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.
In order to make what became the video “What has the British Council Ever Done For Me” a film made for Counterpoint who are the cultural relations thinktank of the British Council I decided to first ‘sketch’ out my idea. I therefore played all the character types I wanted to have in the final video, just to give me some kind of idea as to how it might look. It was such a success that I decided it was worthy of showing it in its own right. Both films were shown at the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA), London, UK.
