For art's sake

tumblr_na5o07wpNN1tx8r9vo1_1280 Nye Thompson was invited to create a piece of artwork to be displayed at the Canal Museum in London. She took the Pi, added a camera module and a projector and created the installation, called SLURP!, so that it projected the captured images into the ice wells area of the museum. You can read more over at DesignSpark and see her code over at GitHub. The installation runs from 20th August to 12th September.

pi-photo-frame Spencer Organ has taken a Pi, the PiTFT and a USB stick, merged them all together and created a small digital photo frame. Read about how he did it here.
