Idea

The Xmas 2013's Project is the first Common Project that NJA is going to introduce at the meetup, people are welcome to help and join it. The last meetup we decided what kind of project to introduce and we chose something about Christmas.

The idea is to make a Christmas Tree with some bunch of stuff like:

  • Strip leds
  • Raspberry Pi with Face detection
  • Raspberry pi/Arduino audio detection
  • Some servos to move few small bells ( sound interaction )
  • Small boxes that shakes, moves, speaks, etc..
  • Hack some decoration ( maybe get something at Pound Land and hook it up with Arduino )
