BathCamp: Hacking Dinosaurs for Fun and Profit*

*profit not guaranteed

So last Thursday night I gave a talk at the relaunch of BathCamp organised by Paul Leader. The topic of my talk? How the Raspberry Pi and Node-RED were used to upgrade the animatronic dinosaurs of Blackgang Chine on the Isle of Wight. I covered the reasons for wanting to replace the electronics that the dinosaurs came with, why the Raspberry Pi and Node-RED, and the progress of the project.

My slides from the talk can be found on Slideshare.
