Global Sunrise/Sunset Art Installation @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Artist Dries Depoorter’s 24h Sunrise/Sunset displays sunrises and sunsets from various locations around the world 24 hours a day. The beautiful project is a manifestation of Depoorter’s goal to “show that unsecured CCTV cameras can also show something beautiful.” Here’s more from Raspberry Pi Blog:
The two Raspberry Pis communicate with each other using the MQTT protocol — a standard messaging protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT) that’s ideal for connecting remote devices with a small code footprint and minimal network bandwidth.
One of the Raspberry Pis checks at which location in the world a sunrise or sunset is happening and streams the closest CCTV camera.
