The Wireless Remote is a modified Zipit Messenger, running it’s own very slow Linux.

3D Printed Pi Case

A member of the local chapter of the Distributed Hacker Maker Network(DHMN) made the case for me.

Thanks, it’s awesome!

The power inverter gives me a USB 5VDC power supply, and two 110VAC outlets.

Raspberry PI is on TV!


Here the raspberry Pi is broadcasting it’s location onto two Android devices.

The Wimm watch is wearable, and it always shows a map of where the Raspberry PI box is at.

The Raspberry Pi reads the GPS from the Android phone over bluetooth.

Then another Android shows a Google map of the GPS location of the travel box.

A Google Docs page is
updated every few seconds with the box’s location.
