Well, with the main part of my social network done, I am taking a long break from it and focusing on my new project: The Offline Coder Computer. When I looked into the project, I noticed that I would have to get the 7.4V Lithium Ion battery to both the Raspberry Pi and a LCD which would be a little over my skill level.
Modifying the idea a lot was a good idea, and in my opinion more fun.
Instead I will be making a J.A.R.V.I.S(from the Iron Man 3 movie) type smart computer using my Raspberry Pi. I have been wanting to do this since I watched the movie. It will use the same battery that was meant for the portable computer and can fit in a backpack. It will use a bluetooth headset so you can tell it commands via voice and it will reply.
The cool thing is it will only respond to your voice!!! You can also ask the computer respond to someone else if you want.
You can control it from the web using a Ruby On Rails Web App.
It will be like a human, with a robotic arm and it will learn like a human and not be programmed. It will know how to do basic functions, but it will piece together words to make commands, based on prior knowledge.
This is a quick tutorial on how to get started programming:
From an iPad!!
First download the Python app from the App Store. You can choose the version by I prefer Version 2.5.
Open the app and then at the prompt type:
print “Hello World”
Then you can get started coding on iOS
I thought you might like to see a sneak peak of my social network. If you want to see the code, go to www.github.com/blueexpert11/Bounce.
Here are some screen shots:
This is the profile page.
Here is the messaging inbox.
Here is me logging in.
This is the home page.
As I said before, tutorials in a book format will be coming soon!
I would first like to finish the major development of Bounce before writing a new social network just for this blog.
I have been taking some time of trying to find new tutorial content and have been instead working on a Social Network in Ruby On Rails. On completion of the social network (which believe me, will be at the end of my summer holiday) I will be writing a book called Making a Social Network: How to Make a Social Network and What Not To Expect from It. The code will be open source and free. If any Rails Developers are out there and want to contribute just send me an email or join the project at Github (blueexpert11/boucne)
Regardless of the Social Network I will continue to write tutorials, though no long series tutorials.
