Highlights of a four-month time-lapse taken from a cottage overlooking Lake Huron, during an absolutely epic winter. We planted a double-Raspberry Pi camera on Dcember 27th and recovered it in early May, and were somewhat surprised to find that the board hadn't frozen or been eaten by raccoons. And indeed, the more-reliable Pi had taken over 42,000 photos. Including the lake freezing and thawing, icicles forming right in front of the camera (and then miraculously breaking off just three days later, before they get boring), killer storms, and ghostly single-frame shots of deer passing by. Hope you like it!
Holiday is the brainchild of Mark Pesce, co-inventor of VRML and panellist on the (sadly discontinued) ABC TV show The New Inventors. Designed in Australia, Holiday is a product in the burgeoning Internet of Things arena: a string of 50 coloured LED lights connected to an ARM based controller (similar to the Raspberry Pi), and comes after a failed Kickstarter raised 'only' $275,000 for the original Light on which Holiday is based.
