Tableau is a generative album whose sound continues to evolve—reacting to temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, and magnetic fields—until its user decides to turns the power off.

“I’ve been dreaming a lot of portable micro computers to create a generative music album,” reads the description of Giorgio Sancristoforo’s latest project. “Now this is finally a reality here is my first PGLP (Portable Generative LP) called “Tableau” and it will be soon released.”

To listen to Tableau, just plug it into a power source and it automatically begins to generate sound. It works with a portable 2A 5V battery pack, so it can be taken anywhere, making the possibilities of the album endless. Well, almost endless—according to Sancristoforo’s website, the number of mixes Tableau can produce is 4×12 factorial.

Sancristoforo isn’t picky about how Tableau is used. It is a Raspberry Pi2, so it can be modified with a micro SD card, or connected to a keyboard, monitor, and mouse to create a functioning computer. In the future, new albums will also be available on micro SDs, and new features and updates will be available for free.

There’s no word yet on when exactly Tableau will be released; Sancristi’s website simply says “soon”. But if you’re interested, make sure to keep tabs on the project, since a limited edition of just 50 will be available.

Remote Controlled Raspberry Pi Alarm Clock

chrisbeardy shared this project on Instructables Thanks for sending this in Chris!

I have awful trouble getting up in the morning, standard alarm clocks just can’t cut it as I simply turn it off and go back to bed. My issue is just getting out of bed, once I’m up and out the room I’m normally wide awake, I’ve tried putting the alarm in another room but then I often can’t hear it. For a while now I’ve been meaning to make my own system so I don’t rush around like a headless chicken in the mornings.

I’ve eventually got around to building it and this quick instructable should give a good overview of my process should you wish to build your own.

The concept is simple, the alarm goes off in your room for 10 seconds alerting you that you need to get up (I’m normally awake at the point the alarm goes off or easily woken making it even worse that I just stay in bed). It then goes silent for 2 minutes letting you go and get the IR remote from another room to turn off the alarm. You are now up and ready to get on with your day! If you don’t get up after the 2 minutes elapse the alarm will go off continuously until you go get the remote.

So lets get on with the making…

How to Measure Heartbeat and Pulse with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

From Raspberry Pi Tutorials:

Not only with fitness watches, but also with the Raspberry Pi it is possible to measure pulse / heart rates. With a small module – the Raspberry Pi pulse sensor – you can easily measure your own pulse and thus monitor permanently your health condition. This sensor can also be used in mobile Raspberry Pi applications (fitness tracker project? ;-)) thanks to low power consumption.

What is still needed and which libraries can be used are shown in this tutorial.

Talk Like Boba Fett With an Raspberry Pi Zero Amplified Voice Changer #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

While researching possible upgrades for my son’s Star Wars Bounty Hunter costume I came across an excellent blog post by Dave Shevett over at Planet-Geek.com on using a Raspberry Pi to create a voice changer for a halloween costume. This looked like something I could integrate into our lovingly constructed bounty hunter helmet.

From the tutorial

As most readers know, I’ve been working on my magic staff project for the last year and a half. I incorporated into the ‘Technomancer’ costume for Halloween and Arisia last year, and it was a big hit. I’m continuing to expand the costume, and one thing I’ve always wanted was a voice changer that would let me have a nice sepulchral voice to go with the creepy visage. My own voice from behind the mask is extremely muted, so it’s hard to carry on conversations or even talk to someone, so some external hookup was needed.

What surprised me was… no one had done this. I searched all over the web for realtime voice processing setups using a Raspberry Pi or Arduino, and while some folks had come close, no one (that I found) had put all the pieces together. So, it was time to do it!

In early 2017, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced a Google developer survey, which requested feedback from the maker community on what tools they wanted on the Raspberry Pi. The blog post says that Google has developed tools for machine learning, IoT, wearables, robotics, and home automation, and that the survey mentions face- and emotion-recognition, speech-to-text translation, natural language processing, and sentiment analysis. “The survey will help them get a feel for the Raspberry Pi community, but it’ll also help us get the kinds of services we need,” the post explains. Meanwhile, data scientists aren’t waiting around to put Google’s TensorFlow, an open source software library for machine learning, to work on the Raspberry Pi.

Let’s take a look at a few cool examples of machine learning with TensorFlow on the Raspberry Pi.
