The MagPi finds more energy with solar tracking

The MagPi - April 2014

The MagPi – April 2014

Check out the latest issue of  The MagPi, the magazine devoted to all things Raspberry Pi. The latest issue, for April, is number 22 and it’s available for free download.

This month it features the “Reflective Solar Tracker”, a solar cell with a Raspberry Pi that helps to improve energy capture by up to 140% (by tracking the sun).

There’s also a look at the Laika Explorer, fresh from KickStarter funding success, which is a digital Input/Output board for the Raspberry Pi with extra USB and expansion ports.

Plus, from the world of databases, there’s another look at using SQL to insert and view stored data. And there’s a home automation tutorial on controlling your garage door over the Internet. And much more…

The magazine is edited by Ash Stone.

As always you can view an electronic page turning version with issuu and also view it in the PDF format.
