element14 Presents — Project Mooninite: Raspberry Pi Asteroid Tracker

Whether you call them “blinkies”, “throwies”, “sparklers”, or anything else, LED art is an interesting nexus of street art and hacker culture.

Events such as DEFCON even have exhibitions for the most creative blinky designs while maker storefronts sell them in every conceivable shape. In this video, Matt collaborates with his friends at the National Upcycled Computing Collective to build a solar-powered “smart” blinky that not only looks cool at night, but contributes its computing power to a worldwide network that’s looking for disease cures, extraterrestrial intelligence, rogue asteroids, and more!

How To Build A Raspberry Pi LED Blinky For BOINC [Trailer]

The Berkley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) allows citizens to donate their spare computing power to help scientific research. In this element14 Presents project inspired by the 2007 Boston Mooninite Panic, we’re going to build a basic electronics hacker project: an LED blinky that not only makes cool designs, but also contributes computing power to BOINC by means of a solar-powered Raspberry Pi!
