Processing, no Raspberry, e outra Impressora 3D portátil...

Atenção, não estou a falar Portinglês, Processing é uma Linguagem de programação, que se pode usar no Raspi!
Mais um Artigo impecável do Designspark...

Processing on the Raspberry Pi

A look at getting the Processing programming language and IDE up and running on a Raspberry Pi, and example code working with the TI Chronos eZ430 development kit.
Processing is a programming language that is targeted at “non-programmers” and with a particular focus on artists and designers. But the Processing syntax and IDE will be familiar to many more as they form the basis of the Arduino development environment, and Processing applications are similarly referred to as “sketches”.
Built on top of the Java programming language, Processing provides a much simplified syntax and graphics programming model. And as with Arduino development it can be extended via libraries that make easy work of more advanced things like network programming.

Mais outra, que tal os Jogos Electrónicos, como os que se jogavam, e ainda jogam, nos Cafés, mas no Raspi?

Raspberry Pi Arcade

I grew up in the dawn of arcade games, and living at the coast meant that I had access to a couple of decent arcades where I could play all the classics as they came out - Space Invaders, Galaxian, Defender, Moon Cresta, Galaga, Phoenix, Star Wars, Tron and Tempest all stick in my mind, but Mr Do! and Bubble Bobble were my all time favourites.

The Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) has been around for years now, and has found its way into all sorts of places (a version was even available in the Apple Appstore just before last Christmas just in time for me to get an iCade). Of course the Raspberry Pi is quite capable of running many of the older games, which should include all the true classics. In this post I'm going to run through how I got MAME going on my RPi.

E já vimos isto, mas cá vai mais outra Impressora 3D de Viagem, numa Mala e tudo!

MIT students reveal PopFab, a 3D printer that fits inside a briefcase

By Jonathan Fincher
 There are plenty of different 3D printers to choose from these days, from the popular Makerbot Thing-O-Matic to the budget-priced Solidoodle. These all have one drawback however in that they aren't exactly portable. Most need to be disassembled to be moved and even the fully-assembled Cubify printer isn't really built for travel. But now, two MIT students have developed the PopFab, a machine that does 3D printing and more, all while fitting inside a small suitcase.
The PopFab was developed by students Ilan Moyer and Nadya Peek, from the MIT CADLab and MIT Center for Bits and Atoms respectively. Billed as a "portable fabrication multi-tool," the machine was revealed through an online video showing the whole device folding out from a metal briefcase and almost immediately printing a small object after a bit of setup. All it takes is to attach the printing head to the fold-out arm, feed in some printing material, and connect a computer to transmit a design.
