I was surprised with the number of a group of really interested and knowledgeable adults. Turns out a lot of them where either school teachers or librarians who where wanting to know more about the Raspberry Pi computing platform.
Phillip brought along his printer and a demo on how to build a coke can cooking stove:
Parents loved showing the kids Beau's 'old fashioned' rotary dial phone system and the kids loved dialling and chatting. Also, Beau's awesome Raspberry Pi powered MAME cabinet was another hit and I don't think there was quiet for a minute. He also had his Raspberry Pi powered music system playing in the background.
I brought along four Raspberry pi based displays: Endoscope-Pi, Doc-Pi, 3D-Pi and Rainbow-Pi. The kids loved the endoscope and putting the probe down the demonstration 'hole in the ground' which contained an insect at the bottom.
All up there where three floors of displays and more in other buildings next door.
Thanks to Alex, Beau, Phillip, Ross and Stephen for coming together and making it all happen on the day.
