Pi's seen on TV

Mon Jan 29, 2018 9:23 am

Watching the recent episode of BBC Click, as I do lazily in the morning at the weekend.
I noticed a Pi camera. (good old Sunny connector)
Which means lots and lots of Pi cameras, a slow-mo play back (just now to doble check) means lots and lots of Pi..

BBC Click : Cheating death in silicon valley.

(just after 8 mins in, but 8min 24seconds was the giveaway when actually watching).


for the Pi spotter in you :geek:

I'm sure it's fascinating. Care to give a detailed description for those of us not in the UK?

It showed many Pi cameras in a "tent" to capture 3d avatars of holocaust survivors:

It's a later version of this project:
The last Holocaust survivor to record an interview for USC Shoah Foundation’s New Dimensions in Testimony program in 2015 was Eva Schloss, survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Anne Frank’s stepsister.

Eva traveled from England to Los Angeles to spend December 14-18, 2015, answering over 1,000 questions about her life before, during and after the Holocaust on the USC Institute for Creative Technology’s 3D-capture stage. Voice-recognition technology will allow students and museum visitors in the near future to have a conversation with Eva’s 3D virtual likeness about her experiences as a Holocaust survivor and her messages for future generations.

BBC click again (so iPlayer).
Honestly the only technology show on our TV and it's a short programme on the News channel. It's obviously so unimportant* that they produce a special short 15mins version (when it's only 30min to start with).

A small school using them off-line in the himalayas.



*Unimportant = Not a reality show watching people bickering or trying to get rich quick, not another way to cook chicken. Not, yet some more comments on some foreign politician and his tweets that no one really cares about.

Clearly what we need is a reality show where contestants (politicians) are given a Pi3B and a raw chicken. The one who serves the best Chicken Pi, as judged by Mary RaspBerry, without giving anyone food poisoning or indigestion wins £1m. That should get more Pis on TV. (Hint: connect GPIOs to 5V...)(Second hint: don't try it at home if you value your Pi)
