Our first Jam!

What is the craziest thing you have ever imagined..? Well, as we realized at our Raspberry Jam event last Saturday, you can make it happen!

More than 250 people had the chance to imagine, create and play and it was so. much. fun! 

We saw all sorts of crazy projects – things that were once only an idea but are slowly becoming a reality. Projects like 3D printing and virtual reality could not even be imagined just a few years ago, yet they both somehow appeared at our event along with other awesome new technology.

Here is what was showcased at the event:

  • 3D printer
  • Occulus Rift
  • Aber Sailbot
  • PiTop
  • PiPiano
  • Wii controlled Robot Arm
  • Quadcopters
  • Little bits Synth kit
  • Minecraft controlled by bananas
  • A DIY wooden arcade machine (OpenDesk) 

Some great photos of all the projects!

Meeting a lot of you was great and seeing families have such a great time together while also enjoying some cool new technologies was seriously fun. We hope to see you all again soon and stay tuned for future events!
