Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the projects created by the Hundred Rabbits
Duo who are currently sailing around the world, developing applications, games and Raspberry Pi projects for your enjoyment.
The team has used the Pi to create a solderless Pi weather station to display changes in barometric pressure and temperature to help predict the onset of stormy weather. The project uses a Raspberry Pi Zero 1.3 together with a few extra Pimoroni components in the form of the Black Hat Hacker, Enviro pHat, ScrollHD pHat, Hammer Header and Diffuser.
Rekka Bellum and Devine Lu LinvegaI hoping to use the Pi to create an AIS tracking system to help prevent the collision of yachts and ships. Currently these are available priced at around $700 but the duo hope to create a Pi powered version at a more affordable $100 to help them sale to Japan.For more information on all the projects together with all the code you require to make your very own jump over to the couple’s official website by following the link below.
