Dinosaurs and a Raspberry Pi

One of the Isle of Wight’s most popular attractions – a horde of animatronic dinosaurs! had a makeover last week (10th- 11th October) with a Raspberry Pi. This video is a general overview of how the two day event went.

Staff at Blackgang Chine, (where the dinosaurs roam around) were instructed by Lucy Rogers, and Neil Ford on how to hack the electronics the Dinosaurs came with using a Raspberry Pi. Taking inspiration from staff member Mark Butler who had already successfully got the T-Rex working on a Pi, a group of enthusiastic would-be hackers sat around and learned how to use Node Red for the code running it on a Raspberry Pi.

Home Camp 4 “Hack the House”

Homecamp brings together members of the technical community interested in using open systems and low cost, often re-purposed hardware to bring around a positive change in the way we use energy and appliances around the home. Homecamp 4 brought those  working with technology, whether software, hardware or web based applications to meet at an informal “unconference” held at C4CC to offer presentations, workshops, mash-ups and hack sessions with the aim of sharing information and furthering the development of the open energy community. Of the four presentations that day we hear from Ken Boak – inventor of Nanode.

 

 

What is Collaboration Part 1of 2

I was asked to speak and run a workshop at New Art Exchange in June 2014  on the topic of “Collaboration” for Real Creative Futures.  I wanted to interview those who work out of The Centre for Creative Collaboration where I am an Artist In Residence about their experiences of working in collaboration with others. What it means to them and how it operated in their working practice. I split it into two half, you can see here What is Collaboration Part 2of 2.
