Passive-Aggressive Over-Solution Tech R Us #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

The description pretty much says it: how to say “stop doing that” to your housemates by saying it with science!

We don’t do meek post-it notes left for housemates. We build technical over-solutions as a hint to STOP DOING THAT THING!! A paean to the unsung, over-thought, and laboriously over-engineered black boxes around the space.

MusicSystemBootUpSequencer

Music system boot-up control box. No one ever turns on the amps in the right order, or allows them to warm up properly, grrr! Solution: use a Raspberry Pi to control power and on-timing via solid state relays. The box also has a USB audio card (red thing) to allow the raspberry pi to stream audio out to the network from the house mixer. The whole box can ONLY be controlled across the network – there are ZERO switches and buttons on the front panel for ill-informed fingers to explore. (Brett & Daniel) Tech over-solution points: 8 (microcomputer, fuses, network, CNC & laser cut parts, DIY circuit board, rack case, +2 for NO FRONT PANEL BUTTONS AT ALL)

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
