Our little "Joey" 7-segment LED display for the Raspberry Pi has been funded - our Kickstarter campaign (http://kck.st/1OudIq2) reached its target!

That means that the Joey is happening. It will be a real product and will be delivered around the end of the year (some backers could receive theirs by Christmas...)

Hi teacher, yes, I built this clock. What do you mean it doesn't look like a clock? Yes, it's a clock. The FBI is on their way? Will Obama later invite me to the White House to try to smooth things over?

I thought that the Ahmed Mohamed Story, where he build a clock and took it to school and the teacher had him arrested, was global news: http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/16/us/texas- ... lock-bomb/ . This RPi add on could easily generate the same response, although after Ahmed paved the way for his fellow Makers, I would expect to get a visit to the White House and a chat with Obama instead.

I haven't seen that. Don't see the news much. ;)
