Find out when the Office Bathroom is Unoccupied with the Help of a Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

Handy project from Datadog.

Do you ever walk to the bathroom across the office only to discover that it’s in use? Then you’ve got to decide if you want to awkwardly hover right outside, or hold it in for a while and try again later. This is obviously a first world problem, but bathroom contention was getting to be a challenge as we quickly outgrew our office space.

At Datadog we are makers and hackers at heart. We like to tinker with software, but also with hardware and embedded systems. You will often find us digging into the latest microcontrollers, 3d printers, and more during our regulary maker nights. Recently a new tinkerer joined our team and suggested solving the distributed bathroom state problem with monitoring, while we waited to move into our new office space this fall. We all thought that’d be a fun project!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
