I’ve seen an very interesting LEGO construction at Hannover IdeenExpo. A near full automated paper cube production machine.

Das Raspberry-Pi Maskottchen „Babbage“ machte am vergangen Samstag in einem Höhenballon und ausgestattet mit Raspberry-Pi-Elektronik einen spektakulären Ausflug in die Stratosphäre bis er in einer Höhe von knapp 39 Kilometern – vermutlich auf Grund eines versagenden Widerstandes – aus dem Ballon fiel ….

An easier way to update the firmware of your Raspberry Pi it to use rpi-update written by Hexxeh.

To install the tool, run the following command:

sudo wget http://goo.gl/1BOfJ -O /usr/bin/rpi-update && 
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/rpi-update

If you get errors relating to certificates, then the problem is likely due to one of two things. Either the time is set incorrectly on your Raspberry Pi, which you can fix by simply setting the time using NTP. The other possible issue is that you might not have the ca-certificates package installed, and so GitHub’s SSL certificate isn’t trusted. If you’re on Debian, you can resolve this by typing:

sudo apt-get install ca-certificates

To then update your firmware, simply run the following command:

sudo rpi-update

To upgrade/downgrade to a specific firmware revision, specify it’s Git hash as follows:

rpi-update <git hash> 

If you’d like to set a different GPU/ARM memory split, then define gpu_mem in /boot/config.txt.
