CERN Coding Pi Science Event

Laura: MagPi founder and Scottish Pi event organiser extraordinaire  Dr. William Bell has sent us this report from the home of the World Wide Web itself… CERN is the heart of particle physics research, where scientists are working to discover new phenomena using high-energy equipment. These research challenges have driven inventions, such as the internet and superconducting magnets used by the Large Hadron Collider. Theoretical calculations and experimental analyses are both heavily reliant on computer programming, so it’s a great place to host a Raspberry Pi programming event.

World of Light – an interactive feedback map

Using a self-written API, Joshua Krosenbrink gifted the new Usabilla office with the World of Light, a 426 RGB LED-powered map of the world. The API pushes user location information to a Raspberry Pi, animating the LEDs in real time to respond to website feedback as and when it’s received by the company. World of Light Nice LED wall I built with 426 RGB LEDs and a Raspberry Pi with WIFI.
