The current tutorial explains how to take the most of the Galileo board by using on it the Arduino and Raspberry Pi shields and modules designed by Cooking Hacks

Galileo comes with a single-core 32-bit, 400MHz Quark SoC X1000 processor, supports 3.3 or 5 volt shields and has an Ethernet and USB port. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux, the software of Galileo also has support for the Arduino shield ecosystem.

This tutorial allows the user to make a call to different numbers. Each button can be assigned to a number and originate a voice call. Pushing other button, you can end the voice call.

This project can be developed with Arduino or Intel Galileo. It is also compatible with Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge.

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.

It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.

The legend of Santa Claus tells that he lives in the cold, far, far north of the World. But does Santa Claus really live in the same North Pole? and if so, what is his exact position? The Cooking Hacks team decided to solve these questions!

To do so we ask to the little Tamara for writing her letter to Santa Claus, and we sent it along with a geolocation tracking device we built. The tracking unit is composed by the 3G+GPS module for Arduino and Raspberry Pi equipped with a camera, a battery and a light sensor.
