Robotic controlling with a new glassy UI and fixes

by megamikey

Hey we released a new cool glass UI for our easy robotic controlling app for Raspberry Pi and Arduino. A major fix is also that now all the controllers can be used at the same time. Now only the premium version has an option to secure the controller interfaces, ask us more about that feature. This version is much easier and faster to install and start https://vimeo.com/338411915

Controlling UI look and feel in the image attached.

Here's more info about the new version http://gigabrain.io/movements/install

L298n motor driver with Blynk

by TheJadeRabbit

Hi, I could use some help with getting my project to work. What I want to do is control 2 DC motors with an L298n driver and a Raspberry Pi 3 from my phone via Blynk. I also want to control the motors with the joystick widget in the Blynk app. I got my Pi connected to my phone over wifi with Blynk, but I am having trouble getting the Python for the joystick to control the motors with the driver. If you could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Detecting read from g_mass_storage

by LeatherWing

Hi all!
I have a project that I started with the MagPi USB flash drive article here with a few things modified. (https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/pi-zero-w-smart-usb-flash-drive/) File share works great. The USB is read only but for my needs that's perfectly fine.
What I would like to do is trigger an event every time the storage is accessed via g_mass_storage. In my case trigger a camera to take a picture every time a part of a file is read by the host device. This would be used to create a time lapse of an SLA printer similar to the way OctoPi works. The printer only seems to read one layer at a time so using that as a trigger would be ideal.
The MagPi had a watchdog event for every time a new file was added by Samba, but in my case I need to trigger based off a read of the modprobe g_mass_storage device.
