Cassette Scroller in @HackSpaceMag

With everything else going on in the world I almost missed this, my Cassette Pi IoT scroller has a really nice feature in this months HackSpace magazine (issue 29).

I provided a dump of all the images and coincidentally they chose my favourite shot. It’s a big pic! Makes me glad I didn’t scratch the case up too much, and also relieved I cleaned the underside of my kitchen tablecloth, which is the background 🙂

Rather than make the traditional trip to Sainsburys to get the hard copy, I ordered it online (I should really just give in and get a subscription) and I’ve been enjoying dipping into it in breaks from work.

It’s a really cracking read this month, I especially enjoyed learning more about the Men’s Sheds movement (p62-69) and their focus on improving mental health, almost by stealth. Inspiring words from Charlie Bethel and I hope the sheds can re-open as soon as possible to continue their good work.

I’m also loving the “Get Started in Wood Working” (p34-49) feature – I work with wood fairly often, but it’s one of those skills you never completely learn, and it’s fascinating to fill in gaps in my knowledge.

You don’t need to venture out to grab a copy, as usual the .pdf version is available free from https://hackspace.raspberrypi.org/issues/29

I should have a new Raspberry Pi project ready to publish in a couple of weeks, I’m just waiting for paint to harden and putting the video together at the moment – I’m taking it slowly though and really valuing the brief moments of escapism this brings of an evening. In the meantime here’s a gif of the “menu”.
