Milwaukee Makerspace Pi-powered Information System @Raspberry_Pi #raspberrypi

Here’s an update to the “Milwaukee Makerspace Pi-powered Information System” (MMPIS) rig at — you guessed it! –the Milwaukee Makerspace, where it acts as a kiosk “to provide members (and guests) with useful (and silly) information.” The makerspace has been documenting this tool-ever-in-process and it remains for me an excellent example of the value of whimsy as the means to inspire hackers and makers to keep fiddling with and improving really helpful shared tools:

During December’s “Space Improvement Workshop” at Milwaukee Makerspace I somehow convinced Chris to run a network drop for the permanent home for the MMPIS. This was after he convinced me to move the MMPIS to the permanent location. We both somehow convinced Tom to make a wall mount for the MMPIS. So yeah, the MMPIS is now permanently mounted in a location where you’ll see it when coming into the space. It’s right below the (small) LED sign, which is right below the big “TARDIS” letters.

It’s all pretty awesome. Check out the photo above! And yeah, we should probably drill a hole in the wall for those cables.

I also added one more screen. It’s a Mad Libs style thing which says “Hey we should totally build a ________-powered ________ for the space!” with the blanks filled in with weird things from two different lists. Also, the challenge accepted guy is there to accept the challenge.

There’s also a wiki page for the MMPIS.
