So being part of the Cane Tech Squad we have opportunities to tinker with various things of our choice. I have decided to do a project with Raspberry Pi which is basically a small computer that you can do almost everything in. The project I’ll be doing over the next few weeks, or even months, is building a photo booth that uses a programmed raspberry pi.
I chose this mostly because I think it’s a very cool idea, and photo booths are really cool. I would also have to learn a coding language called python which is a very basic and easy to learn language. Which I am very excited to learn. I do have some experiences with Raspberry Pi’s at Clinton-Massie, my friends and I attempted to build a super computer out of them during robotics club.
I am honestly very excited and eager to start this project, I’m sure I’ll keep everyone in the know with my 20% Time. If you want to learn more about the Raspberry Pi click here
