South African group Bateleur decided that simply purchasing their latest album from iTunes was too easy. So, they took a Raspberry Pi, uploaded their album to it and set it to transfer the files to a USB stick when a “secret whistle” was heard. They embedded the Pi inside a semi-transparent fake rock shield and placed the package, that they’ve called “The Nest“… wait for it… part-way down Table Mountain in Cape Town! If you forget your USB stick, you can also plug directly into the Pi and listen via the exposed headphone jack.
