I had a house viewing recently, as I’m moving in the summer, and I had somebody comment on a piece of tech I own. I had kind of forgotten I had it as it just blends in to my room now and is ‘part of the furniture’. Most people seem to think it is cool, albeit extremely nerdy. Regardless of people’s opinion on it, it is certainly rare and actually functional.
Introducing… my live feed dot matrix departure board.
Fully customisable and taps into the genuine national rail feed. In fact it actually has more capability than the real ones hanging on platforms. I didn’t build it, but I have made a few tiny changes to some of the programming. It is run on a tiny little raspberry pi. I don’t claim to fully understand how it works to be honest!
What nerdy/quirky bits of tech do you own?
