NYC Resistor Info Screen
Uncategorized Add comments
We’ve added a new information screen at NYC Resistor on the new wall that we built next to the new laser cutter. It has a Raspberry Pi connected to the local ethernet and boots into a full-screen kiosk display based on the instructions. To do this we modified the /etc/rc.local to invoke Chromium in “application” mode, which has no GUI chrome or user-interface elements:
Right now it shows us current tweets about @nycresistor, although the plan is to add video feeds for a front-door camera, Laser-vision and other stats about the space. Have any idea how to make this display more awesome? Let us know!

We have an infoscreen at the RaumZeitLabor in Mannheim. It displays a bunch of stats, pictures from our tumblr, public transportation departures, and the twitter feed.
