Skillset(s) :

3D Modelling 3D Printing Electronics Mediawiki Programming Python Raspberry Pi

Mediawiki Project

This was mostly built as a curiosity, and a study on how to combine mediawiki with physical computing, which could tie into physical Office Automation.

A tape measure rigged up with a Raspberry Pi using Python and a servo, which scrapes a specific mediawiki page for a number and rolls out the tape to that number.
