I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3 which i want to connect to via SSH from my Android tablet or phone when i am not in range of my home router.

My requirements are for when the pi is at home it connects to my home router or other known routers so it is available on the local network. If no router is found when it is started up then it will create a wifi hotspot, which is not rooted to the Internet, so i can SSH to the RPi from another device and control the camera and run other custom scripts.


It was announced in February 2016 that OpenGL drivers were being tested for the Raspberry PI allowing full 3D hardware graphics and a lot more Linux software to run on the RPi. Along with the release of the more powerful Raspberry Pi 3 I thought I will try out some existing OpenGL Games and software.


The Raspberry Pi was first released 4 years ago in Feb 2012. As part of the 2016 anniversary celebrations the Raspberry Pi foundation has released the Raspberry Pi 3 to add to the range of RPi computers available.


The Morpheus Razzmatazz is an all-aluminium Raspberry Pi case designed to work as a giant passive heatsink to keep your Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 cool whether you have overclocked it or just working it hard.


The Raspberry Pi Foundation have released the Raspberry Pi 2, using a more powerful quad core processor and 1gb of memory. Not only does this allow better performance from existing software but opens up access to new operating systems and software.
