Raspberry Pi Video Camera, BoneScript on the Beagle

NERP is not exclusively raspberry pi, the small computer interest group at
Pumping Station:One in Chicago.

We've been wondering what it's like to work with the new Raspberry Pi camera module. Tonight we're in luck. Craig LeMoyne has a Raspberry Pi project he'll show us tonight. In his words:

“I have an RPi Model A in my basement running Apache2 and taking pictures
using the new Camera Module every few seconds of a wet area that I *hopefully* managed to patch. It is good fun, and I can also do timelapse video from the pictures. The Pi will even compile the timelapse for me!”

Drew Fustini will introduce us to programming the Beagle Bone Black in BoneScript.
I've been saying for years that Javascript would be the next hot language for microcontrollers – maybe it's true. From

“BoneScript is a node.js-based language specifically optimized for the Beagle family and featuring familiar Arduino function calls, exported to the browser. Get started exploring the BoneScript Library to discover the great simplicity that is made possible by utilizing Linux in BoneScript.”

I enjoyed Craig's great presentation of the Pi camera - my first time seeing it up close (groovy we have a local Adafruit reseller, too:­. And also enjoyed seeing Brad's Pi camera, too. Here's some links I mentioned while demoing the BeagleBone Black (BBB):

Newark element14 has BBB in stock:­
[there's more than qty 20; the true stock level isn't revealed for some SKUs]

(posts on BoothStache [BeagleStache+Big Red Button], real-time with the PRU, LCD interfacing, ARM NEON instructions, etc)

Beaglebone black hackerspace challenge team:­
please join if interested! we are looking at using motion control for CNC project. using the real-time PRU to generate stepper pulses based on commands sent from (non-realtime) Linux userland.
