Grazer Linuxtage 2017

Just like almost every year, my friend Martin and I attended the “Grazer Linuxtage”, a free conference that annually takes place at FH Joanneum Graz. (#glt17)

We’ve more or less set-up the track for single board computers, consisting of a workshop on Friday, as well as an info-stand and a talk on Saturday.

Thanks to the 200+ people that visited our talk, hope you enjoyed it!

Our slides are available for download, feel free to contact us if you’ve got any questions concerning the discussed topics! [talk at Linuxtage website]

I’m building a PhotoBox

Finally I put up some time and started building a “PhotoBox” / “PhotoBooth”. Many thanks to my brother-in-law who’s skilled enough in handcraft to make this project possible without falling apart right away ūüôā

The main goal of this project is to come up with an actual use case¬†for one of my old Nikon D2x-cameras, that otherwise wouldn’t leave the shelf at all. Everything is build around the amazing¬†SLR Booth¬†android app – I’ve added a little Raspberry Pi spice (people using the booth should be able to download their pictures to their mobile phones for ~ 5 minutes¬†after they’ve taken a picture).

Once I’m done with it and everything¬†works as I expect it to, I’ll be sharing building instructions and the¬†source-code for the RPi extension ūüôā

What is the PhotoBox made of?

  • Screws
