#UPSTAGRAM, a Hackerloop Creative Hack into Instagram @RaspberryPi #piday #raspberrypi

Fantastic Instagram hack from Hackerloop via raspberrypi.org:

The colorful flying house from the movie UP! recently crossed the sky above Paris, just between the Eiffel Tower and the Sacré Coeur! On board, an open-source electronic device, a Rapsberry Pi, publishing live pictures on Instagram.

It’s not about hacking Instagram, it’s about using it to build something that we were convinced would be awesome! Creativity is also about pushing existing tools further, in a way they weren’t initially designed for.” Valentin Squirelo, Hackerloop co-founder.

Why Instagram?

Instagram built its platform so that only the official iOS and Android apps can upload pictures. We wanted to make our way around that for their small experiment.

To achieve that, we studied Instagram’s apps and extracted the technical information that we needed to send photos on the service from any device.
