Three Raspberry Pi stations were set up to demonstrate software and hardware hacks. Raspberry Pi Station 1: We used station 1 to show attendees how to set up Minecraft Pi Edition on the Raspberry Pi and to run various python scripts from the global Raspberry Pi community.

Dimmable AC Light Box
This blog post is about a box that could dynamically dim AC bulbs via computer control. The main purpose being to react to music.
