Issue #331 - Wanna watch a movie? It’s only 2190 hours long…
You can take it easy after last week’s bumper Raspberry Pi Weekly issue; we’re back to business as usual with seven days’ worth of newness from the maker community.
A super slow e-paper display, which takes months to play a movie in full, was our most popular post this week. Our blog squad took to the comments to discuss which movies would be the most cinematic (or gross) to have playing in their homes for weeks on end.
We also saw another example of how fantastically ambitious and clever our young coders are, with a high-schooler’s slosh-test machine getting peer-reviewed by NASA engineers and tested on a zero-gravity flight.
And the latest issue of the MagPi Magazine shows us what it takes to get internet to students 17000ft up in the Himalayas.
Hope you had a good one.
