Welcome to Learn to build it!
I this video I show you my control panel. I am using a Raspberry PI running apache server. The reason I chose this route is I can access the local webserver from my network wth any device. I can have as many devices hooked to it. I am not worried about someone else messing wiht me because they will have to be on my network.
I am not happy with Chromium browser because I want to run it in KIosk mode and I want to be able to kill the power on the fly with out closing the browser. As you will ...
This is a short update just showing why I chose to use a webserver and how easy it is to use from any device. I am still making changes to the control panel code and will start an area to give the code away. Right now it is all on one page and I would like to make it so you can add a button easier.
I have tested this from an Ipad, Iphone, MAC and PC. The issues currently are mostly on the phone when you rotate the screen the icons change to off and you have to wait for a recheck to see them ...

|My daughter came home and told me that she needed to build a volcano for school. She said it did not even have to do anyhting, but she wanted to do something different. So began the Raspberry PI volcano. She said it was suppose to be on a 1ft x 1ft board. Her volcano is not the typical cone shape. It was flat so that made it different, but in the end I think it turned out nice.The teacher was impressed. My daughter learned some fun things and we had the coolest ...|
|I had a request to take a servo and attach it to the Arduino. Watch the video, I know the text is hard to read in the video. Please see full code below. I added some extra things to make sure the servo can't be pushed to go beyond the limit because the servo I am using can only go 180. Some servos can go 360 degrees. I also added some code check if someone is pushing both buttons at once.|
|In this session I take a basic joystick and hook it to my arduino. This is simple but fun and I feel I could come up with some neat projects as I go along.|
