256 Raspberry Pis Make Up This ‘See More’ Kinetic Sculpture @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

256 Raspberry Pi Kinetic Sculpture via cat.vt.edu

SeeMore is the collaborative brainchild of an artist and a computer scientist both driven to educate viewers as to the importance of parallel computational thinking. The project was inspired by the wildly successful Raspberry Pi (RPi) – a small, fully functional computer designed at the extremely low cost of 35 USD. The resulting work showcases the elegance and significance of parallel computation to viewers while simultaneously educating and inspiring parallel computational thinking. The 256-RPi, cylindrical structure is inspired both by early parallel Cray computer designs as well as taking cues from the fluid dynamic simulations these powerful computers are regularly tasked with calculating. This project translates data movement through a living sculpture that physically represents computation as it propagates and evolves across the surface of the form.
