Solving real life problems with Flotilla: Successful pairing of clean socks from the laundry basket
Check out 'intuitiveness' in the usual household fashion of what's possible in 10 minutes without reading the instructions.
Explore how we can expand IOT possibilities with Raspberry Pi and learn more about inputs/outputs with these new sensors.
Have fun and a bit of mischief (that'll be me reassigning chores and trying to make them exciting).
Seeing an end to the realisation during work meetings that you've put on odd socks in the dark winter mornings.
Set up stage 1: A quick sudo apt-get update and upgrade and we're away:
Set up stage 2: An even quicker reboot and we're connecting and tinkering in Rockpool.
Set up stage 3: A few decisions about colour sensors, RGB values and inputs/outputs. And then a quick test to get the 'colour-o-meter' working over random moving pets and confectionery wrappers.
Set up stage 4: The great sock-o-meter test (actually, the better test will be next week in brightly lit meeting rooms).
The mind wanders....
Bit of an update with another one to come mid-January:
No stopping us now! Even the Xmas Amaryllis gets a #Flotilla colour truth test. 2 weeks & we'll see :) @pimoroni pic.twitter.com/q8coq9DDwC — Claire Garside (@cgarside) January 3, 2016
Update: I should've remembered that you can't rush the full beauty of a Christmas amarylllis! Here it is........and the truth sensor worked.
PINK, definitely PINK :)
