- Check out ‘intuitiveness’ in the usual household fashion of what’s possible in 10 minutes without reading the instructions.
- Explore how we can expand IOT possibilities with Raspberry Pi and learn more about inputs/outputs with these new sensors.
- Have fun and a bit of mischief (that’ll be me reassigning chores and trying to make them exciting).
- Seeing an end to the realisation during work meetings that you’ve put on odd socks in the dark winter mornings.
Set up stage 1: A quick sudo apt–get update and upgrade and we’re away:
Set up stage 2: An even quicker reboot and we’re connecting and tinkering in Rockpool.
Set up stage 3: A few decisions about colour sensors, RGB values and inputs/outputs. And then a quick test to get the ‘colour-o-meter’ working over random moving pets and confectionery wrappers.
Set up stage 4: The great sock-o-meter test (actually, the better test will be next week in brightly lit meeting rooms).
The mind wanders….
Bit of an update with another one to come mid-January:
