ,Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi 3 and have some experience with the original Raspberry Pi models, and even for those budding secret agents who would like to use Pi Zero as a secret agent toolbox. No programming experience is assumed. Suitable for the novice and expert alike, each topic provides a fast and easy way to get started with exciting applications, with practical examples in every chapter.What You Will LearnInstall and configure the Raspbian Jessie operating system for maximum mischiefDetect an intruder with motion detection or a laser trip wire and set off an alarmListen in to conversations from a distance over BluetoothDistort your voice in weird and wonderful waysTrack the Pi's whereabouts using GPSConnect your Pi to the mobile Internet using a 3G dongle and make yourself anonymous on the netDisplay secret messages and codes to fellow agents on a LED displayIn Detail
This book is for all mischievous Raspberry Pi owners who'd like to see their computer transform into a neat spy gadget to be used in a series of practical pranks and projects. No previous skills are required to follow along, and if you're completely new to Linux, you'll pick up much of the basics for free.
We'll help you set up your Raspberry Pi Zero , Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 and guide you through a number of pranks and secret agent techniques that are so inconspicuous yet high on mischief. You'll learn how to configure your operating system for maximum mischief and start exploring audio, video, or Wi-Fi techniques. We'll show you how to record, listen, or talk to people from a distance and how to set up your own phone network. Then, you'll plug in your webcam and set up a motion detector with an alarm and find out what the other computers on your Wi-Fi network are up to. Once you've mastered the techniques, we'll combine them with a battery pack and GPS for the ultimate off-road spy kit.Style and Approach
This easy-to-follow guide is for budding secret agents who want to create tools for mischief, stealth, and reconnaissance. It's full of fun, practical examples and easy-to-follow recipes, guaranteeing maximum mischief for all skill levels.
This book is for anyone who is interested in building a modular home security system from scratch using a Raspberry Pi board, basic electronics, sensors, and simple scripts. This book is ideal for enthusiastic novice programmers, electronics hobbyists, and engineering professionals. It would be great if you have some basic soldering skills in order to build some of the interface modules.What You Will LearnUnderstand the concepts behind alarm systems and intrusion detection devicesConnect sensors and devices to the on-board digital GPIO ports safelyMonitor and control connected devices easily using Bash shell scriptingBuild an I/O port expander using the I2C bus and connect sensors and anti-tamper circuitsCapture and store images using motion detectors and camerasAccess and manage your system remotely from your mobile phoneReceive intrusion alerts and images through your e-mailBuild a sophisticated multi-zone alarm systemIn Detail
The Raspberry Pi is a powerful low-cost credit-card-sized computer, which lends itself perfectly as the controller for a sophisticated home security system. Using the on-board interfaces available, the Raspberry Pi can be expanded to allow the connection of a virtually infinite number of security sensors and devices. The Raspberry Pi has the processing power and interfaces available to build a sophisticated home security system but at a fraction of the cost of commercially available systems.
Building a Home Security System with Raspberry Pi starts off by showing you the Raspberry Pi and how to set up the Linux-based operating system. It then guides you through connecting switch sensors and LEDs to the native GPIO connector safely, and how to access them using simple Bash scripts. As you dive further in, you'll learn how to build an input/output expansion board using the I2C interface and power supply, allowing the connection of the large number of sensors needed for a typical home security setup.
In the later chapters of the book, we'll look at more sophisticated topics such as adding cameras, remotely accessing the system using your mobile phone, receiving intrusion alerts and images by e-mail, and more.
By the end of the book, you will be well-versed with the use of Raspberry Pi to power a home-based security system that sends message alerts whenever it is triggered and will be able to build a truly sophisticated and modular home security system. You will also gain a good understanding of Raspberry Pi's ecosystem and be able to write the functions required for a security system.Style and approach
This easy-to-follow guide comprises a series of projects, where every chapter introduces a new concept and at the end of the book, all these concepts are brought together to create an entire home security system. This book features clear diagrams and code every step of the way.
As more and more digital tools are developed into an apparently infinite repertoire of socio-technical functions, critical questions concerning these cultural and technological shifts are often eclipsed by the seductive aesthetic and the alluring futuristic imaginary that parametric design tools and their architectural products and discourses represent.
The Politics of Parametricism addresses these issues, offering a collection of new essays written by leading international thinkers in the fields of digital design, architecture, theory and technology. Exploring the social, political, ethical and philosophical issues at stake in the history, practice and processes of parametric architecture and urbanism, each chapter provides different vantage points to interrogate the challenges and opportunities presented by this latest mode of technological production.

If a doctor prescribes an excellent remedy, and the patient observes some of the instruction but neglects the others, and the remedy doesnt hold, no blame should rest on the doctor or his practice but the blame should reside entirely with the patient. So, it is also with religion.
Religion itself remains innocent, and must be considered on its own.
