Raspberry Pi project demo night at @ NYC Raspberry Jam #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


I stopped by the NYC Raspberry Jam meetup on Wednesday night with a box full of goodies — ten of our brand new Adafruit Pi Cases to share around to those who brought Raspberry Pi projects. There were some really lovely projects so here are some quick snapshots of them!

Here was the event annoucement @ Meetup.com:

Last month was lots of fun, so let’s do it again!

This month we’ll have some neat projects on display including a Pi powered RC car and a thirty year old retro Pi.  Bring yours to show off or get ideas from the ones on display.

Check out the Meetup site if you want to join next time!

TrammellHudson RasPiNYC Tandy03

Jam organizer, Trammell Hudson, brought his Tandy TRS-80 running on a RasPi — and let a few of us play a little bit of Minizork on it before taking it apart to show us how how this classic portable functions and handles screen refreshes.

RasPiNYC Quadcopter

Here Tom shares his a quadcopter in progress — not yet hooked up, but a viable rig for him to hack on while considering the differences between this, his first RasPi quadcopter, and the Arduino quadcopter he made before.

RasPiNYC RemoteCar

Tory shared his work-in-progress LEGO PiCar. He has been taking a look at some mechanical suggestions for how to build and optimize LEGO cars — and is already having better luck with the front steering responsiveness compared to where he started from existing example projects.

Tom RasPiNYC CameraTrigger 02

Stuart is a photographer and has quite an array of modular add-on kits (many of them from Adafruit!) he’s bringing to his Pi to setup a handy time-lapse rig that he is looking to build — one that will give him more options for controlling when it triggers, how it handles exposure, and some tracking and panning options.
