The Raspberry Pi Beret. It was inevitable. In fact, this one, by Sean O’Steen, is not the first, nor will it likely be the last.
“While not prepared for a full cosplay presentation like many other attendees at the convention, I certainly wanted to let my geek flag fly,” Sean tells us. “Knowing that Raspberry Pi would be one of the companies with a booth at the convention, I wanted to pay homage to the people and the products that made possible most of my home automation projects, and much of my journey into electronics self-learning. I used one of Raspberry Pi’s latest microcontrollers, Pico W, and some addressable LED lights to create the Raspberry Pi Beret; the kind you won’t find in a second-hand store.”
The beret has two modes. When ‘idle’, the beret’s LEDs light up around it with ever cycling animations at random intervals. With a phone connected to the wireless LAN on Pico W, Sean was able to control the lights from the web browser.
