Startup Smithers held a Raspberry Jam on “Pi Day” which saw students, business owners, teachers, enthusiasts, and new enthusiasts get together at the Smithers Co-Working Space to explore options with Raspberry Pi 2’s.
Approximately 20 people exchanged ideas, worked on projects, and learned general uses for the Pi.
Ideas that were generated and/or completed included a motion sensor with camera attached, an oxygen sensor for increasing the efficiency of older model wood stoves, a video game console, and even a restaurant suggestion generator.
A good time was had by all and thanks to Tony Mondia for putting this together. Also a big thank you to Startup Canada for supporting this project and laying the groundwork for many more in the future.
