Minecraft Pi Edition with an LED Matrix

TL;DR: 8x8 LED matrix that shows your location in Minecraft. Code here https://gist.github.com/gelicia/6259737 Video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZdwhsOrBt4

On Monday I attended the Minneapolis stop of the Raspberry Pi road show. They did door prizes and I was the proud winner of an LED matrix that can run commands from the Raspberry Pi. Seeing as the only other real thing I’ve done with the Pi is program Minecraft stuff on it, I had to get the two to work together somehow…

Minecraft Skirt 1 : Cookies and Cakes

On October 17th, I asked twitter if I should make something for Minecon this year. I had kind of debated it, but thought nah… It was going to be a long trip, and I probably didn’t want to be responsible for carrying around stuff that would take up space in my luggage.

Well then Lydia Winters told me to do it so I got to work!

In the end, I had two skirts - one for the convention and one for the .party() Both were based off the same pattern, and used the same petticoat. I’m going to do a kind of “what I did” guide for this skirt separately since I have approximately a billion words about stenciling. I didn’t end up taking too many pictures of the second skirt being made since that was done very last minute.

If anyone looks over this and has any questions, feel free to just ask. I did this all kind of a while ago and some of the process is just something I don’t think about anymore. I don’t really mean this to be a stenciling tutorial per se- there are lots of those. This is just meant to be a bit about what I did, so maybe you can keep these things in mind when you go through a stenciling tutorial to do something fun :D

After prohibiting them for 116 years, McSorley’s Old Ale House was ordered by Mayor John Lindsay to open its doors to women in 1970. The article from that August describes the first co-ed bar brawl in McSorley’s history, when Lucy Komisar, a vice-president of the National Organization for Women and pictured at right, was heckled and antagonized by patrons.
