Cycle Chaser #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Matt Richardson shares his Raspberry Pi project Cycle Chaser.

A couple years ago, I created a dynamic bike headlight with a Raspberry Pi and a small, battery-operated projector. I’ve been eager to explore what else I could do with a projector and a Raspberry Pi on my bike, so I created the Cycle Chaser.

When you slow down, so does the animation. Of course, you can customize this project to suit your own purposes by changing the animations. You can also dive into the code and change the behavior based on your speed. Perhaps the flames behind you grow when you go faster? That’s all possible with some clever coding.
