A little more detail on my experience of PiCademy December 2015 and the project a few of us developed - RabbitSapien.
To have a go, you may have to have the following:
- The latest version of Raspbian, at the time of writing Jessie (https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/)
- Import the following
- sudo apt-get install python-twython
- sudo pip3 install explorehat
- sudo pip3 install gpiozero
Rise of Rabbitsapien - A team of us put together a project of a robot with a rabbit (no other soft toys were available) with a Passive IR sensor in its belly; that carries out a set routine when movement is detected. All control by a Raspberry Pi via an Pimoroni Explorerhat.
It was also great to come away with some many resources both physical and activities. Thank you to the Pi Foundation for such a good experience.
