Not that I need any more projects at the moment…
I have a stuffed Tux toy that sits on my desk that a friend made for me many years ago. It’s actually somewhat of a treasured possession of mine, and I would like to treat him to a couple of upgrades as delicately as possible. So far it’s just really the two:
- Bean bag ‘base’ to help him sit upright
- Actually runs Linux.
I feel like the latter might be quite mad, but I fancy the idea of having some sort of reactive LED lights for various notifications and perhaps some conductive thread on his feet for a simple interface, like @Claire_Lonsdale’s octopus. An internal battery backup and Pi Zero W inside would mean he could be a portable device.
Does anyone have any crazy suggestions for additional features?
