Big Mouth Billy Bass meets Raspberry Pi Pico W @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
The folks over at Raspberry pi shared this project where a Raspberry Pi Pico W microcontroller web server facing the internet, allows visitors to control Billy remotely! Kevin McAleer shared the video on Youtube!
We definitely have a soft spot for Big Mouth Billy Bass projects. Over the years, we’ve seen countless hacks of the animatronic aquatic, the majority using our board to retrofit Billy with Amazon Alexa, or rig the fish to sing and dance along with streaming music. So it should come as no surprise that we were bream-ing with delight to see the fin-tastic Kevin McAleer seize the oppor-tuna-ty to introduce Billy to our new Raspberry Pi Pico W in his latest livestream.
