Ceefax Lives! (Courtesy of a Raspberry Pi) #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Ceefax was teletext system run by BBC. Nathan Dane created this Raspberry Pi based Ceefax system. Via Hackaday:
He has a particular enthusiasm for analog TV, and as such has his own in-house channel served by a UHF modulator. He shares with us the story of how he arrived at a teletext service, before writing code to scrape the BBC news and weather websites and populate his modern-day CEEFAX. Behind it all is a Raspberry Pi, with a vbit-pi board injecting the teletext signal onto the video, and raspi-teletext creating the pages from source material derived from a set of custom scraper scripts.
