I really love many of the visual elements in Harry Potter and two of my favourite are the Marauder's map and the Weasley's clock.

I decided to take the two elements and build my own version. The clock sits at home checking for mobile phones to attach to the network. This is then shown as either home or away.

The phone detection is done by a Raspberry Pi and the movement and control of the servos by an Arduino. I use a bank of relays to connect them together.

As a really HP fan I would love to know what you think.

Over the last couple of months I have been working on a Harry Potter themed project. This uses a combination of a Raspberry Pi to detect the MAC addresses of different devices on the network and an Arduino to control servos. I call it ... the Marauder's clock.

The data connection between the Pi and Arduino is achieved via a bank of relays which I am also using to demonstrate to students at school data transfer in a very visual way.

Introducing my latest Raspberry Pi / Arduino project.

A Harry Potter themed Weasley Clock / Marauder's map mashup which I am calling the Marauder's clock.

This a very short video I made with my Arduino / Raspberry Pi motion time-lapse camera rig.

My first motion time lapse camera sunrise. Very early getting up at 4am

Over the last couple of months I have been perfecting my Raspberry Pi / Arduino time lapse motion camera rig. The Arduino Uno controls the motion of the motors and is setup with a membrane keypad. I wanted to find a safe way of getting the Arduino to trigger the Pi so used a 5V relay. I'm really pleased with this project.
