Software and Raspberry Pi interface hardware for FlaschenTaschen.
FlaschenTaschen is inspired by projects such as the Muro de botellas or MateLight. A bunch of us have seen Mate Light in action at 32c3 and got excited 🙂 So our Noisebridge interpretation of it has a German influenced name.
Unfortunately, in the US, bottle reuse is not at all a thing, so there are no standardized crates with bottles you can buy. So we use milk crates (which is a thing) and put common, clear 12oz (355ml) bottles in (Mate, Corona,..) inside. Wrapped in aluminum foil, they make nice pixels.
In this video, you see the state close to completion. Or how about Star Wars on the completed display ?
The set-up is 9 crates wide and 7 crates high for a total of 63 crates (see wiring here) with 25 ‘pixels’ each (this is what fits in our MakerFaire booth). 45×35 pixels or 1575 pixels total. All operated by a Raspberry Pi that provides a network API to update the display.
